Academy Training Program

Sydney FC’s Academy Training Program helps improve players and also offers a key opportunity for our coaches to scout and select talent for our Academy squads from U13.

This season six players joining our U13 Boys Academy squad came through our Academy Training Program (ATP).

The 2023/24 program is open for applications from talented 10, 11, 12-year-old boys who are currently part of SAP or Development squads at their local association or NPL club.
