About the U11 Next Step Programme

The GC Soccer Next Step Programme is the pathway to selection for the highest junior soccer honour on the Gold Coast…Representing our city as a Gold Coast Rep player in the Rebel Junior Premier League.

The Gold Coast is divided into 4 equally strong zones (refer to below for break-up) in the U11 age group, resulting in the top 56 to 60 players training and playing with and against each other over 15-20 weeks under the guidance of qualified coaches. The culmination of this programme will see 14 boys selected to play for the under 12 Gold Coast Representative team in 2012.

Team Selection

Trials will start in June and will run for 3 to 4 weeks. The top 14 players in each zone will then be selected to train together and play in a round robin format over 7-10 weeks. Selection will be made by a panel of coaches who hold a minimum of a Youth Coaching licence. The coaching panel reserves the right to move players to another zone if required.


Selected players will be charged a fee of $125, for which they receive approximately 30 hours of coaching and playing at a high standard and also get to keep their playing strips as a memento.


Selected players will train once per week on Sunday mornings so as not to disrupt club matches or club training. Training will go for a maximum of 2 hours and will be conducted according to the FFA curriculum by your qualified coach.

The Next Step Programme is not the only pathway to becoming a successful soccer player. There are players who have made it as professionals without going through this process. However it is a programme that does give you a great soccer and life experience and gives you the only opportunity of being selected for Queensland State teams. It is an individual choice to take part and we look forward to working with those players that are up to the challenge.
