Lions Footy Frenzy

Brisbane Lions Footy Frenzy is the primary promotional program delivered by AFL Queensland Development Staff. Lions Footy Frenzy engages primary schools across the Lions Zone to teach students basic skills including kicking, marking and handballing along with playing modified games to encourage students to play within their school team or their Junior Community Club.  

In 2017 Lions Footy Frenzy was rolled out by AFL Queensland staff to over 45,000 students from Brisbane to Bundaberg and out to Toowoomba and the Darling Downs, engaging students from Prep -  Year 6 along with teachers who are pivotal to promoting the game at a grassroots level.

School Ambassador Program

Driving participation through schools wouldn’t happen without the passion and energy teachers have to promote the game of Australian Rules across Primary and Secondary Schools. In partnership with AFL Queensland the Brisbane Lions work to reward and acknowledge the great work teachers do in helping students play our great game.

Each year teachers are invited to attend games at The Gabba, get involved in Masterclass sessions and a special number are rewarded for their hard work and dedication through the AFL School Ambassador of the Year awards.

The School Ambassador (AFLSA) program aims to resource, recognise, motivate and reward teachers who strongly promote the game of Australian football in their school and their community. 

The main expectations of an AFL School Ambassador include:

  • Provide a point of contact for the distribution of information to teachers, parents and school children
  • Assist in the distribution of resources to teachers and sports PE coordinators ensuring schools have the required equipment to complete an AFL program
  • Implement AFL education packages in schools and professionally develop staff where necessary
  • Assist the AFL in the promotion of AFL competitions within the school and in local community groups
  • Ensure the school is participating in all football programs available
  • Liaise with other Ambassadors if possible to develop a competition based program within their school sporting region
  • Promotion of football programs in media/school newsletter
  • To be a positive role model
  • Liaise where possible with local Auskick centres and Junior Football clubs to promote student participation.
  • Liaise with local Junior Club and or local Auskick coordinator to assist with the promotion of Australian Football within the local community.
