How does the Academy work?

About FUYA :

The Franklin United Youth Academy (FUYA, pronounced foo-yah) was established in 2018 to provide quality training for talented 12-17yo players in the Franklin region.  We form 1-2 teams in each age group which play in NRF competitions, aiming for a spot in higher divisions.

Franklin United has qualified coaches who deliver the Academy programme, supported by the Franklin Board and administration staff.

FUYA U12 Mixed, players train 2-3 times a week with FUYA coaches & play in DUFC teams at Drury.

FAQs

What is Franklin United Football Academy (FUYA)?

This has been set up to provide the Franklin community the opportunity for ambitious and potential footballers to follow an elite footballing pathway (All Whites, USA University Scholarship etc.).

This has been set up for local Franklin kids, from Bombay, to Mercer, to Drury, to Awhitu. Academy age group starts with training for 11/12yos and teams start at 13th grade goes up to 17th grade.

Where do the Academy teams play?

The Youth teams will play for Franklin United in the highest NRF competition possible.

There have been many questions about which divisions the FUYA teams will play in and we have sought clarification from the Auckland Football Federation (AFF) to make sure we  are clear on what’s in store for our players each weekend.

Can you be part of the Academy but still play for your club?

There are opportunities for players who just want to be exposed to the academy development, but also play with their friends at their local club (not for Franklin United).

How much does it cost?

The academy fees are in line with all other elite Auckland footballing academies.  

Is there trials?

The main trials are held in February each year, we welcome players to trial during year, please email us to ask training session details.

What if we can’t afford to put our child through the Academy?

There are limited funding opportunities available and kids can be selected with a reference from your local club and completing a process with Franklin United. This is to help kids that may not be able to afford the fees.
