Our Programs

SSFA Zone
Academy

The Sutherland Shire Football Association Zone Academy provides the opportunity for boys and girls who wish to continue their football development after the winter regular season has ended. Three convenient locations within the Sutherland Shire, which include the West Zone (Menai Area), South Zone (Engadine Area) and Central Zone (Kareela), will bring the game to you.

Program Information

The Zone Academy’s design is to ensure that players from all areas of the Sutherland Shire can gain easy access to professional coaching after the season has finished and prior to the commencement of the new Winter Season.  

Our experienced and accredited SSFA coaching staff will conduct sessions that focus on the four core skills of football and game awareness.

Squad sizes are dependent on age group; however, it will not exceed more than 12 players per coach.  

Players are introduced to the core skill of the session and its key elements and then exposed to small-sided game challenges. This type of session format fosters greater enjoyment for the game and facilitates accelerated learning, ball mastery, and improved decision-making.
