Full details

The HV Junior Academies have replaced the Tier 6 Development Programs. Players will be involved in weekly skill based training sessions at decentralised locations and half day game based morning sessions in both Term 4, 2014 and Term 1, 2015. Total cost for players will be $180 which will include a training singlet. This cost has been subsidised through sponsorship and grants.

Not selected into the Academy but think you might have the ability to get one of the remaining 33 spots for boys or 38 spots for girls? Then Draft Camp is the opportunity for you….

Academy Draft Camp is two days of intensive skill and game based coaching, conducted at the SNHC. Coaches include some of Victoria’s top players, including current VIS scholarship holders, Vipers and Viking players. Groups will be limited to 80 field players and 10 Goal Keepers with coach/player ratios at maximum of 1:10. Players will be put in ability based groups with coaching designed to push their boundaries. Feedback will be emailed to all players at the conclusion of the two days and players selected in the Academy will be notified by a separate email.

Who can come: Open to anyone from U12 - U18 who has played Zone Challenge (2013), JSC (2014) or made the State trial lists. Players from U12 & U16 SSV teams and players from HV U13, 15 & 18 Number (2) teams are encouraged to attend.
