State Teams

Football NSW State Teams form an integral part of the National Player Pathway.

Players selected will have the opportunity to compete at the National Youth Championships and be exposed to both the highest level of football available and the expertise of Football NSW/FA State and National selectors and coaches.

From these tournaments, players will be identified for future selection into Football NSW Elite Programs, National Training Centres, National Youth Teams, A-League Youth Teams, and A-League Teams etc.

Players who are involved in the State Team process should value the opportunity to train and develop amongst the best players in NSW under the guidance of experienced and qualified State Team coaches.

Key Principles

  • Develop and deliver a professional program and service to elite athletes and coaches within NSW.
  • Assist identified athletes and coaches to achieve excellence and success at State, National and International level.
  • Support targeted athletes in their preparation for State and National Championships.
  • Utilise the National Curriculum to shape players performance.
