SANFL’s Diversity High Performance Program will be in full swing this week, with a two full-day professional experiences to be conducted at Thebarton Oval.
On April 28-29, as many as 29 indigenous and multicultural girls (Thursday) and 49 boys (Friday) will have the opportunity to train and play in an elite environment with SANFL’S Talent Department.
After scouring the state conducting a host of regional and metropolitan selection trials, SANFL’s Talent Department will again narrow its list of those to consider once they view players participating in preparation, training and internal match simulation.
SANFL’s Talent Department will then nominate players to the AFL, who will invite these boys and girls to transition into their 2022 National Leadership Programs – Flying Boomerangs and World Team programs for the boys and Woomeras and Medleys Teams for the girls.
The AFL Diversity Talent ID Program, Flying Boomerangs, World Team, Woomeras and Medleys are part of the elite development pathway designed to give participants a unique opportunity to develop their football skills whilst gaining exposure to a leadership and cultural program encouraging their personal development.
SANFL Clubs, Adelaide and Port Adelaide have been invited to attend both sessions as the SANFL Diversity High Performance Camp acts as an important platform for multicultural and indigenous boys and girls to showcase their talent for upcoming development squads, competitions and Next Generation Academies at both local AFL Clubs.
