Academy League 1 & 2 Boys & Girls (U9-U12)

The Academy League Program provides a clear, professionally delivered development opportunity for talented young footballers in QLD which underpins the National Premier Leagues QLD Men's and Women's competitions.

Academy League Trials are generally held in October for the following season.


The Academy league program is a key component of Football Federation Australia’s national curriculum.

Academy League is designed to perfect and accelerate the skill development of identified players between the critical ages of 9 to 12 (Boys & Girls). This is the age group universally acknowledged to be the optimal mental and physical phase in which children are able to learn motor skills.

The aim is to provide the necessary technical ‘tools’ to be able to play the game at the highest possible level with a focus on functional game skills, with an immediate skills transfer into positioning and small-sided games being an absolute requirement.


Football Queensland’s High Performance initiatives aim to deliver professional, integrated and clear elite development pathways and programs for players and coaches throughout Queensland complemented with National and International competition which produce representative players and coaches. Our State Technical Director, three QAS coaches, and Head Coach of the Skills Acquisition Program are available to visit zones and provide expert professional development in relation to the Football Federation Australia curriculum.

Football Queensland’s High Performance Department is charged with the responsibility of implementing the National Curriculum and working with a range of stakeholders such as Member Zones and Clubs to ensure that there is a steady stream of players and coaches who have the ability to represent the region on the global stage and inspire future generations of participants. The value of the sport’s biggest revenue stream broadcast rights will be significantly influenced by the technical ability of players generated by programs conducted by member federations such as Football Queensland.
