At ESAFC we run four pathways which encompass both our training sessions and games

  1. In-House: Games designed for players aged 5 - 14 who are new to football or looking to play socially without the added commitment of training. Players register as individuals through our clubhub system, and then teams are allocated by our volunteer grade coordinators. Games are played on Saturday mornings against other ESAFC teams for the duration of the winter football season.

 

  1. Pathway Programme: Training designed for in-house players 9th Grade and up who would like to take part in training each week, without the added commitment of additional games. The pathway programme offers one session per week for players taking part in our in-house games, or who simply want to register for training throughout the year. Pathway players will train with our development programme players alongside professional ESAFC coaches but will not be selected into AFF development teams. 

 

  1. Development Programme: Training designed for players 9th Grade and up who are starting to get into their football and want to train and play with their team each week. Development players must commit to two trainings over the Winter season and will compete with their team, either up a grade in the ESAFC In-House leagues or in an AFF competition depending on their age. Each training session is run by a qualified ESAFC coach under the same philosophies found in our Academy programme. Teams are selected during Term 1 Preseason training, as we feel this gives the coaches a better idea of players and where they are best fit within their own development.

 

  1. ESAFC Academy: Training designed for players 9th Grade and up who are committed to the game and their individual development, wanting to train and play at the highest of their ability. Over the Winter season, Academy players must commit to three training sessions per week as well as playing with their team each weekend in an AFF/NRF competition. Each training session is run by a professional coach under NZF Skill Centre/Talent Development Programme guidelines. Teams are selected during Term 1 Preseason training, as we feel this gives the coaches a better idea of players and where they are best fit within their own development.

Term 4 Training 2021

 

ESAFC SUMMER TRAINING HUB

 

Programme designed for players 9th grade and up who have been training and playing at Academy level throughout the 2021 season, or have the desire and commitment to become one of these players in 2022.

Please register for your child’s 2021 grade through the SUMMER CLUBHUB.

These games-based sessions will allow players to work on their technical skills whilst spending lots of time on the ball. Players will register for their “Hub” but will be split by coaches depending on age and ability before each session begins, allowing for larger player numbers and the ability for coaches to create a more competitive games-based environment.

Players will work on technical aspects such as juggling, striking the ball, and passing through different rondo variations with emphasis on leaving plenty of time for small-sided games during each session.

Players may also be offered the opportunity to compete in external games throughout the term as they have throughout the winter season. This will be dependent on the federation and availability of other clubs.

Players should be available to commit to two sessions per week, with the option of a third session available for those not taking part in other summer sports.

 

Teams in certain grades will also have the opportunity to take part in weekend games, depending on player and opposition availability, at the following dates: 30th October, 13th November, 27th November, and 11th December.

 

Two sessions per week: $175

Optional third session: $100
