ADP Information & FAQ


Thank you for registering to Macarthur Football’s Association Development Program (ADP)!

This webpage aims to provide parents with general information for the program across all locations. If you have further questions, please contact


What to Bring & Uniforms

Players are advised to treat the ADP training just as your club training, as such it is a requirement to be wearing football boots, shin-pads and the ADP Uniform at all sessions. Please also ensure players have a full bottle of water at every session.

For the first week, you are also free to wear your own club kit or any kit you would like before receiving your ADP uniform. We will provide an update on ADP uniform before the first session.


Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

  • Coaching groups will be based solely on age groups in the first instance and will not take into consideration skill levels. However, we do accommodate for movement between the groups during the program so that kids can be with their friends or be moved to a group that they feel more comfortable in for their skill level.
  • The ADP runs for a total of 20 weeks, with a Games Night scheduled every 5th week of the program. I have attached a PDF copy of the 2024 ADP Schedule for you to be able to plan ahead. Access 2024 ADP Schedule HERE
  • In case of wet weather cancellations, we provide the attached Train At Home Activities. Make-up sessions are also available by attending a session on another night when possible.
  • In general, players in the U5-U8 age group will start at 5:15pm and finish at 6:15pm. Whilst players in the U9-U13 age group will start at 6:30pm and finish at 7:30pm. We ask that players arrive 5 minutes before the start time of each session to allow for enough time to find parking and to make the most of the 60 minute training session. If parents of children in the U8-U9 age group would like to change their time, they can notify Kevin and attend the session that works best for them.
