Thank you for your interest in the new Gymea United Football Academy held at Gymea Bay Oval.

The purpose of the academy is to provide players of the Gymea United FC the opportunity to develop their football skills by professional coaches in our own backyard. There is no selection process although all attendees will be placed in groups of similar ability. The Academy is for both beginner and elite players looking to further develop their footballing skills.

The 2019 program will be run by the Sydney Football Academy. This program differs to the School holiday camp, as the school holiday program is focused on fun events and football development. The Gymea United Football Academy program is primarily focused on a highly successful ‘skills development program’ although there will certainly be fun elements, particularly for the younger brigade. The Sydney Football Academy is a very experienced organisation running academy workshops throughout Sydney.

The Gymea United Football Academy is an 8 week program run over 10 weeks during a full school term. This allows a 2 week grace period for wet weather.

Should 3 or more sessions be lost to wet weather, the academy will either run an additional day or extended 90 minute sessions on subsequent training days. This is dependent on ground and student availability, and whether days are lost in the initial or final stages of the program. Children who are unavailable on an organised training day will forfeit that day only.

The cost of the program is $150 per player.  All new players need to purchase a training kit for $50.
