GHFA player pathway is shown in the diagram below. Note that for clarity in the diagram, links from local Clubs direct to NPL Youth or Seniors are not shown, but such pathways are acceptable.
GHFA runs Academies for Under 6 to Under 12 age groups where players receive specialist training by qualified GHFA coaches in addition to their Club training and matches.
When players reach the Under 9 age group they can seek selection either in the Skills Acquisition Program (SAP), or continue with the GHFA Academies which allow them to continue to train and play matches with their local Club. Players selected into SAP train and play matches within the Football NSW program.
Players reaching the Under 13 age group can seek selection either in the SpiritFC Youth teams which train and play matches within the Football NSW program, or in the GHFA Regional Conference teams where they train and play matches with their local Club, whilst they also receive additional training from qualified GHFA coaches and play once a fortnight in the FNSW Regional Conference competition.
