Goals and Expectations
The Pathway to Professional Football Academy (P2P FA) will provide a flexible and player-centred learning environment that supports young players in learning the game they love, and also aims to encourage and challenge them to be respectful members of our community.
Our intent is to educate and develop talented players from all ACT NPL and junior clubs and representative programs. Those that are selected for our elite program, known as the Orange Squad, will demonstrate good touch, passing and dribbling skills, make effective use of possession, possess good game sense and strong commitment, look to impact the game and communicate well. These players will receive free high level support from our Consultants in Sports Science and Mindfulness as well as access to an individualised payment scheme that reflects their ability to access the program.
Our Head Coach Mr Ian Worthington will provide functional Academy training sessions to the Orange Squad geared towards professional football. Sessions will include personal training (PT), technical skills, effective ball possession and team attacking / defending. All Orange Squad Players are able to choose specific training they require at times that suits their needs. Orange Squad players will receive video analysis as part of their program.
Please note that this special program will involve significant ongoing training commitments, some potentially during school hours in the morning.
