AFL Max, Australia’s first immersive footy skills and entertainment centre, is launching the Rory Sloane Academy just in time for the school holidays on October 10 and 11.
The exclusive interactive sessions, hosted by Sloane, will take youngsters from 5-12 years old through a jam-packed session of skills, fitness, mini-games, team challenges, aerial training, health education, breathing exercises, a simulated press conference and more.
The Rory Sloane Academy will use the extensive, state of the art facilities of AFL Max which brings together the latest technology and traditional skills development tools for players and fans of all ages, all under one 5,500m2 roof.
Speaking at the launch of his Academy at AFL Max, Sloane says, “When I was a kid I used to love going programs on school holidays and I thought it actually made me a better footballer. I’ve always wanted to do a program for kids based on my learnings of being an AFL player. I now get the chance to do it at AFL Max, where we’ll be making the most of this fantastic facility to give these youngsters the support they need to develop their skills and understand more about the sport of AFL. Most of all we’re going to have a heap of fun and make sure they leave AFL Max with big smiles on their faces.”
The Rory Sloane Academy will take place across two days with one age group attending on each day.
Thursday, 10 October will give 5-8 year olds the chance to build their abilities with Sloane while 9-12 year olds will get to share their passion for the game with the Crows’ skipper on Friday, October 11. Both sessions run from 3pm – 6pm at a cost of $99 per participant.
Notably $5 of each booking will be donated to Rory and Belinda Sloane’s Lion Warrior Foundation, helping to fund vital and lifesaving stillbirth research.
Along with the day of training, attendees of the first-ever Rory Sloane Academy sessions this October will receive an AFL Max Training Pack filled with goodies including a branded water bottle, boot bag, wristband, training singlet and will also enjoy a post-session dinner.
For those who are not able to attend the Rory Sloane Academy, AFL Max will be open throughout the school holidays for kids of all ages to practice their skills.
