1on1 Training is for players who want to get the most focused and concentrated technical training possible. We see a lot of 1on1 coaches doing ladders, hurdles and agility exercises without a ball. If you want to get more agile or faster go to a running or sprint coach don’t pay excessive amounts for training you didn’t sign up for or more importantly for training that the coach may not be qualified to provide.
That is why everything we do we try to add a ball in. After all you are paying for football coaching, therefore you need a ball. We still develop players in a holistic way focusing on one core skill per session but also including the others as hidden learning.
The core skills we focus on are
- First touch (inside, top of the foot and thigh, chest, in the air and on the ground)
- Striking the ball (passing, shooting, crossing, volleys with both feet)
- 1v1 Attacking (skill moves, dribbling, change of speed and direction)
- 1v1 Defending (timing, tackling, aggression)

There will also be a one-off fee of $50 per year to help cover the cost of the special academy shirt and extra pair of shorts.

It is also important to note that players need to be registered with an MWFA Club to participate and be covered by insurance.
Wet Weather Plan
It is the eventual plan of the club to source an artificial or indoor facility in the future so that there is no need for a wet weather plan.
However, until that time arises we are at the mercy of mother nature. As such here is our wet weather plan. We will run sessions during the holiday on the exiting weekdays and or Saturday/Sunday morning. These days are free as kids do not play during the holidays.
