ALW Pathway Program Selection Days

Melbourne Victory will be running two Women’s football pathway programs helping to identify the next generation of A-League Women’s stars.

Join us on Tuesday 12 December and Wednesday 13 December when the Club will be holding joint selection days for our ALW Pathway Program and ALW Girls Accelerator Program.

The A-League Women’s Pathway Program (ALW PP) is for talented female players aged U14 – U19.

The program operates as a “training only environment” based out of Maribyrnong Sports College on Tuesday evenings, where our qualified MVFC coaches focus on technical skill development in line with the MVFC Women’s team playing philosophy and curriculum.

These weekly sessions are designed to complement the young players club training and matches, not replace them (where possible). 

This program is a vital stage in our pathway through to our ALW squad, where this past ALW season we signed nine players onto ALW scholarship and Youth Development contracts who have graduated from the ALW PP program.

The ALW Girls Accelerator Program (GAP) mirrors the ALW PP in terms of the coaching methodology, curriculum, coaching standards and oversight from the A-League women’s staff. This is also a training-only program designed to supplement the development work that is being provided through your club/school environments, not replace it, (where possible).

The ALW GAP will be delivered out of Rowville Secondary College on Wednesday evenings and a yet-to-be-finalised venue in the west on Monday evenings.

Both ALW PP and GAP are overseen by the MVFC A-League Women Head Coach Jeff Hopkins and Assistant Coach Gareth Turnbull, whilst being delivered by suitably qualified, independent coaches.

We are proud that we can offer a direct link into our senior women’s professional environment for those ALW PP players who consistently demonstrate the desired capabilities across the year.
