Skills Program

Program Overview

The program is a specialised, weekly program, running each school term, aimed at developing the skills of young footballers under the guidance of Newcastle Jets-trained coaches.

It’s open to all players, no matter their playing experience or skill level.

Open to kids aged 6 – 12, the Newcastle Jets Skills Program will see your child spend an hour with Newcastle Jets trained coaches each week, improving their football skills and confidence in a controlled and comfortable environment.

Program Structure

  • 8 weeks of high-quality coaching during
  • A full Newcastle Jets Skills Program kit, including a shirt, shorts, socks and a spray jacket.
  • Complimentary 2023/24 Junior Newcastle Jets Membership
  • Child’s name will be placed in a draw for the chance to win a signed Newcastle Jets jersey.
  • Opportunity to be identified for the Pre-Academy program.

In Term 4, 2023 we will be introducing a new and improved training kit which will have a closer resemblance to the kit our A-League Men’s and Women’s players wear. For all returning participants for the Term 4 program, this new kit will be slowly phased in and whilst encouraged it will not become compulsory until Term 1, 2024.

Recommended Ages

The program is open for kids aged 6 – 12 (turning 6 – 12 in 2023), and is open to both boys and girls who will train together throughout the entirety of the program.
