Believe it or not, the end of the club football season is fast approaching and the 2016 – 2017 Olé Football Academy Summer Programme is just around the corner. We are searching for ambitious Wellington based footballers born between 2002 – 2008 keen on taking their football skills to another level over the summer months.
We are excited to announce this year’s Summer Programme will see the merger of two Wellington based football academies. The Fusion School of Football (Craig Candy and Co.) will be joining forces with The Olé Football Academy to offer an unprecedented elite training opportunity and environment to young kiwi footballers.
The Olé Football Academy Summer Programme is a football development initiative aimed at developing the elite player’s core football skills over the course of a six month calendar and curriculum.
Players from all clubs are welcome to participate and applications will be accepted up until September 4th, 2016. Trial and schedule dates are being updated at the follow links.
All players interested in the summer programme, current academy players included, must fill out an application form to be eligible for participation.
The summer programme is open to players born between 2002 and 2008 with possible exceptions taken into consideration. Players accepted into the summer programme will be divided into 3 separate training groups.
- Young Olé 1: 2002 – 2003 Birthdates
- Young Olé 2: 2004 – 2005 Birthdates
- Young Olé 3: 2006 – 2008 Birthdates
The groups will be based on a combination of age and the discretion of Olé professional training staff and are subject to change throughout the programme. Young Olé 1 and Young Olé 2 will train 3 – 4 times per week. The Young Olé 3 group, overseen by Craig Candy, will train 2 times per week.
The programme will run between Sunday 18th September 2016 and Sunday 19th February 2017. Appropriate football breaks will be scheduled during the Term 3 school break (1 week) and the Christmas holidays (4 weeks).
Costs for the Summer Programme are as follows:
- Young Olé 1: $950
- Young Olé 2: $900
- Young Olé 3: $600
This cost does not include training kit which will be available for purchase through Football Central at an additional cost. Current academy players are allowed to wear Olé Football Academy kit from the current club season.
