FC1919 Rapid Acceleration Program

TERM 2 will commence from Monday 22 April 2024. All Participants that have registered, please check your email for further detials (check your junk mail)


This will not be a mandatory, but rather an opt in / opt out Program run per term. 


Our program will have a greater focus on individual player development, with a specific focus on player positions. It will include field-based sessions as well as video analysis to help increase player knowledge and ability of their role within the team.

We are excited to bring this to Grange Thistle and feel this is a great step forward in providing an excellent environment for our players to develop and grow.

Our FC1919 Rapid Acceleration Program runs during the School Term timeframe (subject to weather impact variations) and is for all levels of Players from Community to Academy in the Under 8 to U16 age groups.

Session times will be as follows:

Under 8 to Under 12 Community Level Players Monday 5.00pm to 6.00pm

Under 13 to Under 18 Community Level Players Monday 6.15pm to 7.15pm

Under 8 to U12 Academy Level Player Friday 5.00pm to 6.00pm

The structure will generally be as follows.

  • Under 8’s to Under 12’s
    This program is entirely about improving basic technical skills. 

    • Thinking how to pass and receive a ball,

    • kicking technique,

    • Turns and

    • Shooting. 

We will eventually be grading children according to their skill levels (this will take a few weeks), 

meaning that participants in each age group will move to appropriate drills and structures or will be given more specialized coaching focused upon the very basic building blocks of football.

  • Under 13’s to Under 16’s
    This is a position specific training session.  It will be split between de
    fenders, midfielder and strikers (Goalkeepers if numbers allow) with drills and exercises specific to each group.  It will include some ‘classroom’ sessions articulating and explaining positional play. 


What are we hoping to achieve out of this program?

Our Club has heard the feedback that many of our parents and players are looking for something extra.  This Program gives access to the very highest levels of coaching in coordinated and organized development sessions. 

Our Vision is to be a coaching leader on the Northside of Brisbane, developing players and our community in a fun and inclusive environment. Therefore, the Program is open to all abilities with the intent to eventually separate the group by skill levels to ensure it remains relevant for every player.


There will be four (4) planned ‘terms’ run in 2024, Feb/Mar; May/Jun; Jul/Aug and Oct/Nov. All will be scheduled on Monday nights.  So, factor that into your decision making if you are looking at how to plan other extra-curricular activities.

The cost for the term is $165 for Club Members and $200 for Non-Club Members. 
Numbers will be limited so sign up early.
