In October 2016 talented AFL athletes from across Western Sydney were inducted into the Academy’s AFL squad. This program would see the athletes develop their skills and knowledge before gaining the opportunity to move on to the next level in the development pathway. This month the GWS Giants selected their U16 GWS Giants Academy squad with a long list of those selected coming from the Western Sydney Academy of Sports AFL Squad.
The weekend of 7th-9th April saw the Academy’s Hockey, Netball, Golf and boys Softball squads head to the NSW Central Coast to compete against ten other Regional Academies from across the state. Hosted once again by the Central Coast Academy of Sport, the ClubsNSW Academy Games showcased the sporting talent in regional NSW in particular our Western Sydney athletes.
The Academy’s SG Ball and Harold Matthews Rugby League teams have had a tumultuous season thus far but are proving themselves as worthy competitors out on the pitch! In round 6 the squads travelled south-west to Campbelltown Stadium to take on the Western Suburbs Magpies. The Harold Matthews (U16’s) squad played a great game of rugby league coming away with a 30 – 22 win against the Magpies. The game was proceeded by the SG Ball (U18’s) who just went down 17 – 18.
