Youth Development Program – 2022


2022 will see the return of the Hills Knights Youth Development Teams for U8 to U16 age groups. The aim of the development program is to provide a pathway for children who want to excel in our sport.

Trials will commence in early February with teams being selected by the panel of development coaches, based on the club grading policy.

All coaches involved with the Development squads will have completed the appropriate FFA Coaching Course (Grass Roots, Skills Acquisition, Game Training or C License) in line with FFA guidelines. The club is committed to the development of the coaches to ensure the highest standards are set on and off the field.

Selection in the development team will be a great achievement in itself, but will also require commitment from both the children and parents. Parents and children are required to adhere to the Club, HFI, FNSW & FFA codes of conduct. Failure to uphold training & game attendance or poor conduct may result in the player being removed from the team.

Players interested in trialing for the Youth Development Program need to register their interest via this YDP EOI form.

Upon registration of interest you will be emailed the grading times and locations. Players who haven’t registered their interest will not be able to trial. For insurance reasons players are to register with the Knights before they trial and attend both grading sessions.
