The club are delighted to confirm our U13-U16 NPL sides will be competing within the top level of youth football in Queensland for the remainder of the 2020 season.
The NPL Youth competition has been split into two divisions, Academy and Development. The Fire are the only club on the Sunshine Coast that will be competing within the Academy league.
Our Technical Director Melvyn Wilkes was delighted with the confirmation:
“It is really pleasing to see that our Junior NPL program has been recognised for their level of performance and our level of operation in which we have been working extremely hard to implement.
Our player services program which includes Strength & Conditioning, Performance Analysis, Sports Science support and much more is testament to the level we are now operating at to ensure our Youth program is placed amongst the very best in Queensland.
The above sits perfectly in with our Full-Time youth program in which we commence in July, which is the ONLY one at this stage in Australia. Playing in the Academy league allows our players to test themselves against the clubs we have been accustomed to playing prior to the competition restructure.”
