Girls Academy Trials – Still spots in G10 and G12… Updated 11/11/18

Spots still open in Girls U10 and Girls U12.  

Contact Matilde Johns on academy@northbridgefc.com.au if interested.

 

The program runs in alignment with the ‘Womens National Premier League’ and ‘Girls Skill Acquisition Programs’ currently provided within the North Shore Mariners program.

The sides will follow the same curriculum and vision and philosophy as NSM working under the supervision of Academy Technical Director Freddie Seccombe and a team of FFA Licensed coaches.

We advise players who are passionate about their football to come to trials with the Academy on Monday 29th October.

This is a perfect stepping stone for your daughters footballing journey and provides a more professional environment and development whilst maintaining the FUN and SOCIAL aspect of the game.

Whether your daughter is looking to play for fun or develop through an elite pathway there are opportunities for all skill levels.

The sides will compete in the NSFA top divisions and for those girls keen to accelerate their development opportunities can be provided within older age groups and the North Shore Mariners Womens Program.

As Womens Football continues to grow we will look to provide the correct opportunities for girls to both enjoy and grow on their journey with the sport.

We hope to see you all next week at the trials and look forward to the continued growth of Female Football within Northbridge Football Club.

 

Below are some examples of girls who participated in the Academy during 2018 and have been selected for the Mariners 2019 sides.

 

Girls Skill Acquisition Program U11 Anabelle Martin, Jazmin Martin
Girls Skill Acquisition Program U12 Sienna Warden, Brigie McCoy
Girls Skill Acquisition Program U13 Claire James, Sahara Tran, Jorja Casamento, Giovana Vidal
Womens National Premier League U14 Lilian Marquis, Maddie Beeley

Why Choose The Northbridge Academy. Trials this week.

 

The Northbridge Academy is the most successful Academy on the North Shore.

1] It prepares more players for representative football than any other local Academy.

2] The Academy itself competes at the highest level and has produced many teams who have gone onto win local and state wide competitions. In 2018 the Academy had two teams in the Grand Finals of the prestigious Football NSW Champion of Champions Competition.

3] The Northbridge Academy also benefits from being the longest running Academy on the North Shore. With experience comes knowledge, we have learnt what works – and what doesn’t. We know what players and parents are looking for.

4] The Northbridge Academy links directly into the North Shore Mariners.
The Academy follows the Mariners Development Program.

5] Players moving between the two programs will be fully acquainted with the drills and playing styles. Each season more Academy players are being promoted to the North Shore Mariners.

6] Importantly the Northbridge Academy has a dedicated Technical Director.

Northbridge Academy Promises.

1] High quality, well accredited coaches working with the Academy Technical Director.
2] All teams share consistent and uniformed programs
3] Involvement in additional Competitions like The Kanga Cup, The FNSW State Cup and The Proctor Cup.
Younger age groups will also compete in the Mariners Cup.
4] Opportunities to train-on with the North Shore Mariners during season.
5] Realistic chances to be selected for the North Shore Mariners
6] Coach Education. All Academy and Mariners Coaches are part of the same coaching education program.

The Northbridge Academy is also directly linked to the Club’s own High Performance Training Program, ProZone.

Why ProZone.

ProZone is small group, high intensity training designed to help players develop skills and work on problem areas.
Having this type of Program on-site has a huge advantage.
It means the Academy and ProZone coaches will be working together to help the player meet his or her objectives.
The Team Coach and the ProZone Coach communicating and working together being a huge advantage to fast track skill development.

2019 Technical Director Appointed.

Northbridge FC welcomes our new Academy Technical Director. Freddie Seccombe [ FFA B License ]

Northbridge Academy Program Outline and Trials – Updated 11/11

Purpose

To provide a challenging, engaging and development-focused environment which enhances the ability of our players through effective coaching.

Program

All our teams are appointed a qualified coach for the season. Each coach has a minimum of the FFA Skill Training or Game Training Certificate. Our coaches will be mentored and supported by our full-time Football Development Manager.

 U8 Mixed, U9-U11 Boys & U10 Girls – Each “A” team will be nominated to play in the division 1 Northern Suburb Football Association (NSFA) MiniRoos competition. “B” teams will play in the division suitable for the group.

 U12-U16 Boys and Girls – Each “A” team plays in either the Super League (Boys division 1) or Diamond League (Girls division 1). “B” teams will play in the division suitable for the group.

Commitment

Every Academy team trains twice a week. If anyone finds they have issues with training availability after the schedule is known, they should contact us to discuss options (e.g. train on with another team, attend Prozone weekly in lieu…).  All players are expected to prioritise their academy football matches above other weekend activities. 

Program duration approx. 27 weeks (Feb-Aug with breaks during school holidays. The first week of school holidays off, 2nd week back in training as there will be a game for all in the last weekend of school holidays. If teams go to Kanga Cup then they can be flexible with this in July. )

The Football NSW Champion of Champions is for all teams that won their local Association Division One Competition. Played through September and October each year. It is a knockout style competition so you just have to keep winning to stay in the race to become the champions of this state wide competition.

Northbridge Under12 Boys and Under21 Women’s into Football NSW
Champion of Champions Grand Final.

2-1 to Northbridge Under12A on Sunday out at Valentine Park. This brilliant win takes the boys into the Grand Final next Sunday. Well done Jake, well done Maria and congratulations lads, been many years since we have had a boy’s team reach the Grand Final in this very tough, state wide competition.

 

The girls took on Mt Pritchard in the semi final of Football NSW’s elite Champion of Champions on Sunday.
At half time it looked over with the Northbridge girls putting 3 into the net – but no one told Mt Pritchard who hit back with 2 goals within 10 minutes of the second half.
From there it was game on with Northbridge only securing the win late in the game, 5-3. The team now move onto the Grand Final next Sunday.

 

 

 

 

The team wore black arm bands in memory of Nikki Mackay.

Club would like to thank Norths in Cammeray for their ongoing support
