What different about us

The purpose of the academy is an off spin of the Albany United FC curriculum. In order to meet the curriculum outcomes we need to provide the opportunity to upskill players outside of the team coaching environment.

Our learning environment has reduced numbers so players get more one-one time from the coach. And regardless of how it grows, this will always be the focus.

Our academy is cheaper than most operating presently by an average of 40% lower.

The quality of coaching is at the same level of other academies.

All coaches are vetted to ensure parents are comfortable with the staff when leaving their children with us.

The programme is overseen by the Clubs Director of Football to ensure it links back to the club, its purpose and vision and against the curriculum.
