Trial Information

Do you want to challenge yourself against some of the strongest teams and players from all over Sydney?

If you’re up for the challenge, look no further than The Football Factory Academy.

Registrations to trial are currently open for The Football Factory Academy. Before the start of a season we invite any and all players who want to take their football to the next level to trial for our Academy teams.

Following the 2024 Academy Preseason, we look to the Academy Winter Season IFA competition starting in May of 2024. Many of our teams in the Preseason have been showcasing their exemplary skills & abilities throughout the season and in order to provide both our returning and new players a challenge in-line with their skills we will be running teams in the Winter Season competition for those born in and between 2009 and 2017 (ages 6 to 14).

If you would like to trial for our Academy, or check trial dates, times and locations, please do so using the register to trial button above. As always, you can subscribe to our newsletter to make sure you don’t miss out on announcements including future Academy trial dates.

Our Academy gives players a platform to challenge themselves against quality opposition. If you are a current or previous Development Squad member we suggest the Academy as the next step in advancing your football development. If you’re looking to improve your child’s football skills in preparation for the Academy, we recommend our Development Squad programs.
