GHFA runs Academy training squads for Under 8 to Under 12.
Players must be registered with a GHFA Club team thus making it a GHFA only Academy.
The GHFA Academy is recognised as the benchmark in elite association development. This is where we develop the most talented players within the association, with our high level technical programs, to give them the best chance at selection in our SAP (Skill Acquisition Program) and Youth Teams. This is where the best get to train with the best and gives players a higher level of coaching so that they may develop as football players. Players stay playing with their club teams but are given additional development in the Academy.
Registrations are now open for the 2018 GHFA Academy trials.
To be eligible to trial, all players must be registered for a GHFA Club in 2018
