AFL New Zealand is launching a brand-new elevated Academy experience; the AFLNZ Academy Footy Frenzy descends upon North Harbour Stadium in Auckland from April 13th to 15th. This action-packed weekend will provide an unforgettable time for young talents looking to immerse themselves into AFL.
Throughout the weekend, the spotlight will be on showcasing the athleticism and camaraderie of our budding players while developing their skills to new heights. Participants can engage in a series of AFL Games, skill development sessions, educational workshops, and combine testing. Results from these tests will be sent to the AFL Talent team in Australia, potentially opening doors to exciting opportunities.
Designed not only to forge exceptional AFL players but also to nurture well-rounded athletes, the educational workshops delve into the secrets of becoming a better athlete both on and off the field. Within these sessions participants will also learn how to look after their bodies with specialized training recovery sessions, ensuring peak performance throughout the weekend.
Participants will have the chance to explore the intricacies of AFL skills under the guidance of seasoned coaches. This unique event not only celebrates the sport but also fosters a sense of community among participants. It’s more than a weekend of competition; it’s a weekend of fun, learning, and self-improvement.
Exclusive AFLNZ apparel awaits participants, solidifying their membership in a community that shares their passion for the sport. Meals will be provided throughout the weekend to keep energy levels high so the players can keep performing at their best through every activity.
Participants will also get to watch the final round of the AFLNZ Premiership, immersing themselves in the excitement of high-stakes play. This weekend is more than just a showcase; it’s also an opportunity to pave the way for greater things, with a chance for players to position themselves to represent New Zealand in the U17’s Pacific Cup (Sunshine Coast, Australia) or the U15’s Oceania Cup (Suva, Fiji) at the end of the year, catering to both male and female participants.
The AFL Academy Footy Frenzy Weekend is not merely an event; it’s a gateway to exciting possibilities and an experience that every young athlete will treasure.
