The Hornets Academy Skills Sessions are designed to develop players skills. The Hornets Academy program utilises the skills and knowledge of our Academy Coaches (Level 1 Accredited Coaches). Two coaches for each age group ensure the beginner through to the advanced player receive the attention required to develop their skills. Players are categorised by year of birth and ability to maximise development:
