Mitchelton Centre of Football Education

Expression of Interest

We are seeking Expressions of Interest from parents of players, both Female and Male aged between 9 and 16 who would like to participate in the Mitchelton Centre of Football Education.


The Mitchelton Centre of Football Education is being established to provide an opportunity to gain additional education in football from highly qualified staff who have coached football teams and managed players both in Australia and overseas.


The Centre program will be managed and delivered by Mitchelton Football Club Senior Technical Director, Juan Carlos Buzzetti (FFA A Licence) and Mitchelton Football Club Youth and SAP Technical Director Joe Fenech (FFA A Licence).


The program will cover all areas of the game and will focus on Technique; Skill; Physical; Tactical and Psychological / Mental Developmental Training.    


Small sided games, Functions and Phases of Play, will all be used in a complete twelve week program designed to enhance the players understanding and appreciation of the game.


The program is designed to educate players how to think and move quicker to meet the challenges of a game which is getting faster using fewer touches on the ball, This combined with better decision making will provide all players with the opportunity to perform to their ability at all levels of the game.


The programs, with targeted outcomes for various age groups and skill levels, have been developed, and are currently being enhanced, by Carlos and Joe and will, in most cases, be delivered by them. Other coaching staff, with specific experience, will also deliver parts of the program with all coaches having FFA Coaching Licences and working under the Mitchelton Football Club Coach Mentor program.


It is planned to start the first program in March, 2021. The cost of the 12 Week Program will be $240.00 with one session each week running for one hour and fifteen minutes.
