WE ARE PROUD TO UNVEIL MORNINGTON SOCCER CLUB’S ACADEMY
It represents a bold vision to develop aspiring and talented young players to reach an elite level of football.
Mornington Soccer Club has undergone a major cultural shift toward developing and providing homegrown talent a pathway into our senior teams and beyond. We boast one of the youngest and talented senior men and women’s squads in recent times, a testament to the new direction this club is headed.
Our Academy program is yet another step in that process, further emphasising the importance we place on our junior football program and our commitment to delivering elite-level training and development for our most talented and committed junior players.
- Adam Jamieson (FFA C Licence)
- David Chick (UEFA B Licence)
- Craig Davidson (FFA B Licence)
By ‘invitation’ players will be selected to join our elite academy program which will run separately and in addition to their standard team training programs. Supported by hand-picked Academy coaches, who collectively boast the highest footballing and developmental qualifications; our program will challenge our playing group. Fitness, Technique, Football IQ, Mental aptitude and, Health and well-being, are the cornerstones of this program which will give those selected; the best chance of fulfilling their talent and enjoying playing the game at the highest level.
International Tours & Competitions
A key part of our Academy player development is to ensure our players are stretched and challenged, so they can understand their achievements, development stage, and, what they need to continue to work on to reach the highest standards as footballers. As such our Academy teams will be attending overseas and interstate tournaments (s) to play other elite teams at the end of the normal season. We hope to have a number of Academy-generated fundraising events aimed at reducing the costs of player participation in these tournaments, such as flights and accommodation etc.
Fundraising for the Tour
To assist with the cost of travel and accommodation for our Tour to the UK (or NSW/QLD if travel restrictions remain). We have a number of fundraising initiatives throughout the year. We hope to raise enough funds to minimise the cost to parents and players by subsidising the cost of travel and accommodation.
The Mornington SC Academy program is the pinnacle of football development on the Peninsula and South East Melbourne, so become a Seagull player and give yourself the best opportunity for footballing success.
