Program participants form an all-Indigenous U/18 team playing invitational football games and will lead to genuine access to TAC, VFL and AFL pathways.
Similar to previous years, in 2017, the Laguntas will play three exhibition matches against different opposition teams.
The program is an initiative of AFL SportsReady, AFL Victoria, and the Korin Gamadji Institute/Richmond Football Club.
Up to 40 young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men will engage in a high performance football development program, accessing the KGI for both its facilities, expert staff and pathway programs.
The Laguntas Program is supported by the Federal Government of Australia, the Australian Football League and Probuild.
