PGFC Academy School trials dates confirmed

Each of the club’s four PGFC Academy partner schools, St. Andrew’s Grammar, John Curtin College of the Arts, Lake Joondalup Baptist College and Safety Bay Senior High School, will shortly be hosting trial days for their respective specialist football programs.

The PGFC Academy Schools roll out a 12-month program which provides a unique opportunity for highly-motivated young players to develop their football through additional training sessions, while also enabling them to continue with their education.

Focusing upon individual players and personal development within a team environment, the program aims to maximize each participant’s athletic and academic potential, expands opportunities for talent identification and provide a pathway into the elite PGFC Academy.
