Hamilton Olympic have the largest representation in the 2019 Talent Support Programme

2018 saw Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) commence the Talent Support Program (TSP) for boys in the 13s and 14s age groups. This year they have also introduced a programme for boys in Under 10 SAP.

The aim of the TSP is to raise the technical standard of players in the National Premier League (NPL) environment..

These squads will come together to train with the NNSWF High Performance coaches once a week, in addition to their regular club training, for a 30-week duration.

The club have many talented players not selected in the current crop, but it would be no surprise if more HOFC players were invited into the various squads later in the season (as happened for several players last season)

The club would like to congratulate the following players who have been selected in the 3 age groups. All at the club are proud of your continued efforts, and that you have been selected to represent the club in this programme. Hamilton Olympic have by far the largest representation of any clubs in the Youth NPL, which is a credit to all the hard work of our Youth NPL and SAP coaches, headed by our Technical Director, Alex Tagaroulias. This is an indicator of our on-going success in Youth Development.
