ELITE FOOTBALL LEAGUE

Jamie Gosling Football Academy (JGFA) & Gareth Edds Soccer Academy (GESA) have partnered up to create an exciting league in North Queensland called the ELITE FOOTBALL LEAGUE. The aim of this league is to create opportunities for our advanced players to play in competitive and challenging games with and against like minded and similarly skilled players. This league helps take their game to the next level with constant feedback from our coaches and a chance for them to mould and develop their ‘football brain’.

ELITE FOOTBALL LEAGUE INFORMATION

  • Venue: Tully, Cairns & Townsville
  • Playing against elite players from across North Queensland
  • The best players selected by TRIALS
  • Honorary Team of the Year / Player of the Tournament / Goal Keeper of the Year/ Top Goal Scorer of the Year (selected in each age category).

3 weekend trips per year (6 rounds of games)

  1. Weekend trip Term 1 (Tully)
  2. Weekend trip Term 2 or 3 (Cairns)

There are recorded League Tables and Individual honours at the end of each season, as well as an end-of-season presentation day/evening.

​We choose teams to represent JGFA in the following age groups – Under 7, Under 9, Under 11, Under 13 and Under 15.

The chosen players will also have to train with JGFA in their EFL teams at least 1 session per week to be able to participate in Elite Football League (EFL).

*Please note this is just if you want to be a part of the JGFA teams – other clubs/academies can enter EFL under their own names.

​Players chosen for the EFL are given the opportunity to travel with JGFA and enter other tournaments in their teams – travel will be discussed once teams are selected.

Exciting news! JGFA EFL teams will aim to take teams to the Gold Coast Champions Youth Cup in September 2021 to take on the best youth sides from around Australia.

Further details on this trip will be provided for all players selected in JGFA EFL teams.
