The CCAS, together with the AFL NSW/ACT, have compiled an elite junior development program, the program includes on field and off field components. The major emphasis is on individual skill development.
AFL Hunter / Central Coast Manager, Simon Smyth, is very excited about the program “The athletes selected will gain a real competitive advantage over other boys their age. Four (4) months of skill and game sense training, as well as gym, pool and education sessions will give these athletes an invaluable kick start to the up coming representative season. I have seen first hand, how a summer program can pave the way for athletes to reach higher levels of competition, and I’m looking forward to watching this next group take those steps”
The Central Coast Academy of Sport AFL Program is open to both current Central Coast AFL players, and alternate athletes, who excel in their chosen sport through their athletic capabilities.
The CCAS will select a squad of up to sixteen (16) athletes, who are of the highest standard regardless of position. Selectors will focus on individual athletes rather than a team. A selected panel of CCAS coaches and administrators reviews each applicant with a representative from AFL NSW / ACT being consulted regarding the suitability of athletes.
The CCAS decision regarding athlete selection is based on objective and subjective measures and the CCAS holds final responsibility for the selection of athlete’s into this high performance program.
The CCAS AFL program is designed to up-skill athletes and assist them in progressing to higher representation in the sport of AFL. The program operates during the AFL ‘off season’ and athletes progress against the FTEM Model of athlete development, Foundation, Talent, Elite and Mastery.
To be eligible for selection into the CCAS AFL program scholarship athletes must be:
– Female, turning 12, 13 or 14 in the current calendar year;
– Currently residing with the Local Government Area (LGA) of the Central Coast Council;
– Excel in either AFL or another sport;
– Be a driven athlete, who is dedicated to improvement and committed to every session.
