North Melbourne Football Club’s Next Generation Academy is an elite development program for 11-15-year-old girls and boys of all backgrounds.

The Next Generation Academy is committed to developing champions on and off the field. Participants will undergo skills training, drills and games on field under the guidance of our highly skilled and qualified coaches.

Off field, academy participants will undergo education and training sessions including cultural awareness training, mental health/skills programs and careers and education pathway information sessions.

Whilst the academy program is open to those of all backgrounds, North Melbourne Football Club strongly encourages girls and boys from Multicultural and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds to register and attend the Next Generation Academy. Previous football experience is NOT a requirement to participate in the academy.
