Erindale College

- Sydney FC


As part of the Sky Blues ongoing efforts to expand the reach of their talent identification and player development pathways a new Sydney FC Academy School program will be launched next week in Canberra in partnership with Erindale College and Wanniassa

The Sydney FC Academy School program at Erindale College/Wanniassa School will offer students in years 7-12 a unique opportunity to study and train at the newest of seven networked Sydney FC Academy Schools. The program will also have the capacity to offer a skill development program to be delivered to students at the Wanniassa Junior campus.

The program will be the second satellite Sydney FC Academy School program outside of the Sydney metropolitan area joining Illawarra Sports High School in Wollongong. Other programs in the Sydney metro area include Endeavour Sports High School (Sutherland Shire), Narrabeen Sports High School (Northern Beaches), Bossley Park High School (South West Sydney),
Crestwood High School (Hills District) and Matraville Sports High School (Eastern Suburbs).

Technical training will be provided by approved Sydney FC coaches with academic and well being support offered by school staff dedicated to providing a first class coaching and learning experience for young players in a full time year round training environment.

In addition to training with their local clubs, players will train three times per week during school hours and participate in Sydney FC talent identification days, the Sydney FC cup, attend match day and training ground experiences and participate in training sessions with Sydney FC academy staff during monitoring and support visits.

Over time the program aims to collaborate with local clubs helping to provide more opportunities to players, develop additional player pathways, produce a broader base of talent and assist with quality long-term development of young players.
