NSM, the CC Mariners city based pathway.

The Mariners are proud to offer a city based National Youth League and A League Pathway on Sydney’s Lower North Shore.

Players at both the North Shore and Central Coast come under the same program and technical direction.

NS Mariners v Central Coast Mariners A League.

The North Shore players always look forward to the challenge of playing the current A League players. Joe Haywood took his team to the Centre of Excellence on the Central Coast just last week for a game against the CCM A League lads.” Great game as usual, very good experience for our younger players, they need to understand what it’s like to play at the top level, and the only way they can do that is to take on the current A League players.”

Under17s- Women should talk to Head Coach Drew Taylor
