Queenslanders in Female Academy

Two of Queensland’s rising football stars had a glimpse of elite life at the Female High Performance Academy in Victoria.

Hannah Davidson and Jade Ransfield, who will represent the state at May’s Youth Girls Nationals, were among a select group of 16 year olds invited to the Academy, based at Visy Park .

The pair experienced elite level training as well as attending education sessions on high performance training, over the four-day camp.

Both impressed at the camp, showing their strong work ethic and soaking up all the information they could.

The Female High Performance Academy was established with ta viwew to providing girls with similar talent opportunities to their male counterparts.

This new academy, targeted at teens, replaces the previous High Performance academy which focused on senior players.

 Twenty-two of the country’s top young female footballers were put through their paces in fitness testing as well as learning about nutrition, recovery and skill development.

The Academy includes two other streams, a mentoring program for coaches and for aiding in the progress of state-based game development staff.

A key aim of the camp is for the information to filter back to local clubs to improve the standard of female football in all areas.
