We run a fully supported winter programme (February to August) with professional coaching.  Teams train twice per week and play in the local Canterbury District competition. Academy teams are selected through trials at the end of November please read further for more information or drop us an email.

In 2018 we are introducing Performance Tracking Technology and the Adidas Smart Ball as integral components of the Winter Program.

When playing for the Academy both Players and Supporters are expected to behave in a certain way.  Please read the Code of Conduct and be sure that you and your child are willing to embrace this.  We are keen to develop and maintain the best learning environment for the players.  You will be asked to confirm your acceptance of this code when purchasing these services.

The program is as follows

  • February to March – 8 week pre-season training period coupled with trial games,
  • April to August – 20 week season playing teams across the local district representing Marrickville Football Club.
