Academy Training Sessions

Don’t practice until you get it right, practice until you can’t get it wrong.

Our Camberwell centre operates every Saturday morning excluding the weeks of Christmas and New Year's Eve and the school summer holidays.

Pre Academy Phase (4-6 year olds)

Under 6s – 9-10am (4 & 5 year olds on September 1st 2023)

The Pre Academy Phase is all about fundamentals. We would like to create a positive introduction to the game for the players where they can grow a relationship of both love for the game and passion to develop. We will provide them with a fun and safe environment that allows them to begin to learn and understand the basic techniques of the game. They will be given plenty of opportunity to practice these in game situations from 1v1 to 3v3.

Foundation Phase (6-10 year olds)

Under 8s – 10-11am (6 & 7 year olds on September 1st 2023)

Under 10s – 11am-12pm (8 & 9 year olds on September 1st 2023)

The Foundation Phase age groups will be introduced to a full holistic curriculum to develop technical, tactical, physical, psychological and social attributes. Focus will be on developing the fundamental techniques of the game and progressively understanding how to incorporate them into game situations. Discovery and decision making will be encouraged through building a questioning of why, when and where techniques will be most effective in the game.

Youth Development Phase (11-14 year olds)

Under 12 Development – 12-1pm (10 & 11 year olds on September 1st 2023)

Under 12s – 1-2pm (10 & 11 year olds on September 1st 2023)

Under 14s – 2-3pm (12 & 13 year olds on September 1st 2023)

The Youth Development Phase will continue to develop fundamental techniques but consider more intricate, advanced and alternate elements of techniques to improve the range of options a player has on the ball. We will increase focus and expectation on understanding the game and making decisions of why, when and where to use techniques to have the most positive impact on the game as an individual but within the framework of a team too.
