2021 SAP Program Guide


Holland Park Hawks FC will offer programs for players in the U9, U10, U11, and U12 age groups.  Boys and girls are welcome in our teams.

We will play two teams in each age group (Advanced SAP and HP Hawks FC Academy) where possible, or we will offer a merged age group team if numbers do not allow for a full team in one age group.  One team (SAP) will play in the relevant FQ SAP League and the other (HP Hawks FC Academy) will play in the highest next level competition.  Both teams will be coached under the same Head Coach, using the same Advanced SAP protocol, will train over the same number of days and will use the same periodisation program and pay the same fees.  We will be seeking additional tournament/carnival opportunities and inter-club games for Hawks FC Academy Teams to participate in for extra playing exposure (due to the later start of the Komodo season) and players will be invited to train/play up in SAP teams as allowed under the SAP competition rules (subject to change).

The merging of these two programs is aimed at lessening the skill gap between players in Advanced SAP and players in community teams.  Training the Academy players to the same level for the same number of training sessions allows skill levels to improve and ensures they stay in touch with SAP performance for future SAP selection.   We will evaluate all players per SAP and will continue to assess our Academy offering to ensure it offers a genuine pathway for our players.
