Vikings AFL Program of Excellence

The Vikings AFL Program Mission, “Bringing Australian Football and School Communities together to improve student educational outcomes and grow the game of Australian Football” forms the foundation for our participation in the wide range of activities.

Players will have access to an excellent level of competition designed by AFL Queensland to allow ‘Schools of Excellence’ students to play in a premier schools competition. This is only afforded to students in the Excellence Schools across Queensland, and at Victoria Point we are very proud to be continuing in this elite group. “The Schools of Excellence competition is designed to foster the development of Australian Football by providing students from secondary schools with the opportunity to participate in an AFL competition that is to provide a fun, friendly environment concerned with the development of the game and students participating” (AFLQ 2015). 

The Vikings AFL Program is derived from the Health and Physical Education Australian Curriculum whilst also linking elements of the current requirements of the modern Australian Footballer. The focus areas within our curriculum include History of AFL, Anatomy and Physiology, Biomechanics, Training Principles, Officiating, Coaching, Sports Nutrition and Sociology. The over-arching goal is to produce well-rounded student-athletes.
