I am putting together a skills matrix of suggested/expected age specific skills

I am putting together a skills matrix of suggested/expected skills a child should have as they progress through the Continuum. eg, by under 7 a player should be able to do ABC, by under 8 they should be able to do DEF, by under 9 they should be able to do XYZ, etc. I want to break this down into novice, core and advanced, as well as positional (as they get older) Does anyone know of a format that exists like this already somewhere?

Hi; I have a matrix that's a bit old, but we used it with RFU some years ago to distinguish between what was expected of youngsters who were to be considered County etc material compared to players who were club players. If you are interested contact me; ...link in profile...

Some of our members might like to look at this as well - perhaps we could do a link to it in the next newsletter?

Let me know if thats possible

I hope you are well in the Italian sunshine!
