FSC is one of the few association in NSW to have its own Academy. The Junior Academy is for both boys and girls aged 6 to 12 years field players and 10 to 15 years goal keepers.
It is a development program aligned to FFA pathways, aimed at players who can train intensively with FSC highly experienced coaches.
Academies are provided across a number of geographic locations including Wollongong (Central), Barrack Heights (Southern) and Bulli (Northern)
The Academy also provides specialised coaching for Goal Keepers at Wollongong (Central) on Monday night only and is offered during all term Academies. During Spring and Summer Academy an additional Goal Keeper Academy is offered at Barrack Heights (Southern) on Thursday night.
