Established in 2010, the QBE Sydney Swans Academy aims to increase the talent pool in NSW where AFL is an introduced sport. 

The Academy involves 600 boys, aged 11 to 19 years of age, who participate in an elite long-term development program under the guidance and support of professional coaches. The specialised program is tailored specifically to each age group and provides a first-class training environment.

The program operates in ten regions across the Swans Academy zone including Sydney Metro; Sydney North; Sydney South; Illawarra; Northern Beaches; Central Coast; Hunter; Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour and Grafton. 

The Academy provides the Sydney Swans with opportunities to draft home-grown talent and all clubs in the AFL competition have access to recruit graduates of the program. Former Academy members Brandon Jack; Sam Naismith; Dan Robinson; Isaac Heeney; Jordan Foote and Callum Mills have all progressed to the senior list at the Sydney Swans, joining Jarrad McVeigh, Kieren Jack and Dane Rampe, who were born and raised in the Swans Academy zone.
