February 13, 2024

We're pleased to welcome our latest Duke 4Sport Partner, AFL Queensland. Did you know AFL umpiring can count towards the Duke of Ed?

“Whether considering a career in sport or not, our programs enable Participants to understand the benefits of sport, being active, part of a team and having fun, in a welcoming and inclusive environment.

Umpiring is a great way for Duke of Ed Participants to not only achieve the requirements of the Award, but gain skills that will benefit them outside of football.” - Richie Lyons, AFL Queensland’s Growth, Participation and Operations Manager

“We hope to inspire young people to improve their fitness, mental health and overall well-being, while making a difference in our great game." - Sam Bridges, AFL Queensland’s Umpiring Development Lead
