For two years, Sydney FC and Cranbrook School have forged a strong partnership which will be enhanced further in 2017 with the introduction of the first jointly run co-curricular football program.
Beginning in term one next year, the program at Cranbrook Junior School for the years 1-6 students will be run by Sydney FC and their experienced community football coaches, providing extra football training from 3pm until 4pm once per week for all participating students.
Sydney FC run their holiday clinics at Cranbrook Junior School during every school holiday period, and as part of the ongoing partnership Sydney FC offer the school various initiatives for the benefit of the students, teachers and the football program at the school.
Community Football Manager Paul Reid said he was very excited to be able to expand on these initiatives and is looking forward to Sydney FC running the co-curricular football program at the school in the New Year.
“Sydney FC and Cranbrook School have been working closely together for two years and it is great that the club will be running the school’s co-curricular football program from Term 1 next year,” Reid said.
“It will be hugely beneficial to the students at the school and will help with the development of the boys. The boys will naturally improve their skills throughout the program but we have a big focus on players having fun and developing a love for playing football.
“As football is a team sport, if you create a friendly learning environment, this will have a big impact on the boys now that they can take into the future.”
