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 pathways to professional football opportunities interstate and overseas, including regular high level international tournaments. We are committed to a fully transparent cost structure for the latter.
