The (FMG) International Football Academy is for all players between the ages of 5-14 years. The program is designed to cater for players of all abilities and all players train at the appropriate standard for their skill level.  We believe that the program we offer is superior to any other similar system in Australia. 

At FMG we maintain a significant focus on coordination and technique. This allows the players to develop their fundamental skills before they are put under pressure of playing full sized games.

We also bring professionalism to the sport and encourage players at a young age to take pride in themselves.  We encourage them to be professional in their dress and appearance as well as what they say and do.

With experienced coaching staff providing close supervision and guidance, all participants gain dramatic improvements in their game. You find that at the majority of clubs the coaches are parents who are trying to do their best but have not been given the resources needed to improve the players. The FMG Academy will give your child the opportunity to be professionally coached all season long as well as being able to go and play for your club. We have plenty of successes at the academy so anytime you see a player wearing an academy uniform don’t hesitate to ask them what they think.

Loganholme Academy:

FMG Football Academy has recommenced at the Loganholme Soccer Club.  This year we will recommence our elite junior program for U9 & 10’s so if your child has extra ability this would be a perfect opportunity to gain the professional coaching these players need to reach their full potential.  FMG excellence squad will also participate in development games against similar programs within the metropolitan area to assist with player development.

The Academy has been fully endorsed by the Loganholme Soccer Club and they recommend that all juniors at Loganholme participate where possible.

The Coaches:

All coaches working for FMG hold a minimum qualification of a Senior License. They have also undertaken the intensive FMG training program so they are well positioned to give your child the best chance of reaching their goals.
