The Club was very pleased to launch the Uni Blacks Academy during season 2015 and will be continuing this program in 2019.

The Uni Blacks Academy has been created to identify, nurture and develop young aspiring footballers within the broader club. The Academy places importance on the provision and the building of necessary supports to help beyond that of just the football field, both in a personal and professional sense.

The Club recognises the importance of life balance and as such has built in programs, workshops and people, to guide and monitor this key area.

Consisting of two key components - Our Under 19 team and our Under 21 Scholarship Program - new or existing young players at the Blacks will be given the best developmental opportunities within the scope of the Uni Blacks FC.

The Academy will be headed up by our Under 19 coach, Chris Smith and will be assisted by others who not only have a connection to the Blacks, but have also played footy at the highest level, AFL.
