About the Flying Boomerangs

The Flying Boomerangs is a personal, football and leadership program that is exposed to the best training, coaching and mentoring, as well as personal development opportunities during the NAB AFL Under 16 Championships. The Boomerangs is more than a football program, it prepares the next generation of young Indigenous leaders with the skills, qualities and experiences to become positive role models in their own families and communities.
