Laguntas is a program for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men, which supports cultural strengthening, leadership, health, education and training and employment pathways.
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 2018, the Laguntas will play exhibition matches against different opposition teams.
The program is an initiative of AFL SportsReady, AFL Victoria, and the Korin Gamadji Institute/Richmond Football Club.
The Laguntas Program is supported by the Australian Football League and Probuild.
