The V Squad Football Academy is a two year program designed to provide talented U12-U14 footballers a high performance training and learning environment.

We combine high-performance on field training, off-field personal development and ongoing mentoring to help talented junior footballers reach your full potential in sport, at school and in your community.


Personal Development

Through face-to-face seminars delivered at the April and September Camps and online resources we help our athletes develop key off field skills that will help balance school, sport and life.

We provide feedback, tasks and challenges, to be completed online, between camps and training sessions to advance squad members through the program and to hit key learning outcomes.


Football Development

Our coaches utilise their teaching and coaching backgrounds to breakdown the concepts, drills and activities from the elite AFL pathway. The goal is to advance each player's fundamental skills, decision making and game understanding, while preparing them for the challenges of NAB League (U18s) football.


Player Welfare

Our player welfare program involves weekly contact to assist and manage any on or off field issue that might be affecting V Squad members. This includes injury management and resilience and wellbeing, as well as reinforcing and supporting our V Squad Personal Development Program thoughout the year.



We are always available as a personal resource for all members. We are in contact with past and present V Squad members to work through any questions, queries or issues they face on and off the field. These can include school or club issues, navigating the NAB League system or advice on overcoming personal challenges.
