BRISBANE CITY FOOTBALL CLUB WELCOME MARIST COLLEGE ASHGROVE TO THE MYCITY FAMILY.
Brisbane City F.C are proud to announce an exciting partnership with Marist College Ashgrove, which will see the club and school unite to help develop the next generation of Marist College Ashgrove and Brisbane City football players.
The partnership was created with the goal of building on the already impressive work Marist have done with their players over the last few years. The program kicks off in Term 2 by introducing a Skills Acquisition Program (Years 6 and 7), which complements an already established Junior Skills Development program (Years 8 and 9).
Brisbane City FC will be providing Marist with the highest expertise of coaching staff. The Development Program will be overseen by Head of Football, Jamie Morgan (pictured). Jamie himself is a very experienced coach and will be guiding the football program and also taking helm of the First Eleven this year.
“The MyCity Program will not only create a professional environment for Marist students to improve their football, but support and mentor current Marist coaches by providing the best practices for coach development and education”, Jamie Morgan.
Nic de Jong, MyCity Program Director believes that this partnership is the start of bigger and better things to come for both the school and the club. “Brisbane City Football Club are eager to build a better, stronger football community around Brisbane. City wants to offer more opportunities for Marist Students to train and play at the highest level. This will lead to an improved program, with more players developing, which in time will produce a number of technical and intelligent players for the First Eleven’.
The program will roll out with a player centric focus but will also develop programs for player that graduate in the future. The plan is to introduce Old Boys to coaching or refereeing with the aim of giving back to the school and the Brisbane football community. Brisbane City Football Club is very excited to be involved with such a prestigious and ambitions school. The club is very much looking forward to the next term to roll out its Junior Development and Skills Acquisition programs.For those players that are keen to get involved, Brisbane City and Marist are currently working on providing extra sessions for ambitions players that are not currently participating in the current programs. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements from the Brisbane City Football club and Marist College Ashgrove Football Department.
