AFLNT school holiday programs are back

The kids having fun at the April school holiday program

The mid-year break is a long one so why not keep the AFL fun going these school holidays!

AFL Northern Territory is pleased to announce the dates and destinations of our June/July 2017 Holiday Programs.

AFLNT’s Holiday Programs are open to girls and boys aged 5-12 and will run from 9.00am – 3.00pm these school holidays at venues in Darwin and Palmerston. The day ends with a modified game and some fun on the NT Thunder waterslide.

The AFLNT School Holiday Program consists of a whole day of football fun and these holidays will see participants test their ability in an AFL mini draft camp.

It is held in an inclusive environment that promotes being healthy and making friends, it is designed to suit kids of all skill levels, from those who are completely new to Australian Football, to those youngsters already mastering our great game.

In Alice Springs, the kids can enjoy a three-day multi-sport program with the opportunity to play 5 different sports! The School holiday Sports Carnival will run Monday 26 – Wednesday 28 June at the Netball Centre in Alice Springs.

Kids aged 6 – 14 are encouraged to attend.

Holiday Programs are a great way for kids to brush up on their skills and have fun while their parents are busy elsewhere. 

Everyone is welcome to come along for an action-packed day of footy fun.
