It was tougher for the under-12s.

They finished bottom of the draw on four points following one win, one draw and three losses in their five-match schedule.

During the tournament, NNSWF had a technical group present to assess players and coaches on the key components of the FFA National Curriculum.

The group consists of head coach of skill acquisition Ryan Campbell and technical advisors Craig Deans and Gary Phillips.

"The technical group has been very impressed so far with the individual skill of players," Ryan said.

"We see players able to find solutions to problems which is exactly what the program is about."
