Who is it for?

The North Sydney United Mixed Development Squads are designed to develop junior talent in the Under 7 to Under 16 age groups.

The North Sydney United Mixed Academy is designed for our most talented juniors in the Under 7 to Under 16 age groups.

Both of the above deliver 10 months of training twice a week. Your child will be coached by the same person all season in order to build a relationship that lets us accurately report their progress. Training nights will be confirmed once we establish our final numbers and squads. A parent information night will be confirmed in January.

What is it?

Under the direction of North Sydney United’s Director of Coaching, this is an intensive program for young players which aims to create a well-rounded footballer.

All training sessions are carefully structured to achieve the correct balance between the technical, tactical, physical and educational components according to the age and stage of development of each player. Our program is designed to identify and nurture young talent with the aim of developing them into better footballers.

We never forget that football is also a sport to be enjoyed and so we create an environment that is social and fun as well as being competitive.

When are games on?

Saturdays. The season is generally aligned with Terms 2 and 3.

What about training?

Training runs twice a week from February to August and then once a week until the 2021 trials.

All training is conducted by a professional coach with an AFC B Licence. A qualified coach with a Junior Licence will coach the teams on game days.
