Development Programs

Since it's inception, our highly regarded Development Programs have resulted in a high proportion of Hornsby Heights FC players being selected into the Northern Tigers representative programs. Most importantly players of all skill levels and abilities finished the season with a deeper enjoyment of the game of football as their confidence levels sky-rocketed from the professional football tuition on offer.

  • Every U6 to U11 Hornsby Heights registered player will have professional coaching one afternoon a week across our 16 week in-season program (April to August). This is included in your registration fee.

  • Professional coaches and development programs will enhance your child’s confidence, ball manipulation, ball mastery and 1v1 skills.

  • FFA Curriculum – players will build skills and confidence with the ball across the four key skill elements – 1v1, Running with the Ball, Striking & Passing the Ball and First Touch.

  • Best natural playing surface in the NSFA. State of the art drainage systems. Equals – Better ball control, more training time, less games cancelled due to wet weather.

  • Our home ground – Montview Oval – also has field sizes that span multiple age groups which leads to more “home games” during each season.

  • Saturday morning games – Mixed boys and girls. Season starts April 2021.

  • Grading for Under 6 to Under 11 Teams will take place in February 2021. Players must register and pay online before grading to guarantee a placement in a team (see our “Registration Tab” for further information and the online registration link).
