U16 Skipper into AFL Academy

Central U16 Captain Jackson Hately was inducted into the AFL Level 1 Academy after some solid performances in the U16 National Championships. The Level 1 Academy program is headed up by former Adelaide FC coach Brenton Sanderson, South Australia has 7 representatives in the level 1 program. The induction  for the players was held at Adelaide Oval on the 3rd of August, where the players and parents were given a rundown of the program and what potentially awaits them in 2 years’ time when draft day arrives. The boys will attend 3 camps in the first year of the program, with the last camp being held in New Zealand and play Anzac Day wearing the Australian jumper against a combined New Zealand side. The players undergo strict rules and expectations in the program and if they are unable to conform to these could find themselves out of the program.

Jackson has played mainly as a key position player throughout the SANFL U16 program, where he played 7 games kicking 13 goals and getting in the best players on all but 2 occasions.

Jackson has also played U18’s when his commitments with Trinity College allow, at U18 level his role changes from a key position player to an on baller, he has a fantastic work ethic and work rate around the ground with a hunger to be the best player he can be. His maturity made it an easy selection for the coaching staff to appoint him captain for the U16 program in 2016, he is also a very accomplished basketballer representing South Australia last year in the U15’s.

The Central District Football Club would like to wish Jackson well in the program and look forward to seeing him develop over the coming years.
