AFL Victoria’s Indigenous Programs have an ongoing commitment to Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander communities throughout the state of Victoria using Australian Football as the vehicle to promote healthy lifestyles/ wellbeing, education, employment, leadership including talent pathways, skill and game development.
The objective of these programs is to develop Indigenous participant’s football and leadership skills whilst also exploring their cultural identity. This is achieved through education on the AFL Indigenous Programs Leadership pillars – resilience, decision making, communication and identity/ culture and most importantly respect and responsibility.
Our programs and initiatives are aimed to support, guide and develop Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders participants both male and female through their football journey’s both on and off the field. From NAB Auskick transitioning through juniors into senior competitions in community football, and for some the elite AFL level (being drafted to an AFL club).
