The James Hird Academy is comprised of three key development groups with tailored programs designed for specific age groups.

The fleet of Baby Bombers is comprised of members aged nine or younger, the Flight Squad focuses on members aged 10 to 15 who are starting to get serious about their football commitments, and the Acceleration Group is made up of members aged 16 or older who are on the cusp of embarking upon a potential AFL career.
