The Elite Football Academy (EFA) is the result of 15+ years of coaching experience both locally and abroad. Coupled with extensive research across Sports Science and Performance Analysis, the EFA curriculum addresses the current gaps Australian players possess when looking to move into professional football.

The ‘EFA 10 Commandments’ form the basis of this curriculum designed by Director and highly accredited coach, Ivan Jolic. These are developed in a safe, small group setting. This ensures every player receives the attention and learning opportunity they deserve with our highly qualified coaches. The sessions are extremely high in intensity and well beyond the standards across Australia, resulting in a technically more proficient, resilient footballer.

Each session also comprises a conditioning element ensuring the player is physically prepared for the demands of the modern game.

What – An introduction to high intensity “TEAM” training sessions focussed on fundamental game skills based on the EFA 10 Commandments. This camp will also introduce basics in ‘Developing a Team Playing Style’.
