We have young students from Year 7 participate in our program. This daily routine significantly develops the young athlete. The concept of combining studies with athletic development teaches discipline, respect, teamwork, communication skills and accountability for self growth. These habits acquired at a crucial young age are vital for shaping our athletes into young bright men of the future.
This program has been designed to provide a pathway to other endeavours post their higher education studies. Past students who have completed our HBHS program have ventured into different professional pathways.
Our HBHS program required commitment. This is not for everybody. If you feel you have what it takes - make an enquiry and an AYFI representative will contact you.

When I first began the program, I was playing park football. The program has assisted in my improvement which became evident as my ability began to grab the attention of coaches from higher divisions. An opportunity arose for me to play in the NSW National Premier League 2 which I thank the program for.
Since joining the program I have progressed from playing park football to playing in the NSW National Premier League 2. I owe credit to the coaches and the facilities that the program offers us as it has helped me consistently improve my game and play at higher levels.
I love the program! Since joining the program my first touch, vision, game awareness and speed have all improved. I am now travelling to England with the Australian Youth Football Institute to showcase my ability to elite teams. If it was not for the improvement and progress I made through the program I would not have the confidence to go and play on the World’s stage.
The program has enabled me to identify my strengths and weaknesses in football and the potential I have to reach my goals. We improve physically, technically and also mentally as the state of the art facilities and experienced coaches enforce a positive and focused mindset. I love the program and am so glad I got to be a part of it throughout my secondary school years.
