The Club realises that it is to diversify its programs to meet the changing needs of its Members. The Club's philosophy is to provide an environment that encourages player learning, skill development and best experience. Based on our philosophy the Club has identified that there are several areas where the introduction of an Academy can expand our current program ;

  • A player should have the opportunity for additional training, outside of team training to improve their skill development, confidence and experience in line with the FFA Curriculum.
  • A player may be new to the game, starting at a later age and will benefit from additional skills based training.
  • A player may wish to learn in a non competitive environment that will instil in them a level of confidence sufficient to join a competitive team at a later time.
  • A player may have other demands where they cannot commit to full training and competition but still wish to participate in the sport.
  • A player may just wish to participate in a social environment. 
  • Where teams are full, a player has another opportunity to remain with the Club and stay in a football learning environment.
  • If a player is not selected for a team (teams full, new to the game) the Academy may be recommended.
  • We will have football programs available for all players.

Academy Programs: 
Aurora will run Term programs. A player can participate for just 1 term or they may elect to participate for 1 or more terms. (A player MUST register for each term. Registration will open towards the end of each term for the next).

This program is ideal for a player that is new to the sport or has played for a limited period. It will be split into 2 age groups to ensure that the program is delivered at an age appropriate level.
