2014/15 Australia Post AFL Community Camps

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

The AFL is pleased to announce the locations for the 2014/2015 Australia Post AFL Community Camps, with St Kilda Football Club to kick off the first camp in December on the Mornington Peninsula and then overseas in New Zealand.

More than 800 AFL players will take the game to regional and rural communities around Australia and New Zealand in the lead up to the 2015 Toyota AFL Premiership Season.

AFL General Manager People, Customer and Community, Dorothy Hisgrove said the Australia Post AFL Community Camps were about players giving back to the community and sharing with fans their passion for Australia’s Game.  

“The Australia Post AFL Community Camps are a significant event in the AFL pre-season calendar as they provide fans across Australia with an opportunity to meet and engage with their favourite players and clubs.

“Starting with St Kilda Football Club, players will carry out training sessions and visit schools, local football clubs, nursing homes and hospitals, bringing people together and promoting participation in footy at a grass roots level.

“Fans are the most important people in our game and these camps are a terrific chance for AFL players to acknowledge their loyalty and support first-hand,” said Ms Hisgrove.

Australia Post General Manager Community Relations, Andrea Pearman said: “Through the Australia Post AFL Community Camps we are proud to help provide access to our national game to communities and individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to enjoy everything the AFL and its clubs has to offer.”

“The role of sport in building thriving, healthy and connected communities cannot be underestimated.  It brings everyone together in a common interest - whether they are playing, watching or supporting sport, all are welcome.”
