BALLARAT FC ACADEMY

Have you ever watched the Brazilians, Spanish, Portuguese play football and wondered…. What’s the secret? Well from a young age, they are encouraged to exhibit -creativity, speed, running of the ball, ‘deadly finishing’ and dribbling skills.

The Ballarat FC Academy offers this opportunity!!!

As a sport, Futsal has for years been treated as a training game for football. Now with Futsal being treated as a proper sport with World Cups and regular tournaments and with professional leagues through out the world, more people are wishing to play it seriously. Within Victoria players involved in the academy will see an exceptional improvement to not only their Futsal but their football also due to specific skills training at the highest level.
