Player Development

Our focus at Highfields FC is primarily on player participation. While we like to win premierships, it is more important to us that we provide opportunities for players of all skill levels and abilities to enjoy the great game of football.

For those junior players looking to advance their skills, there are the following options:


Skills Acquisition Program (SAP)

This is run by SWQ Zone through SW Thunder FC. This is a selective program with try-outs held at the end of the year for the upcoming year. Again, there is a cost associated with this program. More information can be obtained by contacting SWQ Zone (Football South West Qld) or visiting the SAP Academy Registration page.

Holiday Clinics

Holiday Clinics are run by SWQ Zone. Details of these clinics are listed on the website and will be advertised  on our home page and on Facebook as details become available.

Zone Championships

The Zone Championships are run by Zone each year and are for juniors U12 and older with the championships played over 2 or 3 Sundays. Junior players from these Championships are selected for South West teams to play at the Gold Coast Cup. The SW teams this year are U12, U13, U14/15 and U14 girls. Information is distributed through the Club and also on the Football SouthWest website.
