NBFC Academy Program Outline and Trials – Trials Details Updated, U15/U16 Boys


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


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.


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. )
