Sydney FC has been running a Academy Training Program for four years and is one of the most successful scouting and training mechanisms the club employs to select future Boys & Girls Academy squads from U13.
The 2022/23 program is open for applications from talented 10, 11, 12 year old boys, and 12, 13, 14 year old girls who are currently part of SAP, GSAP or Development squads at their local association or NPL club.
