About the "Ricki Herbert Football Academy"
The purpose of the "Ricki Herbert Football Academy" is to provide affordable, high value Football Coaching to all children aged from 4 to 17. As these players progress, we will continue to provide a coaching platform for all children keen on their football.
We will also start to identify those we believe can progress to the highest levels and facilitate a pathway that best suits their ability and goals.
At 15 years and on, we have a major focus on providing these players with opportuntiies to really showcase their talent and advance their football careers.
In support of this, we have launched a new programme ("Football Development Programme") for players aged between 14-17, that will allow for a technical and tactical perspective of football and assist in players understanding of their next challenges in the football world.
