The Football NSW Institute (FNSWI) delivers best practice development opportunities for the State’s most talented players.
What is the Football NSW Institute?
2013 was the inaugural year for the FNSWI. The Institute unified the previous Skilleroos, New South Wales Institute of Sport and Skill Acquisition Programs for boys and girls into a clearly defined structure, aligned to the Football Federation Australia Integrated Talented Player Pathway. Since 2016 the FNSWI has focused on the talented player pathway for girls.

A word from Football NSW Technical
Former Socceroos Alex Tobin and Ante Juric believe the FNSWI program plays a crucial role in the development of promising young footballers.
The Football NSW Institute is the official elite development program for girls U13 to U17 and it provides talented footballers a training environment, consistent with FFA policies, that delivers the highest standard of coaching and best platform for those players to realise their personal ambitions of becoming professional footballers and representing their country.
