AFL School Ambassadors play a vital role in ensuring that Australian Football in at the forefront of sports in their schools. Every year AFL Victoria hosts an AFL School Ambassadors Launch coinciding with the first round of the Nab Cup between Richmond and Melbourne at Eithad Stadium.

This year we invited the two competing AFL Club’s Community Managers to present on the many school initiatives that they provide for schools. Debbie Lee, Melbourne Football Club Community Manager provided a through presentation of the many programs they deliver in schools mainly in the South Eastern Corridor of Melbourne.  Todd Sigalas, Richmond Football Club Community Manager also gave an informative presentation providing the AFLSA plenty of opportunities to engage with his club in particular in relation to the KGI

The evening was a great success thanks to our guest speakers and the interest of the AFL School Ambassadors in attendance who went away with up to date information and ideas to implement in their schools in 2014.
