The renowned NWSF Academy provides an opportunity for local club players to participate in additional sessions to enhance their football development. The Academy is for players from U8s to U18s for all genders. Training is delivered by experienced, qualified NWS Spirit FC coaches at Christie Park. Sessions will develop players understanding of the NWSF DNA by focusing specifically on their core actions through technical repetition and game-based training.
The Academy is the first step in the NWSF Pathway, exposing players to representative football and providing an opportunity to accelerate their development.
We also are pleased to offer Pre-Academy, a non-selective program run in conjunction with the Academy dates for U6-U7 players to develop their skills and to prepare for future participation in the full Academy. Players are developed by NWS Spirit coaches in a fun, engaging environment.
