Academy Training Program

Sydney FC has been running a Academy Training Program for three years.

The program is open to talented 10, 11, 12 and 13 year old boys, and 10, 11 year old girls who are currently part of SAP or Development squads at their local association or NPL club.

The year-long program is run as a development program across 40 weeks, with opportunities for selected talented players to train under the Sydney FC Youth philosophy prior to the start of the Academy from 13 years and older.

The program is run by coaches who work or have worked within the Sydney FC Academy, and follows a curriculum based on the exercises used with our U13's Academy to maximise development in players of this age.

The program runs from Term 4 through to Term 3 and is capped to a maximum of 150 players.

How to Apply
Applications for the yearly program open in August of each year with the program start in October. 

Applications are then assessed and final selections are made.

For the 2020/21 Program all selections have been made and the program is at full capacity.
