The North Melbourne Football Club’s Next Generation in Schools (NGS) program is a joint initiative with AFL Tasmania and the Tasmanian Football Council which aims to inspire passion and participation for football amongst boys and girls across the state. The NGS program offers a range of primary and high school programs that will allow AFL School Ambassadors (AFLSA) to engage all students from K-6 and 7-10 in our great game.
Next Gen in Schools Programs:
AFL School Ambassadors are passionate teachers who commit to actively and positively promote our great game in their school. AFL School Ambassadors are supported with the following:
> Professional development sessions
> Role description
> Resources and subsidies
> Access to intra-school and inter-school programs and competitions
> Lesson ideas and activities

AFL Community Support Ticketing Program
The AFL receives many requests to assist with ticketing from a wide range of community groups including schools, junior football clubs, youth and church groups and formal organisations supporting specific disadvantaged or disability groups. The AFL recognises it has a corporate responsibility to the broader community and therefore provides community groups with access to our great game via the AFL Community Support Ticketing Program. Through this program we are able to offer access to selected games* throughout the year via AFL “sponsored” ticketing. Please check the AFL’s website from March for further details.
