The purpose of the Sporting Academy/Legacy Program is to provide children with the best possible opportunity to develop their soccer skills in an environment that truly understands and caters for their needs as both players and young people.

We have developed a model that will allow us to achieve our aim of developing technically excellent and innovative young players through a combination of both guidance and discovery in an environment that promotes exploration and emphasizes development.

We truly believe that it is crucial that young players are guided along their development pathway by creative coaches who provide age appropriate support which strives to meet the demands of each individual. Through following a curriculum designed specifically with this in mind our coaches promise to offer your child (regardless of ability) an experience that caters for their every need.

Age Group Technical Sylabus


Building upon all of the above, during the final stage of our Legacy Program, participants are challenged to express their comfort, creativity and innovativeness on the ball through continued exposure to a variety of conditioned 1v1 activities. As the concept of sharing begins to be understood by the players, passing & receiving exercises also now play a prominent role.
