We continue to find ways to make our Club attractive to incoming players, as a whole of club approach to our coaching standards. The Academy provides Gosford City FC with the chance to improve the FFA 4 Core Skills of the male and female junior players within our Under 8 to 12 age groups, but also to assist our coaches of these age groups.”
