Football Excellence Program

​Marsden State High Schools Football Excellence Program aims to provide students superior opportunities from a grassroots level through to the elite stage of development. Marsden SHS competes in South East Queensland’s highest level tournaments including the Schools Premier League, Bill Turner Cup, Veto Cup and SEQ Futsal. We continue to ensure students have the best opportunity to be identified and represent at Logan District, Met East, Queensland and Australian levels as well as maintaining a close relationship with Brisbane Roar FC.

Through Years 7 to 12, students will gain accreditation as qualified fitness instructors (Cert III – Fitness), coaches (Grassroots), referees (Level 4) and also receive unique leadership opportunities. Students in the Football Excellence Program attend four timetabled lessons a week (three for Year 7 and 8). These sessions include one theory lesson, two training sessions (one for Year 7 and 8) and one inter/intraschool match. Theory lessons for Years 7-10 are aligned with the Australian Health and Physical Education Curriculum. Theory lessons for Years 11 and 12 are aligned with a Certificate III in Fitness (leads into Cert IV – qualified personal trainer).

Training sessions and extra coaching is conducted by a team of qualified staff including a one UEFA A and three AFC C-License level coaches with a wealth of experience in Football Brisbane and abroad. The Program implements a holistic approach to football and learning that seeks to develop pride, persistence and passion in our students as well as a dare to inspire and make a difference attitude.
