Junior Football Academy Philosophy
The AFL Central Murray Academy is a program that will work closely on player’s fundamental skills, their understanding of the game using game sense training and player’s ability to further themselves by encouraging correct training standards, training and game preparation and lifestyle choices that keep the doors open for talented footballers who wish to play elite level football.
As a junior coach, our end goal is to ensure young players get the best out of themselves. If they go on to play AFL it’s a bonus but we would be just as thrilled to see them playing good senior football and being respected members of the community.
