This is an invitation only event for those who have been identified as athletically talented by Academy staff, but currently playing another sport. Kieren Jack, a former Swans co-captain, grew up in Sydney and made the switch from rugby league to AFL when he was a teenager. A trial day is held in September each year, and participants may be offered a place in the QBE Sydney Swans Academy program.

  • Age 15 – 193cm
  • Age 16 – 196cm
  • Age 17 – 199cm
  • Age 18 – 202cm
