A specialised, 10-week program aimed at developing the skills of young footballers in the Newcastle and Hunter Valley region under the guidance of Newcastle Jets-trained coaches. It's open to all players, no matter their playing experience or skill level, and thanks to Skills Program Partner, Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group (NCIG) it's back in 2020.

Open to kids aged 7 - 13, the Newcastle Jets Skills Program will see your child spend an hour with Newcastle Jets trained coaches every week for 10 weeks, improving their football skills and confidence in a controlled and comfortable environment.
