Our training calendar will be geared towards players’ needs and other commitments.

  • Academy members will be assessed on an ongoing basis by our Head Coach and will be placed in the development squad (defined by colours) that best meets their developmental needs.
  • Academy members will receive the benefit of supplementary online training and goal-setting to help their development (via S2S), discounted training costs and a training shirt.
  • Academy members may also be invited to access our Australian elite football academy opportunities interstate and overseas, including regular high level international tournaments.  We are committed to a fully transparent cost structure for the latter.
