Overview

The James Hird Academy, launched in 2010, was set-up by the Essendon Football Club aiming to identify, attract and develop young players from non-traditional AFL regions, international zones and father/son opportunities, taking their development through to the drafting age with the ultimate goal of being elevated to the Essendon senior list.


The program continues in 2014, aiming to build on the achievements of the last four years. Amid all the activity of the James Hird Academy, the boys achieved a number of significant personal milestones on the football field, with the most significant being the debut of Joe Daniher.

There is no doubt 2013 was an exciting and extremely rewarding year for the James Hird Academy. We thank all those within the club who have devoted their time and expertise in helping to deliver the program in 2013. 

Once again, we have a number of boys playing at junior state league level, with a few of these likely to represent their state in their particular age group at National Championship level.

We look forward to another successful and promising year in 2014, as the James Hird Academy continues to go from strength to strength.
