HUDDERSFIELD Giants will play their opening Senior Academy fixtures at the YMCA's Laund Hill ground.
The grading games against Wigan on Saturday, February 28, and at home to St Helens the following Saturday will both take place at the venue.
The move has been forced on the club because of the decision to pull out of the planned re-development of the Fartown complex, which has staged Giants second team and juniors games for the past two seasons.
But Giants football manager Stuart Sheard has not ruled out staging other Academy fixtures at Huddersfield RU's Lockwood Park later in the year.
"We are still in discussions with both the YMCA and Huddersfield about our summer fixtures, but at the moment we're just pleased the YM can accommodate us in the short term," said Sheard.
"Our grading games have to be completed by the end of March, so it was important we sorted that out first.
"And we're delighted the YMCA have been able to come to our aid.
"We enjoy a good working relationship with the committee, and the first team spend at least two training sessions up there a week.
"The playing surface is superb and I'm sure the facilities will meet with Rugby Football League approval!
"The same applies with the facilities at Lockwood Park and it would be great if we could come up with agreement with both clubs."
Huddersfield are in the same grading group as Wigan, Saints and Wakefield, with the clubs vying to get into the top division of a re-structured two-division League.
But that won't be easy because of the obvious strength of the competition.
And that means the Giants, who finished in the top half of the Academy Championship last season, could find themselves in a primarily non-Super League club division!
