Round 2 Academy Results

Round 2 produced some entertaining games across all regions including the Academy’s first draw.

The academy group and players are continually improving through the development sessions and guidance of their coaches displayed by the way they are using the ball during gameplay.

Each week during the academy players are provided with 3 key points for the games. This provides clear direction for the players and gives them the confidence to apply the new skills they had learnt prior to the games.

A big thank you has to go out to all parents that helped out as officials or managers.

AFL New Zealand would also like to thank AVJennings for their support shown to the AFLNZ Academy.
