Football Excellence Program

 
 
 
 

Rationale

 

The Football Program of Excellence course has been designed to provide players with the opportunity to further develop their football and futsal skills whilst engaging in a course of study based on the Australian Curriculum.  Students engage in sessions to improve their football and futsal abilities, working through elements of skill acquisition and game training.
 

The Football Program of Excellence is designed for athletes who aspire to be selected as part of a regional, state or national team.  Students in the program study football as a subject for up to five hours each week, utilising College and outside College time.  Sessions are primarily conducted at Kawana Waters State College.
