CCMA and CCFA Academy trials

posted 7 Oct 2015, 21:31 by Avoca FC   [ updated 7 Oct 2015, 21:31 ]
Central Coast Football and Central Coast Mariners would like to announce an exciting new player pathway tying CCMA and CCFA together.

The Central Coast Mariners Academy will participate in FNSW administered competitions and provide players with one pathway on the Coast. The Central Coast Football Academy will be the under pinning program to the CCMA program.

This breakthrough now shows all players on the coast that by key stakeholders working together children on the Coast will be now given every opportunity to develop in a common program.

Trials for both academies will be run jointly to make it more convenient for families on the coast. Representatives from both academies will be overseeing these trials and successful players will be selected to join a program.

CCMA have now organised an information briefing session at Central Coast Leagues Club for all interested parties about the new Mariners Academy on this Friday, October 9th at 6:30PM in the Parkview Room Upper Level. Entry is through front door up elevator near the Scenic lounge.

The speakers at our meeting will be key CCM staff, Peter Storrie, John Hutchinson, Kathryn Duncan and Ken Schembri CCM Academy Director.

As a result of this arrangement there has been some changes to trial times originally advertised.
