At John Moriarty Football our Scholarship Program is about creating opportunities for talented young elite footballers who have a dream to pursue both their education and football in Sydney.

It is a radically life changing opportunity for those talented young footballers in our program who show exceptional sporting ability. Our partner schools include Westfield Sports High School, Hills Sports High School, Endeavour Sports High School, SCEGGS Darlinghurst and Waverley College.

We operate on a home-based model, where families board our young athletes.

We select scholarship recipients based on:

– athletic talent and potential
– commitment to training
– school attendance
– parental support

Thirteen year old Tremaine trialled alongside Brenda at Hills Sports mid-2016 and was also offered a place in the elite Football program. Tremaine is rarely without a smile on his face, a ball at his feet and a bag packed ready for school and training. He is very keen to propel his football this coming year and we are sure will continue to show his aptitude for learning both in the classroom and on the football pitch. Tremaine is the most remote of our “class of 2017”, coming from tiny Robinson River, two hours down a corrugated dirt road from Borroloola. His school is excited about his success and is following his every move.
