Talented football program (TFP)

Talented football program (TFP)

The Talented Football Program is the longest standing Gifted and Talented Program at Bossley Park High School beginning in the early 1990’s. The program has changed over the years, to the point where Football is offered as a subject during sport and PDHPE elective classes with students learning in a practical and theory setting. The program provides a holistic approach to education for student athletes and is designed to provide additional training opportunities to support young players motivated to reach their potential while at the same time pursuing a first class education. The program aims to help provide more opportunities to players, develop additional player pathways and support the long-term development of young players.

In 2016, Bossley Park High School became an official member of the Sydney FC Academy School Network. The school based program is fully aligned with the vision and philosophy of Sydney FC and delivered by highly qualified coaches in a full time year round training environment. This partnership continues to grow stronger and provide all of our Talented Football Players an avenue into an elite Academy program and access to A-League, NYL and W-League coaches at the various Sydney FC events the school attends.

The program includes:

·         Sydney FC Academy affiliated coaching

·         Sydney FC training kit

·         Match Day Visits

·         Training ground visits

·         Talent ID days and training matches against Sydney FC Academy teams

·         Digital player development platform

·         Injury prevention program

·         Event Management training

·         Referee accreditation

·         Coaching accreditation

·         Performance analysis

The Talented Football Program at Bossley Park High School has a rich and proud tradition of developing players that have represented their country and have gained professional playing contracts in Australia and abroad. The Talented Football staff work tirelessly to develop our current and future students, in achieving their dreams of playing professional football.
