Ambassador Program

What is it about?

The AFL Schools Ambassador Program (AFLSA) aims to resource, recognise and reward teachers who strongly promote the game of Australian Football. Importantly, the program aims to establish an alliance between schools and the respective state football bodies to develop and promote Australian Football in the classroom and on the sporting field. 2016 will see the introduction of a tiered system to further recognise the fantastic work undertaken by AFLSA’s. Bronze (Classroom), Silver (School) and Gold (Regional) categories will be used to reward highly engaged AFLSA’s.

Who can join?

Any AFL-passionate primary school or high school teacher can join. We are seeking an ambassador in every school in Australia and, depending on the school size, another AFLSA may be appointed.
