DraftStar Star Camp Fundamentals


DraftStar Star Camps focus on five core areas:

  1. Elite level skills and fitness development: We are the only group authorised to conduct AFL standardised testing that can identify individual strengths and weaknesses (only at 2 day Assumption Star Camp). Elite level coaching techniques are then used to develop athletes skill wise using AFL drills designed by our AFL ambassadors.
  2. Football education: A mixture of match simulation and classroom sessions are conducted to increase general Football knowledge and to help athletes who attend understand the game of AFL like the elite players.
  3. Character and leadership development: These are top of the list for AFL recruiters. DraftStar Star Camps focus heavily on developing each athlete as a young man or woman so that when they leave the program they have gained life skills as well as Football skills. Each Camp has one specific leadership focus which may include: public speaking, team work, communications skills or goal setting.
  4. Preparation:  DraftStar Star Camps have a truly holistic approach, each Camp focuses on one aspect of an AFL Footballer's preparation. This may include sessions on: nutrition, hydration and recovery, warm ups, rehab or strength training.
  5. Fun:  We never lose sight of the fact that the athletes who come to our camps are kids who love their footy. Life-long friendships will be forged at DraftStar Star Camps, with memories to last a lifetime.



*It is our ambition to have a current AFL/VFL player available in attendance at every event for the kids to meet and learn off, but please be sure to check when booking so not to be disappointed.

My son Noah attended the camp at Essendon and I wanted to let all you guys at DraftStar know what a wonderful time he had. The program offers so much for the boys, it’s not only about athletics but also gives them great role models, to inspire them to become the best men they can be in our community. Teaching them to have self worth and qualities like RESPECT and BELIEF is so important. I could go on and on but I just want to say thank you for developing such a great program.
