Crowe Horwath LFC Academy

The Crowe Horwath LFC Academy was set-up to help develop our most talented Launceston FC juniors and give them the highest chance possible of being drafted to the AFL. The Launceston Football Club currently have 5 ex-juniors on AFL lists, with 7 having been drafted over the last 10 years, the highest of any Tasmanian club.

The program is based around 4 key principle areas: skill, education, fitness/diet, injury prevention and sessions are conducted by our senior coaching staff, current selected senior players and past Launceston FC champions.

Talent is identified by two separate bodies – the Launceston Football Club and AFL Tasmania. Players in the state academy programs are automatic inclusions into the LFC academy, whilst we also hand pick selected juniors outside the state academy programs from within the club itself, to be included.

Current LFC Players in State Academy Squads:

  • Chayce Jones (U18 – Tassie Mariner)
  • Jake Hinds (U18 – Tassie Mariner)
  • Ryan Tyrrell (U18 – Tassie Mariner)
  • Connor Smith (U18 – Tassie Mariner)
  • Casey Brown (U18 – Tassie Mariner)
  • Ethan Conway (U18 – Tassie Mariner)
  • Tim Auckland (U18 – Tassie Mariner)
