The McDonald’s Junior Framework provides a consistent, coordinated national approach to the development of junior players. Its main aim is to provide all junior players with high quality football experiences that increase both skill levels and the passion for playing football.

Through the McDonald’s Junior Framework players will experience age appropriate football games and coaching in a programme that is specifically tailored to meet their football wants and needs. Through standardised playing formats, clear outcomes and training recommendations for each stage of a players development, alignment will be achieved across New Zealand in McDonald’s Junior Football as well as increased support for our volunteer coaches.

The importance of the McDonald’s Junior Framework cannot be underestimated. Implemented with commitment at all levels, it will ensure the experience provided at the grassroots leaves Kiwi kids enthused, technically competent and in love with our game.
