Eastern Suburbs FC prides itself on its continual improvement, development opportunities and management  strategies, enabling it to be a truly integrated football club. The Club currently has over 170 female players, accounting for 30% of the overall club membership.

The National Premier Leagues Program Women’s (NPLW) is an integral component of East’s footballing  culture,  and provides many opportunities for aspiring young players as part of FFA’s Elite Player Pathway. The NPLW has enabled licenced clubs to establish much more organised and professional coaching structures and lifted the standards with respect to the expectations, technical ability and tactical awareness of the players within the system.

Several players over the past three seasons have advanced into Football Queensland (FQ) State Representative Programs and been identified into the FQ development squads with Roar’s NTC program.

Supporting the NPLW is a ‘Feeder Program’ which concentrates on the development of individual ‘Skills’. SAP (Skill Acquisition Program) is another FFA initiative concentrating on players within Skill Acquisition age groups (9-13) and bases itself on the ‘4 Core skills’ (First Touch, 1 v 1’s, Striking the Ball & Running with the Ball).

Easts have been fortunate in meeting with the compliance requirements of SAP and will run the program for identified Under 9/10 and 10/11 year old girls in 2019. These players work at honing their skills and have opportunity for entry into the NPLW pathway after SAP. Please follow this link to the SAP application form:  https://goo.gl/forms/1bmmsbPYIfqp29H52

Whilst the NPLW and SAP are the elite pathway players, every effort is made with our Eastern Suburbs FC coaching network to provide as many additional opportunities for young female players just outside of the player pathway (players develop at different rates). In conjunction with SAP we also run a Skills Development Program to accommodate late bloomers and enable them to learn more about the game in a fun, game centred environment.
