This is why it's much easier for private school kids to progress in sport - they can afford the best coaches with the right contacts - most of the public schools have to deal with ex-aussie rules players as sports teachers - or netball or Basketcase (ball) players.

Same the world over for all sports. But the very best players get scholarships anyway.

A little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing :mrgreen:

Get the facts before making silly comments.

Some "private" schools have only recently invested in their sports department, with the aim of offering students another life option when entering the work force.

Blackfriars started a soccer program with Ernie Luongo several years ago, and have progressively expanded and improved on it.

It is a great idea and one that is a must because some "public" school funding on the same idea has been around longer and bigger. Adelaide High, Unley High, Roma Mitchell Secondary http://rmsc.sa.edu.au/

What was "silly" about my comment?

I was merely pointing out the truth - that Private schools offer the easiest chance to progress in sport due tot he availability of professional coaching and easier access to advancement. :!:

Public school sport is run by the 'Education' department which like most state based agencies has a bias towards aussie rules, so Football lacks broad-based support.

There are a few "specialis" Football schools but they do not get anyway near as as much backing as those catering for aussie rules.

Silly because your at least 5 years behind the times and have not bothered to inform yourself before trying to tell everyone about what you knew 10 years ago.

Everything I said is as current today as it was 5 years ago in terms of funding from state bodies.

I know of 3 state schools that have very big funding budgets and offer very good sports education by very qualified and talented people.

I also know that some private schools are cutting their budgets due to economic difficulty, and some private schools that have very poor sports education run by people with limited specific sports knowledge.

BPS is one of only a few schools that is investing in a future for students and need to be commended, not hit with inaccurate comments.

There's a reason that people choose certain schools, it's because schools offer certain things that others don't. So making comments about "rich" private schools is silly. Go have a look at Adelaide High schools sports offerings, or Dame Mitchell, Unley.

You are simply twisting my words to suit your opinion rather than making an intelligent response - as usual.

Everything I said is accurate across SA, of course there are a few exceptions to any rule but in this case it is down to the people running those schools rather than any benevolence from the powers that be.

The sport programs that some of these schools are implementing are fantastic. An example is the soccer lessons at my sons school, it is an elective and the teaching includes all aspects of the game - physical and mental, practical and theory, they learn all aspects of the game; sports science, equipment such as boot design and aids, etc. Study and make a report and are tested. They all achieve a referees licence and learn about the new football curriculum and coaching licencing. They are tested and scores go towards their term and year marking.

Some aspects of the program is what NPL junior clubs should implement.

All started on a limited budget by a few dedicated sports people with a vision.

Besides all that - who doesn't want to win? :lol:

Didn't Marryatville High School win the SSSSA Open Boys soccer competition last year - beating the likes of St Peters and CBC along the way?

My Lads state high school has one of these "coaches" with little or no experience with the game.

His school has progressed to the state finals cleaning up some "private" schools along the way.
He also has mates who attend "specialist" soccer programmes at colleges.
Trust me, 3-4 nights a week of Fed. club training more than compensates for what training they don't get at school.
Most lads in the "specialized" soccer programmes treat it as a bit of fun and time away from the books.
I know of some lads who have been at these soccer schools who have since moved back to regular schools as the soccer programmes were
considered over-rated.
Most lads consider the whole school soccer as a bit of fun.
Some people tell me that we professional players are soccer slaves. Well, if this is slavery, give me a life sentence.

Why is this in the amateur league forum?
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

Pretty sure Craigmore High won some statewide comp last year and then went on to beat the equivalent side in Victoria.

Quite frankly my hard earned dollars getting tipped in to my son's private school
should be spent on kids learning reading writing and 'rithmetic.
Not on paying big dollars to these big name coaches just to stroke the egos of the school sports dept.
If your kid is serious about his soccer, there are more important pathways than school soccer.
