FC11 Announces Exciting New Partnership and Educational Campus for Northern NSW

August 16th, 2015

FC11 is excited to announce a new partnership with Northern NSW Football.

This partnership will allow student-athletes in the Newcastle and Hunter Region and beyond, to train and study in a full-time high performance environment whilst still playing with their club.

The new campus will be located at the Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility (LMRFF) at Speers Point, which provides the students with state of the art facilities including twelve synthetic 5-a-side fields, three full size football pitches, including two fully synthetic and one turf, as well as educational facilities.

FC11 will implement the Diploma of Sport Development (SIS50612) for Football which has been designed in consultation with football industry experts and TAFE NSW – Sydney Institute (90003) to meet the demands of modern day football and its associated career opportunities.

The program merges sports science, coaching methodology, high performance training, professional and academic development, business theory, and mentoring by professional athletes.

The Diploma is a full time program and is intended for students that have completed their school studies and are looking to pursue a career in football off the field, or in order to gain entry into a related degree level course.

‘This is an exciting complement to the Speers Point facility,’ Northern NSW Football CEO David Eland said. ‘We already have world class facilities here for players to train and play on and now we have the vehicle to provide additional educational opportunities to players from across Northern NSW who wish to gain accreditation in areas of sports science and other aspects of football academic development.’

The 2016 intake applications are now open for the Hunter Campus at LMRFF with study commencing in February, 2016.
