2021-22 Academy Season
September 13th - March 9th
The Academy is the heart of our club, providing professional, age-appropriate soccer coaching to youth aged 5 to 9 years old. We welcome all new and experienced soccer players into the academy.
We create team environments in which every player can be successful so players will be placed into a team with others of similar age and ability.
*We have added a Grays Park training location on Monday nights. See below for details.
Your child's enrolment in the VRFC Academy will include:
1) Two training sessions per week
Our team training will take place on Monday evenings at Connaught Park and Grays Park. Our inter-club game night will take place on Wednesday evenings at Connaught Park. This will involve non-competitive games in which we will play VRFC teams against one another to put our learnings into practice.
Our teams will train at the following times:
*Grays Park Location - Mondays only:
3.30pm - 4.30pm for our U6 & U7 (2016 & 2015) teams.
Connaught Park Location - Mondays and Wednesdays:
4.00pm - 5.00pm for our U6 & U7 (2016 & 2015) teams.
5.15pm - 6.15pm for our U6, U7, U8, U9, U10 (2016, 2015 2014, 2013 & 2012) teams.
Training times may be added or modified subject to number of enrolments.
There will be a total of 42 training sessions over the season. The season will run from September 13th-March 9th.
2) Top quality coaching from a certified team
To ensure our players are receiving quality training, our team of youthful coaches hold UEFA qualifications. They are experienced in coaching ages 2-19 across the world including the UK, China, USA and Canada.
Your player will stay with the same coaching team through the season so they can bond with their coach and form authentic connections with their teammates.
3) The KIT
Full VRFC kit including jersey, shorts and socks.
At VRFC, image is important to us. We want our players to feel pride when they wear their jersey which is why we have chosen a professional brand and design.
Gold represents prosperity and success. It is inherently optimistic, uplifting and enlightening. It inspires and gives us the confidence to reach our potential.
The Academy fee is $680.00. This can be paid either in full or in monthly installments over the course of the season following a $120.00 kit deposit to secure a spot.
