Our aim is your Goal !

2022 Female Only Academy

SA Football Academy was formed in 2014 to provide a platform for soccer players that wanted the ability to advance further in the sport. The Academy has produced quality players that have made a name for themselves in NPL, State,

A and W league. Our method of training is game orientated giving real game practices rather than skills for small sided games. We do practice in small sided games for ball mastery skills to take to the big pitch. We look into the future where players compete on full size grounds so that is what our main goal is and should be for our future players. 

2022 the Academy has made the decision to become a female player academy and have academy teams from U/13, U15, U17 in acordance with federation club age group structure and Senior Open women players (mainly for pre-season).

  Our sessions will not interfere with club or SIP sessions with our aim to produce resilient, confident, skillful and professional attitude players into the greater football playing system, in recreation, club, state, and higher. We are looking forward to welcoming you to the Academy family and being part of the players football journey.
