Football Academy


Program Philosophy


Murrumba State Secondary College offers talented students a Footballing pathway through their Secondary schooling. Academy members undertake the Football Academy as a timetabled component of their studies complementing their quality learning in the core curriculum subjects. The Football Academy is designed to assist in the development of skilled students as complete footballers whilst using their passion for the world game to enhance academic performance and develop the skills needed for a career in Football.
The Academy provides students with numerous opportunities to represent the College in both Football and Futsal, as well as Queensland School Sport representation (District, Metropolitan, State and National level).
We have a number of affiliations within the football community, including the Brisbane Roar, Kick International Institute, Football Queensland Referees, as well as contacts at many local clubs.
