For 10th Grade players ESAFC offers three training options, all run in alignment with NZ Football Skill Centre standards – this includes professional coaches with age and stage appropriate development methods. All programmes are run under the guidance of our Junior & Girls Directors of Football.

9th Grade Development players compete up one grade in the ESAFC in-house competitions. Academy teams compete in NRF competitions on Saturday mornings against other clubs. Pathway players will only be selected into these teams at the Club’s discretion, under special circumstance.
