Carlton players will take the game to Northern Victoria in February, as part of the Australia Post AFL Community Camps. 

The AFL has announced locations for this summer’s camps, with Carlton set to take part in a community camp in Shepparton from February 17-18.

AFL General Manager People Customer and Community, Dorothy Hisgrove said the Australia Post AFL Community Camps were about players giving back to the community and sharing with fans their passion for Australia’s Game.  

“The Australia Post AFL Community Camps are a significant event in the AFL pre-season calendar as they provide fans across Australia with an opportunity to meet and engage with their favourite players and clubs.

“Players will carry out training sessions and visit schools, local football clubs, nursing homes and hospitals, bringing people together and promoting participation in footy at a grass roots level.

“Fans are the most important people in our game and these camps are a terrific chance for AFL players to acknowledge their loyalty and support first-hand,” said Ms Hisgrove.

Australia Post General Manager Community Relations, Andrea Pearman said:  “Through the Australia Post AFL Community Camps we are proud to help provide access to our national game to communities and individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to enjoy everything the AFL and its clubs has to offer.”

“The role of sport in building thriving, healthy and connected communities cannot be underestimated.  It brings everyone together in a common interest - whether they are playing, watching or supporting sport, all are welcome.”
