    That's a pretty good effort all around.

    Posted originally in the SAP thread, but just though it more appropriate here:

    https://newcastleolympicfc.wordpress...tball-academy/

    Newcastle Olympic wishes to announce the establishment of the Newcastle Olympic Football Academy (NOFA). The Academy (NOFA) will serve the needs of individual players regardless of age, team, or development phase. The training will be based on developing attributes that are consistent with NOFC’s philosophy and ethos regarding technical ability, work ethic, and personal character.

    Interesting read - More and more clubs coming up with their own alternatives to the TSP. Are the clubs unhappy with the results being shown?

    can you further explain what you refer to results shown!

    NOFA providing there own ethos and style, is the way to go, this should serve well for there own player stream in the future, this also depends on coaching staff at time, promoting youngsters or paying overs for aged players or jets players which have been told there services are no longer available.

    U sayin Olympic not so good at promoting there own kids?

    I cant read the link but think Newy clubs having academys is a good thing as long as it ain't just a cash grab. some NPL clubs in sydney have there own academies and produce good kids. if its about making kids better i am all for it.

    I don't think I said that?
    I said its the way to go, if designed fit for purpose for the club

    As for Sydney academies and good kids. not sure where these good kids you referring are.
    Aus national u23 teams struggle to beat the likes of Thailand, Vietnam etc
    All focused on revenue, not talent or development, always will be

    Just repeating some concerns I’ve heard previously. Inconsistent messaging between club and TSP leading to the clubs being unhappy with some of the guidance and direction that the TSP boys are receiving.
    Several clubs are now setting up their own alternatives to TSP. Just thinking is it as a result of the training the TSP boys are receiving, or ensuring the players not at TSP are getting complimentary training.

    I thought Newcastle Academy was private? Run by a former jet kid?

    The founder is Charlestowns SAP coordinator or TD equivalent I heard.

    Regardless, they are doing something right in the younger ages. They were substantially better later in the season than they were at the start.

    The founder is Liam McDonald who is now at Edgeworth and last year was their U13s coach. Started as their U14s coach but left toward the end of last year.

    Mick Hugo was the TD when the Academy was established he has nothing to do with it and is Assistant at Edgeworth 13s and Head Coach of South Cardiff 18s

    Talking about the wrong people mate. I was talking about Azzurri’s SAP TD or SAP co ordinator. Whatever the title is. He’s a coach of one of the Charlestown 10 SAP teams last year and this year is their SAP TD.

    I may be 100% wrong but I was told he founded the Newcastle city football academy and bought in Liam as a head coach.

    Today Magic played Mariners and got totally SMASHED in every age group. In other news Weston Youth teams were SMASHED by Mounties Wanderers. The gap in standard is very big indeed. More news just in: Jets 13s defeated Edgy 14s 3-2; Edgy 15’s defeated Jets 14s 2-1.
