Australian Football League

Worawa has teamed with the Australian Football League (AFL) to create the Worawa AFL Sports Academy. The primary purpose of the Academy is to utilise sport for enhanced educational outcomes for Aboriginal adolescents. The Worawa AFL Sports Academy is based on the philosophy of a holistic education utilising an integrated Education, Culture and Wellbeing format. Whilst Australian Rules football (AFL) forms the foundation ‘sport’ underpinning the development of the sports academy, the Academy program includes sports other than Australian Rules football ranging from team sports to individual fitness development and outdoor recreational pursuits. All activities however have a focus upon physical and mental wellbeing and consistent academic performance.
