ALTERNATIVE PATHWAYS

If you are U13 or older, there are alternative pathways into the Academy, primarily by invitation only.

1. Academy staff spot you playing for your club or school and invite you to participate in an assessment.

2. Kieren Jack Talent Search – this is an invitation only event for those who have been identified as athletically talented by Academy staff, but currently playing another sport. A trial day is held in September each year, and participants may be offered a place in the QBE Sydney Swans Academy program.

3. King Size Athlete Search – the Academy is seeking very tall boys, who are competitive, athletic and excel at sport (not necessarily AFL). A basic guide is that boys 
must be a certain height by a certain age to be considered:

  • Age 14 – 190cm
  • Age 15 – 193cm
  • Age 16 – 196cm
  • Age 17 – 199cm
  • Age 18 – 202cm

    If you are interested and meet the criteria, please send your information to Academy staff by emailing academy@sydneyswans.com.au

PLEASE NOTE: Only players who reside in the Swans Academy zone are eligible for selection in any of these programs. The updated zone surrounding the Hills District can be accessed here.
