Lower Hutt City AFC in partnership with the Wellington Phoenix Academy is delighted to announce that we will be running a Talent Development Programme (TDP) for 13-17 yr old boys & girls, along with a Skill Centre (SKC) for 9-12 yr old boys & girls.

These programmes will be based at Fraser Park Sportsville and run for all four school terms in x4 8 week blocks. The programmes will be managed by the Phoenix Academy coaches and focus on building game relevant techniques and skills.

The TDP programme is for LHCAFC registered players only as there is a competition element to this programme on the weekends. This will enable Lower Hutt City AFC to compete in the newly formed Capital Development Leagues in U13, U15 (dual banded to include 14 and 15 year olds) and U17 from 2020.

The SKC programme is open to all players from around the Hutt Valley region, you are welcome to join the programme and continue to play for another club. Priority places will go to LHCAFC registered players first.

If you are not currently registered to LHCAFC but would be interested in the programmes then we would love to hear from you.
