Private Soccer Coaching in New South Wales
How Australia & New Zealand’s premier online soccer coaching platform can make a difference to your training experience.
Posted 2 years ago
New South Wales (NSW) always ranks as a prominent sporting state of Australia with a rich cultural history of both football & rugby, since football was established in the Hunter Valley region at the start of last century.
Soccer hasn't grown as much as some of the other football codes in the state in popularity fan-wise but despite this has grown to the largest sport in the state in terms of participation numbers. NSW remains the home of Australian soccer with the FFA headquartered in Sydney. The city also boasts some infrastructural marvels with the likes of the ANZ Stadium, the Bankwest Stadium & the Netstrata Jubilee Stadium.
Recent trends also point to the gradual rise of soccer in NSW. At present, the sport can lay claim to having over 350,000 registered soccer players & over 21,000 registered coaches. The elite talent pool is segregated over four divisions of the NPL for men & two divisions for women, in addition to multiple youth level competitions. With approximately 70 associations comprising over 900 clubs, NSW also possesses a vast network of social soccer which makes the sport easily accessible to the local community.
While there is no debating that soccer in NSW is gaining a reputation as a prominent social & professional sport, there are still certain obstacles that hinder the overall potential for its growth.
BARRIERS TO BE OVERCOME
The cost barrier is one that is often brought up in conversations relating to participation in soccer. On an average, NPL “elite” pathway soccer players have to shell out an estimated $2,200 as part of the registration process, while the fee for amateur players looking to play soccer socially ranges between $200 to $300.
In addition to this, the pathway for players seeking to make it to the elite levels is extremely competitive. On an average, out of 230,000 registered players in NSW, only 12,000 manage to make the step up to elite levels of competition. This could be put down to a range of factors, with easy access to proper coaching & training sessions being a major driving force behind players’ motivation to participate in the sport.
To illustrate this point, we could use 1-on-1 training resources as an example. 1-on-1 training is a highly underrated form of coaching used by players to improve their skills & conditioning while attempting to gain a personal insight into improving their overall game. A young soccer player seeking to make it to the elite levels of the sport in NSW has very few visible options in this regard.
The ‘skill acquisition program’ instilled by Football NSW provides 1-on-1 training cycles but this is only offered to players between the ages of 9 to 13 years, this only focuses on the 1on1 skill component, but not actually training in a 1on1 situation with a coach. While it is a great tool to introduce youngsters to the sport & fast track their development, the benefit of 1-on-1 training is applicable to players of any age group. On the face of the current setup, there is little evidence to show that players can gain access to such personalized training sessions on their own, unless they are regular members of a soccer club.
