We are calling all players who want to develop their football to be inter-league ready or simply improve their football to be a better player.

As part of our Parklea Officer Junior FC Academy, we will be running a program that replicates the Melbourne Football Club Next Generation Academy Program. Run by our home-grown Officer coaches, who are also contracted Development Coaches with the Melbourne Football Club, players, be shown techniques to improve their skills, will be taught new skills and techniques as well as improving the way they play football, where to run, kick etc. This will be a program no other club in our league runs.

We’ll also be using the program as a gateway for any parent who has an interest in coaching but didn’t know where to start. So if you are a parent that wants to coach one day, get on board, we’ll need the help and you’ll get the development as a coach of the future.

When: Starting this Friday night 6:30 – 7.30/8.00pm at Heatherbrae (then every Friday after).

Who: All U11-U17 registered OKJFC players can participate FREE. Also, open to any parent interested in coaching or current coach wanting further development.

Registration: So we can have an idea of numbers, please comment below that you or your child will be attending or email If you don’t register, you can still come to Heatherbrae on Friday night.

Questions: Call Shayne on 0400 242 802 or email
