Students will participate in 4 1x hour practical coaching sessions during the school week.

Students will also supplement this with practice matches, participation in the Champion Schools Soccer Program, club training and weekend matches.

Academic Progress

Academic progress is an important part of the Safety Bay Senior High School Football Academy.

Students are expected to work consistently across all subjects to maintain a high standard of academic performance, behaviour and attendance.

Failure to do so may result in the student being asked to leave the program.

Facilities and Equipment

The Safety Bay Senior High School Specialist Football Program has some of the State’s best training facilities.

Our FIFA approved artificial turf facility encourages small sided football and we as also have a purpose-built fitness centre for off field development.

We also have an extensive range of speed, agility and quickness equipment. Players have access to indoor soccer facilities and high-quality training equipment.

Champion Schools Competition

All of our players get the chance to sharpen their skills in the School Sport WA Champion Schools Competition during Terms 2 and 3. This fun competition sees us compete against other Department of Education Specialist Football program teams as well as teams from high schools across the South Metropolitan area.
