Sydney Football Academy focuses on individual skills which works in stages. We focus on common gameplay situations such as running with the ball, defending principals, changing direction and 1v1 situations.

We believe in our program which has helped develop strong technical players over the years. We view, analyse and plan how our sessions should be done in a competitive, with intensity and passionate way.  

Depending on the level of the player we also look to develop skills that players would not usually practice in team training sessions, for instance controlling high balls, striking of the ball, headers and reverse passes.

 

Coaches & Admin.-
