Develop the Player
Development of each player is a key element of the KCFA program. Through individualised instruction and coaching, along with on-going video analysis of matches and training, a player can take an active part in their own development as a player.
Theoretical sessions covering tactics, structure and game plans will also aid each players development. Throughout the program, players will also participate in coaching and refereeing courses, as well as develop nutrition plans and recovery sessions. Our aim is to develop players with well-rounded knowledge and ability.
Technical - Tactical - Physiological - Social
The Football Academy is conducted as a stand-alone subject at the College. The focus of the academy is to add value and support to what our students are doing at their football clubs, by giving them extra hours of instruction in the technical, tactical, physiological and social areas of their development. Students will also focus on theoretical football specific elements such as nutrition, sports psychology, fitness, injury prevention and management, the "Skill Trainer" coaching and refereeing (Laws of the game), licences. Technical, tactical and physiological areas are sequentially developed over a 7-year course and align with Football Federation Australia's national curriculum 'Building Blocks'.
Students receive up to 3 Sessions of football a week, totalling 5.5hours
Minimum of 3 hours of practical football sessions
30 mins of match analysis
