Wellington Phoenix Football Academy

The Wellington Phoenix Football Academy and FC Nelson are excited to partner together to deliver the Wellington Phoenix Experience Camp in Nelson this Summer!

The WPX Experience Camp is a great opportunity for football players in the Nelson region to be immersed in a quality football environment, led by WPX Academy coaching staff.

This camp is open for all players born between 2008-2012. Thanks to the generous support of Mike Greer Homes, this WPX Experience Camp will take place at the world class Trafalgar Park!

17th & 18th January 2022

Trafalgar Park, Nelson

$195 per player

This WPX Experience Camp is also a significant milestone in the relationship between FC Nelson and the Wellington Phoenix Academy. Plans are in place for FC Nelson to become an official WPX Development Centre, beginning in Term 2.

This is a great opportunity for FC Nelson to extend the football pathway which they already have in place, helping to grow their community football program and offer a genuine pathway for young players to enter the WPX Academy!

This partnership is a wonderful chance for our local children to have fun and develop their football skills in a supportive, well informed environment.
