HITP includes both elite camps and sessions in the lead up to trials. All sessions are included in representative fees.

Part of your representative agreement is to attend HITP Rep camps in January, April and July. If you are unable to attend due to family holidays or injury please let us know. All U12-U18 Representative players to attend.
U12 Rep Rookie athletes (non-rep, local competition players) are selected from our Representative trials. While not selected in a Hornets Representative team, the participants have been recognised as players of potential and our coaches are excited at the prospects of their development.
REP ROOKIE SQUADS
The Rep Rookie program has been established to ensure players have the best chance to reach their full potential. The program consists of regular elite training sessions and two carnivals to test their new skills. Additional details below.
No. Officially Rep Rookie athletes are not an active Representative Player. Therefore the ‘rep rule’ known in local competition does not apply to Rep Rookie athletes. In addition, they are eligible to play in correct age group ie U9s, U10s, U11s or U12s as per year of birth.
