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, we have a number of spaces available in our Academy. Registrations to trial are now open for The Football Factory Academy’s 2021 Winter season.

Our Academy competes against other Academies from all over Sydney in the Premier Academy League competition (PAL). For the 2021 Winter season, the PAL competition will run from April to September, with matches played on Sundays at Macquarie University Fields (where Sydney FC train).

Trials for the 2021 Academy Winter teams are being held these Easter Holidays in April. All prospective Academy players are asked to attend trial sessions for selection into the Academy team, to compete in the Premier Academy League.

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.

Trial Schedule for the 2021 Winter Season

Please note that all trials are indoors at The Football Factory (Unit 2, 8 Aquatic Dr, Frenchs Forest)
