NSFA Football School Term 1


NSFA Football School – Term 1, 2016: Starting 1 February
Dear Parents,

The NSFA Football School is a year round development program, operating in each school term. The name reflects the manner in which our young players will be “educated” in football via the building blocks set out in the National Curriculum.
In support of the FFA National Curriculum the NSFA aims to implement best practice development programs to give young players the opportunity to fulfil their potential and enjoy the world game.
There is a specialist Goalkeeper Coaching Program for young goalkeepers to learn the key technical aspects of goalkeeping and gain confidence in playing this specialist position.
Key points:
  • Football Development program operated by NSFA in a non-competitive environment for boys and girls aged between 6 and 13 years (up to 15 years for Goalkeepers).
  • Girls only groups will operate on Mondays with a female coach.
  • Players of all abilities welcome, to promote development players are grouped by their stage of development.
  • Enjoyable atmosphere where ‘time on the ball’ is maximised and games are central in the program structure.
  • Professional and experienced football development coaches.
  • Structured program consisting of model sessions from the FFA National Curriculum.
  • Option to attend one day per week (Mon OR Fri) or two days per week (Mon AND Fri).
  • NSFA Football School is in addition to any club training and games, players continue to play and train with their clubs.
  • Registration is on a term by term basis.
  • Parent education in player development and player pathways.
  • Players can join the program mid-term (pro-rata fee applied)
