Mariners Community Programs

Introducing the Mariners Community Programs and Football Pathway for 2010

SCHOLARSHIPS

The Central Coast Academy of Sport (CCAS) Scholarship and Part-Scholarship is a joint initiative between the Central Coast Mariners (CCM) and the CCAS. Scholarships and Part-Scholarships are awarded via a trial system to the most outstanding 14 to 16 year old male footballers and the most outstanding 13 to 16 year old female footballers in NSW. The year round training program is based around the FFA National Curriculum and its long term goal is to launch young careers into the National Youth League, Westfield W-League and beyond.

ELITE ACADEMY

The Central Coast Mariners Elite Academy is aimed at identifying the best 6 to 13 years boys and girls footballers in NSW. The Mariners Elite Academy will focus on the following:
