Q. What exactly is the Mongo-Football Development Program?

It is a long-term, integrated program to develop players on a systematic work basis (skills) rather than preparing a team for weekend competition. Aimed at players U6 - U16, qualified paid coaches will follow the national curriculum to get the most out of players to maximise their potential. The ultimate goal of the program is to provide players with genuine pathways for local, national and international football opportunities including USA College Sports Scholarships.

Q. What is the timetable?

The program runs for 4 terms in a year making it a full year program. Depending on the age group, players will train 2, 3 or 4 evenings per week plus sometimes enjoy "game play" within their age category at the organisers discretion. There is also dedicated goalkeeper sessions for certain age groups.

Q. What about goalkeepers?

A unique part of the program relates to goalkeeper training. Goalkeepers will receive dedicated training per week.

Q. Do we get uniforms?

Q. Do I have to pay upfront?

Your first payment consists of your first term's training fee and your registration/kit fee, the second term fee is added to your child's account midway through term. Your My Page account will provide you with an easy online payment.
