HOW OUR AFL CAMP IS STRUCTURED
Step 1 - Meet and Greet
Our Head Coach will greet parents/carers and players at the Sign-In Station at the designated Drop Off/Pick Up location.
Step 2 - Players Placed into Groups
Coaches organise players into appropriate age and/or ability groups. Coaches ensure friends and siblings are grouped together. Coaches do move players from original groups into different cohorts during the camp to maximise player satisfaction. These decisions are made in consultation with other coaches and the players involved. We adopt coaching ratios of 1:12 to ensure participation and enjoyment for all.
Step 3 - Implementation
Coaches take their allocated group of players through the AFLCoaching Program. Scroll below to find details on features of our AFL Coaching Program implemented at our AFL Camps.

At the completion of each day of the AFL Camp, our Head Coach will greet parents/carers and oversee the collection of all players at the Sign Out Station at the designated Drop Off/Pick Up location.
