What are Development Programs
Futboltec Development programs currently take place at 3 venues- Smeaton Grange, Seven Hills and Fairfield. Our Development programs are designed for all players of all levels and our programs run in line with the school terms in 8 week blocks. We commence our 8 week programs 1 week in to each school term finishing 1 week prior to end of school term. Each of our registration periods open 14 days prior to the program commencement. Keep and eye on our training program tab for the next Training camp.
What are Development Training Camps
Our Development training camps are based in the school holidays bridging the gap between each of our Term programs. They are challenging but enjoyable days involving technical work and game play. It also serves as a great way to get to know our coaches and commence your work with Futboltec as its not a huge initial commitment and allows our coaches to assess new players inside a new environment. Keep and eye on our training program tab for the next Training camp.
What is the make up of each class and how many players per coach?
Our classes are designed to engage players of all ages and challenge them in a high quality, highly focused environment. Our sessions are always adjusted to benefit each individual so no player is ever training outside of their current level. We always adjust training groups based on individual development given each player is different and through our experience in this industry we assess accordingly. We generally have 10-15 players per coach in each of our development classes.
What is the registration process for development camps & programs?
Our Registration process is very simple and efficient. All players need to re-register for every term or camp we hold as it streamlines our registration process and makes it more efficient on the back end. When our registration period opens, all interested players are to follow the links on our Website to the relevant program / venue / class and fill out the associated form. The forms are automatically sent to our head office and clients will receive a “SUCCESS” message on the landing page prior to receiving an automated email to their entered email address (Please be aware this can sometimes arrive in Junk)
Following the successful submission an SMS will be forwarded 48 hours prior to the program commencement highlighting all final details.
IMPORTANT NOTE* When entering your details, Phone number and email address please be sure the details are correct as errors in number and email fields will make it impossible for us to communicate with you.
Once I’ve filled in a registration form, am I automatically in? Do I just turn up?
Once the form has been submitted, you have been successfully registered.
You DO NOT need to contact us to confirm anything. You will receive an SMS 48 hours prior to the event with final confirmation of program details.
How do I pay?
Payment can be made in cash on the first day or via EFT prior to the program commencement. It is important that payment is made prior to the first day. Given our classes fill very quickly, We unfortunately can not allow players to take part without payment on the first day. If you are absent on the first day without notice, we will then provide the spot to the next player on our waiting list.
Do you except Active Kids vouchers?
We do not accept Active kids vouchers.

What is the Full Time program and how can I be selected for this?
Our Full Time program is a 48 week program made up of selected committed players from around Sydney. We commenced our Full Time program in 2018 and have become stronger each year. All players in the FT program train 4-5 times per week from ages 9 – 12. Our U8 FT program is slightly less of a commitment with our plan being to prepare our U7-U8 players for Full Time Squads at U9. The players take part in 2 x Technical sessions per week, 2 x game training sessions with Internal games and we integrate 45 minutes per week of Injury prevention, balance, coordination and strength with Spinal and Sports Care.
Our FT players also take part in the new Academy League and compete in many major tournaments across the year. In 2018 each squad competed in over 50 x 30 minute matches, in 2019 our squads competed in over 70 x 30 minute matches through out the course of the season.
We trial once per year for our Full Time squads, with the trial being held in the month of September. We aim to develop and promote from with in our development programs prior to bringing external players in to our squads however, we are always watching football and looking for players who will fit in to our squads and the evident style of our play. You can express your interest here however please note each of our new intakes is conducted in September.
