Skills Acquisition Workshops

This programme is to help our young players with their skill development specifically without a competitive environment. Jessine Bonzas coordinates the programme through Football West.

Female Football Academy (endorsed by Football West)
Carolina Morace and Nicola Williams have teamed up to provide coaches with upskilling and players with extra technique development. This is a user pays system conducted after school hours). Carolina is a former National player and coach. Nicola Williams has worked with our Football West and National Matildas development programmes for numerous years. They have been working with club over the past 18 months or so. You can contact them directly on info@femalefootballacademy.com.au.

Leadership Project
The WSC is working with the Football West Board to encourage senior and experienced players to become leaders, coaches and mentors in our game. If you have some names you can put forward with contact information, please email socceron@womensoccer.com.au or post to womensoccer.com.au on facebook. You can name retired players, coaches and referees. Anyone who you think would make a great leader, mentor and role model to help our game progress. We will then work with that person to up-skill, support and encourage them to be a part of our game moving forward.
