//AFL All Stars 2009

Well after plenty of preparation time, the squad arrived in Darwin today for the 2009 All Stars Camp and Australian Football League game against the Adelaide Crows. Players have been invited from every AFL club in Australia to participate in this initiative and as the camp starts there are just over 60 indigenous players from every part of Australia here.

Once all players had arrived introduction meetings were held that outlined the aims and objectives of the camp and the benefits that were being sought for all involved in this special program. To assist in recovery for what for many had been an early start followed by a long flight, a session of stretches and water recovery was held at the hotel. The atmosphere is very positive and the players are eager to participate in the process that is being offered. It looks set to be an excellent week.

The camp is very diverse and has been created by the AFL and the AFL Players Association (AFLPA). Monday is predominantly an Indigenous Leadership Program run by a group of professional facilitators. Monday afternoon will see the entire group involved in a training session at the nearby Marrara Stadium. All players programs have had input from their respective clubs and aims to meet the needs of both the individual and that of the AFL All Stars Team.

The Indigenous Leadership Program continues on Tuesday with further light fitness and conditioning activities such as bike and/or swimming. Some players will also undertake their own personal programs as required by their AFL Club.

Wednesday will be predominantly an AFLPA program including topics such as finance and other sessions particular to this group of individuals. The whole squad will be back at Marrara for another skill session on Wednesday afternoon. On the Thursday, all of the players will be involved in visits to the local community where their positions as role models in society is expected to have an enormous influence on the venues that they attend.

The players whom are not playing in the game against the Adelaide Crows will depart Darwin on Thursday afternoon. The remaining 30 players will then be asked to turn their full attention to the upcoming game and all effort will be directed to that preparation.

Friday morning will be a final opportunity for game preparation before heading off to Parliament House in Darwin City. The remaining 28 hours or so will be spent preparing and resting for the game 2009 All Stars vs Adelaide Crows. The game is being held at Marrara Stadium in Darwin and starts at 7.30pm (Darwin time).
