Sporting Schools

Football Australia is the accredited Sporting Schools provider for Football in Australia!

The program is designed by our technical and youth development teams to use Football as the vehicle for fun, engagement and physical activity with learning principles that can be then applied back into the classroom environment. 

With a focus on learning movement skills, teamwork, coordination and fun, the program encourages children to participation in game-based activities that reflect the Football Australia ‘Play for Life’ philosophy and the Personal Development, Health, and Physical Education syllabus.

The foundation of the Football Schools Program is based on the junior program: MiniRoos. 

Football Australia will look to engage past, current, and upcoming Matildas & Socceroo player appearances, A-League Men & A-League Women players, and local community club interaction to encourage the transition of school students into the Football Junior Pathway. 

Our programs are tailored to the needs of each school, ranging in duration and are inclusive and available to students of all abilities.
