Soccer Academy

St Joseph's Hectorville Soccer Academy, commencing in 2019

St Joseph’s Hectorville commenced a new specialised Soccer Academy in 2019.

Soccer has always been a big part of the culture at St Joseph’s Hectorville and has nurtured players to go on and play at a high level including many who have played professionally.

The Soccer Academy will allow students to undertake soccer lessons in addition to their Physical Education. The program will consist of a weekly lesson as well as optional after school sessions. The focus is developing students' technical ability and providing a game-based approach where fun and enjoyment for all will be experienced. 


Variations of the program will be available for all students from Year 3 to Year 7 during school hours, and after school for a high performance group. Preschool to Year 2 students will also have the opportunity to register to participate in an out of hours school Soccer Academy.

Our Physical Education Teacher, Steven Grelli, who has played at a semi-professional level and has experience in coaching and development of young players, both one on one, and club teams will head the program.
