Pre-Academy Footies

What is Pre-Academy Footies?

Pre-Academy Footies is a development program that provides a more advanced training environment for our U7 & U8 recreational players who seek to develop individual skills at a more accelerated rate than the traditional recreational model offers.  Footies train under the guidance of professional, licensed coaches up to twice a week.

Our Pre-Academy Footies program will provide a fun and challenging environment that will enhance each player’s confidence, technique, and instincts to accelerate an understanding of the game and better prepare them for more competitive environments in the future.
