NAB Pathways

The journey for a junior player through to the elite game can vary wildly. Programs and pathways have been created as a way of streamlining this transition, and supporting each individual despite their unique background. The Pathways series looks at current AFL stars and the turning points in their lives; on and off field. From the early Auskick days through to the breakout NAB Under 18’s Championships ‘moment’ that thrust them into the limelight and saw their name called out on draft night, these stories are told from the perspective of the player and complemented by input and insight from those that have shared and contributed to them realising their dream.
