To Register

Casey Comets are delighted to announce a fresh new approach to the development and exciting future of our sub-junior and junior soccer programs.

We are introducing Spring & Summer Academy programs that will be delivered by highly qualified coaches that have considerable coaching experience and professional playing experience.

Whether you are a junior player looking to continue and strengthen your development between competitive seasons or you are just starting your soccer experience and wish to join the Club, then the Casey Comets Academy programs are just right for you.

The programs can give our young players and youth the opportunity for a pathway to achieve soccer excellence. The curriculum is based on some of the best coaching methods throughout the world.

We value our young players and hope they can achieve their soccer dreams.

Each program will run for 10 weeks on Saturday mornings. The training sessions are open to boys and girls and are age specific.
Players can register for either the Spring or Summer Program or can register to both. Each player receives a free training kit & ball (whether they sign for one or both programs) 

** The Summer program will be open for registration in October
