Futsal/Football Academy: The Complete Combo
The Futsal/Football Academy aims to provide students with
unparalleled opportunities to develop their football and futsal ability to an
elite level. In order to do so we provide high-performance football coaching
and targeted support for balancing both academic and sporting career goals.
How It Works
The Futsal/Football Academy is a developmental program from
years 7-12 that gives players the chance to experience both forms of the game.
The curriculum focuses upon specific football and futsal skills, strategies and
other related elements such as nutrition, fitness, injury management and
prevention, goal setting, careers in sport, junior coaching licenses and
Accordingly, the futsal/football focus for each year is:
In order to ensure players have the best opportunity to
perform at an elite level, the academy provides personal support across all
areas of each players’ education.
This includes academic assistance, individualised skill and
conditioning plans, specialist speed and goal keeper coaching and a strong link
with a physiotherapy firm.
We follow the National Football Curriculum ‘Roadmap to
International Success’ created by Han Berger, National Technical Director for
Football Federation Australia (FFA). The FFA National Football Curriculum
provides the philosophy behind how we should play and illustrates practical
steps that bring the thinking to life in training sessions and matches.
The first version of the National Curriculum was introduced
in 2009 and has since been developed over the years in a way that resonates in
schools, clubs, academies and elite development pathways. The National Football
Curriculum intends to deliver an Australian playing and coaching philosophy
based on analysis of top football and scientific research, taking the specific
circumstances and characteristics of Australian football into consideration.
Students in the Futsal/Football Academy also have the
opportunity to be selected in our school teams. There are teams for both girls
and boys in all age groups, 12, 13, 14, 15 years and open age. All of these
teams compete regularly in numerous tournaments during the year in both futsal
and football with interstate travel opportunities also a possibility.
Links with other clubs
Our Futsal/Football Academy operates in partnership with
Robina Soccer Club, Mudgeeraba Soccer Club and Gold Coast United.
The access to credentialed coaches Robina State High
School’s Futsal/Football Academy offers is a strong contributing factor to
student development and performance. Having staff that are extremely
knowledgeable and experienced in the areas of futsal and football are an asset
to the program.
Students who are interested in applying for the
Futsal/Football Academy must be motivated and hardworking, love the game, and
be willing to improve themselves. We prefer students are affiliated with a club
outside of school. Playing at a representative level is also an advantage. 2020 Expression of Interest Applications due now.
