Reception – Year 2: new soccer and skills program

Posted 19 February 2020

In Term 3, 2020, St Peter’s College will continue to partner with the Carrusca Football Academy to deliver a new soccer and skills program for Reception to Year 2 students. The academy is run by Marcelo Carrusca, a former Adelaide United player.

Carrusca Football Academy
The Carrusca Football Academy as a comprehensive football academy is focused on providing future generations with a platform to develop their sporting skills in a friendly and safe environment. The guiding principle is that young athletes have fun while they learn and play the “most beautiful sport in the world”. More than training children to become professional players, we believe that practicing sports is paramount in helping children and young people to develop as people and athletes.

About Marcelo Carrusca
Beginning his career with Estudiantes in Argentina’s Primeria Division, Carrusca was part of Galatasaray’s squad that won the Turkish Superliga title in 2008.

Highly regarded since joining the Hyundai A-League in the 2012/13 season, Carrusca was voted into the Professional Footballers Australia Team of the Season on three consecutive occasions between 2012 and 2015, was twice selected in the Hyundai A-League All-stars taking on Manchester United (2013) and Juventus (2014) and has won all three major Australian domestic honours – the Westfield FFA Cup, Hyundai A-League Premiership and Championship.
