About the Multicultural Program –
AFL NSW/ACT wants to make Aussie Rules the game for everyone by creating strong relationships with diverse communities, removing barriers to participation and developing new ways for people to engage with the game.
The Multicultural Program has four main goals:
– Awareness & Training
PROGRAMS & INITIATIVES

Multicultural Programs in Schools
AFL NSW/ACT is committed to growing the game within our diverse communities. Several programs have been developed for schools with a high portion of students from Language Backgrounds Other Than English (LOTE).
The primary and high school programs are listed below:
PRIMARY and HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAMS
AFL NSW/ACT aims to engage primary schools with a LOTE percentage of 70% or greater across the state to introduce a new sport to people of diverse backgrounds. The four week program runs all year round and focuses on football activities which build on the child’s fine and gross motor skills. The program also incorporates themes around fair play, team work, harmony and leadership.
Delivered by AFL staff who are culturally sensitive and aware, this program is about breaking down barriers and giving students from high LOTE schools the opportunities to participate and support Australian Football.
