The Sky Blue Academy prides itself on development and this season was a season where that was front and centre. Across the 30 game season, they gave a first team debut to 21 different players under the age of 18 and a number of individuals were called up to junior national teams.

Overall, the Academy finished 6th in the NPL ladder, a great achievement for the young Sydney FC team, led by Jimmy van Weeren.
