WELCOME TO WESTERN PHOENIX FOOTBALL CLUB
Western Phoenix FC was established in 2017 as the first development club/program in the region and entered into the Mid North Coast 'Northern Zone' in 2018. The club was created to provide equal opportunity for development that is affordable, inclusive, professional and effective, and operated by passionate football people, that is otherwise non existent in our region.
Ages start from under 6s (with 4 and a half being the absolute minimum) up to seniors, with teams being selected/organised as per development and biological maturation requirements/needs. We also maintain a 50/50 male to female player ratio across the club as part of our commitment to achieve gender equality in sporting opportunities.
FOOTBALL DEVELOPMENT PHILOSOPHY
We play a positive possession brand of football that is fluid and highly intensive. We like to showcase our style to be as enjoyable to watch as it is to play whilst maintaining positive attitudes and sportsmanship in all situations.
Western Phoenix provides a very clear style and system throughout our development program. In the younger ages (Minis up to 8/9) we work primarily on the basic techniques, skills and individual ability with a basic introduction to game play around 9. In the Junior Non-Competitive ages (9s to 11s) we gradually add more advanced technique, skills and game intelligence which takes us through to Junior Competitives (12s to 18s) where, whilst still building and developing individual abilities to a higher level, the education on game intelligence becomes more focused.
Following the development program to maturity our players will be educated with a higher level of game intelligence, technical ability and tactical awareness (football intelligence) which results in a higher level of football and a better transition to future professional environments, with Asia and Europe particularly suited.
COMMITMENT TO DEVELOPMENT
Western Phoenix's development program is open to all applicants that are 100% committed to their development within our program. Phoenix player's/applicant's need to have the attitude and commitment to their football, treat all others with respect and dignity, and maintain attendance and effort in all training and club activities. Failure to do so diminishes the positive impact on development and will affect future opportunities and/or position within the program.
