AFL Rising Stars Program17/08/2016
The AFL Rising Stars Program is a talent identification and development program that supports AFL players from a young age (grass roots) through to elite development programs. If you’re interested in pursuing AFL as a long-term goal, the AFL Rising Stars Program Booklet provides a comprehensive guide to help support your journey and get involved. “Each year the AIS-AFL Academy offers 30 12-month scholarships to young athletes eligible to represent their state or territory at the NAB AFL Under-16 Championships but ineligible for the draft in that year.” It’s highly recommended that you read the booklet as the scholarships are just one part of the support that’s provided to get you to your AFL goals.
