Programs

Football is played at all levels, from beginners all the way to FIFA World Cups for men and women.

For players looking to advance, and for their families, sometimes the many different program names and competition names can seem like an impenetrable mystery – it is hard to know where you can get to and how.
For that reason, we have mapped out the different programs and levels for the male and female talented player development pathways below so that people have some idea where they can go.

We’ve highlighted the areas where we run programs, and in areas where we don’t run programs but a nearby FNSW club does, we will list them so you know where you can look.

For male players, ESFA runs SAP  – below are listed the other clubs based in the Eastern Suburbs and the competitions they are in:

  • Hakoah Sydney City East: National Premier League Men’s 2, National Premier League Youth (Tier 1)
  • Sydney University: National Premier League Men’s 3, National Premier League Youth (Tier 2)
  • Dunbar Rovers NPL: National Premier League Men’s 3, National Premier League Youth (Tier 2)
  • UNSW FC: National Premier Leagues Men’s 4, National Premier League Youth (Tier 2)

For female players, ESFA runs SAP and Girls’ SAP. Below are listed the other clubs based in the Eastern Suburbs and the competitions they are in:

We hope this takes away a little bit of the mystery and enables players and their families to have a better idea of where they are placed within the football development pathway.
