THE ACADEMY PROGRAM

The curriculum at The Academy is tailored in a way that allows students to take a proactive approach to their education.

Designed for more practical learners, we’re removing the stigma associated with VCAL and proving that a real-world education is the key to success.

The students that enrol at The Academy do so because they are passionate about AFL. For two years, they’ll be placed in an AFL-simulated environment that focuses on personal growth and high performance to prepare them for the next step of their life and football journey.
