The AFL Victoria School Holiday Program introduces both boys and girls who are turning 5 and turning no older than 12 in the year they register to the basic skills of Australian Football.

It builds on the skills of children who have already been introduced to the game and also teaches children with limited to no experience of Australian Football to the skills of the game. NO experience is necessary; this is the perfect place to give it a try.

The program is a fun and inclusive program for boys and girls and includes skill development, fun activities, minor games and modified games. The holiday program provides a fun, exciting and safe environment for children to develop their skills whilst interacting with others.

The program is delivered by Level 1 accredited coaches, with a coaching ratio of no more than 20 participants per coach.

Modified program options:

Access All Abilities Holiday Program *See Venue Map for available locations and for Session Information. (Subject to numbers)
