We find, develop and promote players to play in the A-League.
We are passionate about developing young kiwi talent into professional footballers for our first team or even higher levels across the world.
We are equally passionate about helping every player fulfil their potential and becoming the best that they can be.
We are also aware that not every young player will make it to the professional ranks so we have created the right pathways and support structures to suit every player in the Academy.
We are experts in creating an environment that will allow players to gain the skills and confidence to improve, develop and reach their potential. A holistic approach is taken with each individual to help develop the technical, tactical, physical and psychological attributes using highly qualified and vastly experienced staff.
We also offer the best pastoral care possible, with a dedicated Player Welfare Manager and additional Player Mentor, to look after every players' off the field needs.
"NO WRITTEN WORD, NO SPOKEN PLEA, CAN TEACH OUR YOUTH WHAT THEY SHOULD BE. NOR ALL THE BOOKS ON ALL THE SHELVES, ITS WHAT THE COACHES ARE THEMSELVES."
