Leader in Junior Player Development
Mt Gravatt Hawks FC has a proud history of developing young players into the best footballers they can possibly be while also teaching important life skills to be the best community members they can possibly be as well.
With the likes of Matt McKay (Brisbane Roar/Socceroos), Jade North (Brisbane Roar/Socceroos, Nathan Coe (Melbourne Victory) and Katrina Gorry (Brisbane Roar/Matildas) having graduated from Mt Gravatt Hawks development programs in the past Mt Gravatt Hawks FC intends to continue this proud history.
Mt Gravatt Hawks FC has returned to its once renowned philosophy of Junior Player Development with the aspiration of becoming a recognised leader once again.
To do this Mt Gravatt Hawks FC has established a comprehensive Junior Development Program (JDP) that will enable our young footballers to develop and reach their full potential regardless of what level that potential may be.
In doing so Mt Gravatt Hawks FC has made a commitment to ensure our players have access to the best possible coaching through our team of independent and qualified Head Coaches (a Head Coach is being appointed to each age group) and our Technical Department which includes professionally qualified Technical Director and Director of Coaching who will oversee all players and coaches to ensure Mt Gravatt follows a proven development curriculum similar to the FFA National Curriculum and to ensure all coaches at Mt Gravatt are committed to individual and team player development at all levels.
In 2023, the club will continue its implementation of its Junior Development Program (JDP) which covers all ages 3 to 16 years.
SAP PROGRAM U7-12
Program Launch for 2023 is TBA.
The program is focused on individual player development for those who want to take their game to a higher level. The program provides an additional night of training which is focused on each individual player’s development including their first touch, running with the ball, striking the ball and taking players on 1v1.
The program is based on FFA’s National Football Curriculum and form part of the Skills Acquisition Phase (SAP) for player development.
Program is OPEN to all players (including players from other clubs) aged 7-12 years.
