Pre-Academy Centres (PAC) are a stepping stone into the Wellington Phoenix Academy. The PAC targets players in the skill acquisition phase (9-12) and looks to build on their key skills and confidence to help them take the next step in their football journey. These sessions are intended to complement a player’s community football development.
The academy has 12 PAC partners throughout New Zealand. They are able to draw on the Phoenix’s Pre-Academy training programme and the club’s development centre, to develop players, parents and coaches.
In 2022 we welcome the addition of a Girls Only Centre also.
The Pre-Academy is a great chance to get more touches on the ball to complement any current football development.
