STRATEGIC DIRECTION - METHODOLOGY

The hubs will provide the base for the SAFA Talent pyramid, where in each of the SAFA LFAs there will be a talent identification and development centre for the most talented youth in the LFA to meet once a week for advanced talent development, in a fashion similar to that of the DFB “Stukspunkte”, or Competence Centres, that form the base of the German football talent pyramid.  


These sites, in each LFA, will be the base for the development of LFA Talent, as well as the centre for coach and administrator training and development.


From each hub we will establish the spokes that reach out into the schools and clubs in the local association, providing the training and support in both football and youth development.












The tracked and independently verified outcomes that they achieve include the following:

  1. 42% decreased in incidents of violent crime within a 600m radius of the centre
  2. 49% increase in educational outcomes of children in the programme
  3. Youth leadership and development outcomes
  4. Health outcomes in HIV/Aids and nutrition.

Integrated fully into this youth development through football programme is a TALENT DEVELOPMENT programme that will be fully aligned with the Vision 2022 programme.


"We have set an ambitious goal to develop one of these Centres in each of the 341 SAFA LFAs,

as well as a larger one in each Regional Centre, a total of 400 sites in all".
