Happy Stories from Parents
Our Son Jacob was with ASR for four years starting with the Soccer Totties and then moving on to the ASR Winter program. Right from the beginning, Anthony has been engaging, accommodating, and above all excellent with all the Kids.
“Anthony and his team deliver a well-run, professional development program for the kids with excellent facilities, drills, and fun but the hard-working environment. He has a great eye for talent and has mentored and nurtured Jacob & me through to rep football along with many others.
Jacob loved his time at ASR and has made many friends who have all progressed with him. I would have no hesitation in recommending ASR, Anthony, and his team to others.

I just wanted to share a quick thanks and let you know that ASR football did a wonderful job with both my boys over the many years they were at ASR football. ASR football provided a wonderful platform for both my boys to learn the skills they needed to achieve their goals within a fantastic facility at Seven hills.
“I must also congratulate you on all the wonderful coaches ASR manage to have guiding the kids around the park, what was a stand out for me was the kids getting coached by Former A league players, European coaches and the like (not some kid looking for a part time job).
Their development and attitude within the ASR football program I believe allowed them to find a pathway into Blacktown City (NPL1) through the many years at ASR football and are both still at Blacktown City playing Youth football.
Once again Anthony I would just like to say a big thankyou for all your efforts and ASR football
From park football to ASR, the investment was and is certainly worth it. The development of my 2 kids has been noticeable by many football clubs including SAP. My kids have developed into strategic soccer players focusing on the team winning and being well disciplined under the ASR system.
The ASR academy was a great choice for my son Jaydon.
Not only did he develop a good understanding of the game but made great friends.
“ A true testament to Anthony and his coaching staff my boy enjoyed his experience and loves the game. We would recommend ASR highly especially if you want your child not only to develop a footballer but develop their social skills.
Thank you, Anthony and the ASR team.
My 8 year old son has been training at ASR for 4 years now and his progression on playing and learning the game has been incredible. I had no hesitation sending my 5 year old who started this year and I can see the improvement in such a short period of time.
“The confidence they are given by the coaching and the system Anthony has in place is top class. I strongly recommenced anyone sending their child to ASR
Great academy for soccer we started our son last year and he improved 180 degrees with all the professional coaches and Anthony is a great leader
“We feel like our own family with ASR. If you are looking for a good place to train your kids Soccer never look elsewhere.
I’ve seen a few academies around Sydney and these guys are hands down one of the best. They have some great coaches behind them, especially in Anthony, who really helped my son settle in half way through the program.
“ Both friendly and professional at the same time, if you want your kids to develop skills on how to actually play the game then these guys are what you need. opportunity to travel and compete in an Italian tournament which will certainly be remembered as a milestone in his life. He has now gained a spot in a Premier club for next season.
ASR Football directed by Anthony Ucchino has led the way in the development of our son Adrian. From coaching staff to facilities and most importantly the environment, I highly commend the attitude and commitment shown by ASR.
It is through this commitment our son Adrian was able to further develop his game. The results were recognised within months at the Academy.
“The highlight of the 2 years Adrian had at ASR Football was the invitation to play in Italy in a cup tournament called the Bracaglia Cup which is associated with the Academy based in Australia.
It was evident that the coaching techniques taught at ASR were at the same level in Europe as this was shown in the structured play and results
We would like to acknowledge that our son Adrian has now advanced to a Premier League team and like to thank Anthony Ucchino and ASR Football for his coaching and dedication in developing our son.
Further to that, we have made a lot of new friends at this wonderful academy which we will treasure for the years to come.
Our experience with ASR Football has been without a doubt, the biggest influencing factor in our son’s football career so far.
He started with a supplementary skills programme and we were so impressed by this that we let him trial for the Elite Training Squad — which he went on to join the following year.
“Over the past 3 years our son has been coached and taught in a professional and safe environment. His passion for football has been shaped into sharpened physical and mental skills with opportunities to play at different levels — from friendly matches to games with Premier level teams.
He’s had the opportunity to travel and compete in an Italian tournament which will certainly be remembered as a milestone in his life. He has now gained a spot in a Premier club for next season.
ASR Football provides top level instruction with quality coaches at quality facilities. More than that, the emphasis is always on learning how to play the beautiful game — not just with the “win” in mind but the overall development of each dividual. All this is achieved during training — where boys are expected to work hard but are backed up by an atmosphere of respect and comradeship.
We fully recommend ASR Football and they will always have a part to play in our football life.

Both my sons have been training at the ASR Football Academy for the past four years and recently my 13 year old was selected for Youth Premier League, this is a credit to Anthony and his professional and successful training program.
He has enhanced my sons’ foot skills, technical and tactical ability taking his game to the next level, while just as importantly maintaining the fun, teamwork and discipline of the game.
“I would highly recommend ASR to all kids who have a passion for the game.
Without hesitation I would recommend Anthony and his team. They did a superb job rebuilding my son’s confidence and self-esteem as a player when it was destroyed playing in a previous premier league club. Thanks to a good year at ASR my son is back in premier league for next season.
To Anthony and ASR staff, let me start by saying that my family and I are very grateful for your given time and dedication to our son Christian.
I always want to see my son in the care of good people around him to learn from the experience and be able to move on with his head up high, for the next challenge, sport and academically speaking. We heard parents always wanting “it would be great if my kid could be star of the team” but that’s not our motto, you always gave all our boys in the team a fair go, I know it’s more important for my son to work hard and earn rewards for that hard work, we both know that success doesn’t always show itself in minutes played, I want to continue working side by side with my son and continue to acknowledge his hard work and help him experience more success in life to the best of my ability.
“I love to see the passion that my son Christian has for football, you have a big influence in Christian from the very start in his journey with ASR Roma from the beginning … How can I forget his first trial with ASR: you told me “Christian has something on him that I can’t coach… he’s got the brain to play but we need to work on his weight”
You already know what happens next… lost 8 Kg in 6 months — then he become a shadow player for most of the year until you gave him the opportunity to play at LA LIGA competition. Since then we was a regular in your line up. Your belief in him encouraged him to where he is now, and believe me when I say that he is willing to do so much to whatever his future might hold.
I felt privileged for your trust to appoint me as a manager of this beautiful team of boys in the past 2 years, a group that we will miss very much but never lost touch with them.
Thank you for giving the opportunity in meeting great families and for letting me and my family have the chance in helping you, in one way or another, with the hospitality of Juan, let me reassure you that he has been one of the best things that you could have done by bringing back to our boys … I will be forever grateful to both of you for believing in Christian, for seeing all what is capable of achieving and for never giving up on him, totally the contrary always asking of him to do better. We are so proud and let me tell you that he has been told that this new chapter in his football life it’s only the beginning and the easy part of it all, that the hard part is just starting and if he wants new challenges he will need to continue working harder and harder, as my wife always says to our son before each game: “you enjoy your game and give your best”.
Thank you — Gracias — Grazie … For all your advice and input towards our time with ASR Roma. By far an unforgettable time in my son’s football journey. Please do not hesitate to count with me for whatever activity you might need help with.
Last but not least … “I believe in your philosophy of football”.
My son and I highly recommend ASR Football Academy.
My son has spent two enjoyable years at ASR learning the game of football under the watchful eye of Anthony Ucchino. Fitness was incorporated into ASR’s dynamic possession based football model whilst at the same time learning and developing his game. ASR provides the necessary coaching required to develop footballers capable of competing at higher levels.
We thank Anthony and ASR Football for their role in my son’s football development.
Thanks to ASR for providing our sons with such a high standard of football. The underlying fundamentals of football in which ASR has taught my boys has made them the players they are today, strong, skilful, passionate, and resilient. One of my boys has gained a spot into the Blacktown City 13s team which he is very excited about.
“The quality of football he displays is undeniably that of which ASR has taught him. We will continue to keep our youngest son at ASR until he is at the right age to move on.
Thanks ASR for developing our boys to such a high standard of football.
ASR Football delivers a unique combination of professional coaching and development in an environment where kids have fun and look forward to the next training session. The coaches are astute to getting the best out of kids and my boys have prospered under this direction. Importantly the program is full of quality young footballers, and this encourages the kids to strive to be their best to keep up with the growing skills of their peers.
The summer program has been great in lifting my son to be at his peak level for representative trials, and to perform from day one of the winter season.
