Hurricanes Academy delivers a ground breaking Sports and Educational programme. Working in partnership with our educational partners bringing youth the opportunity to gain full time employment in coaching coupled with gaining valuable academic qualifications.

With Sports Licensed coaches coaching and professional tutors, we endeavor to achieve sporting and academic excellence on and off the pitch.

Our students will be based at our training centres for four days of the week. Our educational program offers a unique opportunity for students to train and study in an environment that nurtures both their academic and sporting excellence. With the help of our coaches and their experience, Hurricanes Academy ensures that the highest quality of education is maintained.



Beginners Age U5-9

At grassroots level, the athletes are taught different sporting disciplines using age appropriate lesson plans and techniques.

The athletes are coached on the basic fundamentals of their chosen discipline in a fun and interactive manner.

Sessions are done twice a week with Saturdays being set aside for academy matches for the 7-9 age group, the 4-6 age group will play monthly tournaments against similar academy sides.

Each player is awarded a Completion Certificate at the annual Gala Awards.



Intermediate Age U10-14

This is a progression from grassroots level.

At this stage, we introduce semi-competitive training while keeping sessions age appropriate for all sporting disciplines which include:

  • Technical skill enhancement.
  • Health and fitness.
  • Sportsmanship and teamwork.
  • Advanced sports mental stimulation.
  • Entry level boot camps.

Again, our players receive Course Completion Certificates at the end of the year with more specific awards such as Player of the Year, Players’ Player of the Year and Most improved player.



Adolescent Age U15-19

At this level, competitive training will be introduced so as to create an environment that acts as stepping stone for higher levels of competition such as Club Sports and School District Leagues.

It is compulsory for the athletes to participate in at least one training session per week. Failure to do so will result in the athlete not being part of the weekly league matches.

All athletes associated with the Academy will benefit vastly from our training and sporting facilities. There also is the additional benefit of sporting trials for excelling and outstanding athletes with various well known clubs.

Our Academy also exposes its athletes through life changing sports related tours in and around South Africa and abroad.

For those athletes that excel at this level can also earn a spot in the Hurricanes Sporting Club.
