Developing Elite Footballers

Most players not involved in an A-League Academy will ultimately have 1 to 2 team sessions less per week than those within those programmes. Depending on the players' club programme, this can equate to 40-80 sessions less over the course of a year.

We Want To Bridge The Gap

With over 1000 professional games between us, spanning 9 countries, and a multitude of coaching experience, we know the standard required to become elite footballers.

Who Are We

We are a team of highly experienced Newcastle football professionals, each with a unique set of skills and knowledge. Our team is comprised of four former professional football players who understand the training and dedication needed to play at an elite level. With decades of experience we are proud to be able to guide aspiring footballers and offer the right platform to help elite players progress and reach their full potential. We understand the pressures that parents and players experience and we have a clear structure that sets out our high expectations in an encouraging environment, our coaches provide an elite level of support, advice and guidance. We have a genuine love for the game and strive to offer the highest quality of coaching where players can develop not just their footballing skills, but their character too.
