Talented Football Program

Karabar High School and Monaro Panthers Football Club have developed a football (soccer) program which will begin in Term 1, 2019 (commencing with Year 7). The program will then build to run over four years (Years 7-10) and is for talented and driven footballers who want to excel and achieve their dream of playing professional football through a holistic model based on the best youth academies in Europe.

The program's key objectives are to develop and nurture the individual in:

  • Technical Ability
  • Self-Reflection/Self-Awareness
  • Match Analysis
  • Nutrition for Athletes
  • Mental Preparation
  • Agility, Balance and Coordination
  • Injury Prevention

The program is designed to expose players to the requirements of football at a professional level and to prepare them to reach this level. Players will be encouraged to use the S2S online system to manage their development through tracking of attendance and player load (internal and external activities), testing and analysis of player progression and time management of activities.

Karabar enters teams in the CHS competitions and students will have opportunities to showcase their talents to Sydney based Department of Education sports schools. Through these exposures there may be opportunities to gain an offer of enrolment in these schools. We are also exploring how, through the program, players can travel oversees as a team (self-funded tour) to experience the level and culture of football at other schools and academies in the UK and Europe.

The coaches in the program will bring with them a wealth of experience and will be led by Head Coach, Adam Firych, who has over 14 years' experience in Football Managing and Coaching. Adam is also a fully qualified FAI (Republic of Ireland) UEFA and FFA (Australia) 'A' Licence Coach and Physical Education and Sports Teacher with a Masters in Health and Physical Education.

Students will continue to undertake a full program of study consistent with the NSW Educational Standards Authority (NESA) and will qualify for the NSW HSC.
