The objective of the Academy is to prepare girls and boys that want to develop greater skills to enable them to play to a level that exceeds community football. This development will assist with a transition into Junior National Premier League Football, or into other advanced pathways if you wish to pursue that direction. NPL competitive football now starts at under 14 competitions. The Mount Eliza Academy will provide a training program that is equal to any of the local NPL clubs at affordable fees.
Mount Eliza Soccer Club’s Accademy is open to Girls and Boys with the Girls only program running on the same lines as the boy’s program.
Our Academy players will receive the following.
In addition to one night of training with their regular coach, Academy players enter 20 weeks/sessions of elite training from mid late Feb until October. These sessions are run by our Director of Football.
As a part of the Academy, players will have opportunities to represent the club at Galas* and major tournament throughout the year. These include prestigious tournaments such as the Casey Cup etc.
Each Academy training group will be composed of a minimum 16 spots per age Group. This is to be made up from the Kangaroos team plus selected players showing potential in their development from other club teams.
