Yeah, the A-league is the top division in Australia, but underneath that, the State leagues are the best, and those are played in the same format as in England. I strongly doubt the youth leagues in Sydney are pro. But it is definently possible to move up the ranks and play for the first senior team and get money. The only pro youth league is our new national youth league. Fortunatly ive watched enough Football stars of tommorow to know what its about
It depend where you live matey, which determines which clubs you should tryout for. You might need to travel a fair distance, which you might need to consider, because these clubs have fitness, gym sessions and training at least 3 times a week which you will need to attend. Also, to play in NSWPrem League, you probably need to be at least 17.
I would suggest you reasearch a team. The team which has produced top quality A-league, Socceroos, Olyroos, and even European & EPL players is Marconi Stallions. Too many players have come through the ranks there including Harry Kewell. If you're under 20, and a top player for Marconi, you're pretty much guaranteed to get snatched by the A-league
Other teams you should consider are Blacktown City demons, Manly, Wollongong, West Sydney, Bankstown, Sydney U, Sydney Olympic, APIA Leichdhart, MacArthur, Sutherland, and Penrith, all are top quality teams.
Once you decide which team/s you would like to play for, you should check the websites, and check for trials, and contact info. Most clubs offer tryouts. Though I doubt you will make it this year, as the season is well under way.
Thats pretty much everything I know about NSW prem football. I hope it helps in some sense.
