NZP YoungHeart Manawatu Football Academy 

As part of the player development pathway, we are offering the opportunity for local footballers to join the NZP YoungHeart Manawatu Football Academy.

The Academy is aimed to work alongside and complementary to Central Football’s Representative Programme.  Training times and workloads will be co-ordinated with Representative Squad training, matches and tournaments and are targeted towards enhancing the opportunities that currently exist.

The Academy will operate at NZP YoungHeart Manawatu’s training base, The Sport and Rugby Institute, Massey, and will be planned, managed and delivered by NZP YoungHeart Manawatu Staff Coaches and players.

We believe the Academy will help young players grow and develop, maximising their potential. 

The programme will operate from 4.45 pm to 6.15 pm on Tuesdays commencing on Tuesday 27th November.  The programme will operate for 5 sessions prior to Christmas, and then recommence in Term 1.  The programme is planned to operate throughout the year, supporting other footballing opportunities that exist within schools and clubs as well as the Representative Programme.

The Player Development Pathway is clear, and NZP YoungHeart Manawatu fully support and endorse that pathway.  We work alongside and with Central Football to ensure that pathway is the best possible.  If your Representative Squad training clashes with the NZP YoungHeart Manawatu Academy, you must attend the Representative Squad practice.

The Academy will cost:

 $75.50 for the Pre-Christmas period

$139.50 for term 1

All participants receive an NZP YoungHeart Manawatu Academy training shirt.
