The Girls and Boys Tier 1 Academy squad play as the Tai Tam Tigers and offers our talented young players the opportunity to train all year and to compete against some of the Territory’s best junior players in the HKJFL (Hong Kong Junior Football League). The boys also compete in the HKFA Golden Age Leagues. Tier 1 Academy squad players are expected to train 2 times per week with matches on Saturdays. The Boys Tier 1 Academy starts at Under 9’s and goes through Under 14. The Girls are made up of three squads, the U10's, U12's and the U14's/15's .
Within the Tier 1 squads, there are two teams - The Premiership team and the Championship team. These teams are not fixed and players can move between these teams. Please see the Team Selection section of the Handbook for more information on how these teams are selected.
*U15 Girls are also able to participate with the U14 squad if they are not participating in the HKFA U18's league.
