Our Philosophy

Parramatta FC has a firm belief that creativity (boss over ball and opponent), challenges (learn fakes and passing movements like International stars of the game) and enjoyment is fundamental to a player’s success. We will teach football skills where the player is the central focus. Through this development process we aim to maximise the development for each player. Parramatta FC encourages learning from the mistakes, encouraging individual play, taking risk and initiatives.

“Be gutsy and dare to make mistakes”

To tackle shortcomings we promote a style of play that corresponds with the Australian mentality of a progressive, attacking game that will also teach fundamental football skills.
