Richmond will build further on the connection the Korin Gamadji Institute (KGI) has created with regional Victorian Aboriginal communities, with its Next Generation Academy Program - the Richmond Academy.

Following the launch of the Next Generation AFL Club Academies in early 2016, Richmond has focused its Academy engagement and talent identification to the Goulburn Murray, Bendigo, Sunraysia, and North Central areas of Victoria.

The region includes AFL Central, Central Murray, Goulburn Murray, North East Border, Sunraysia and Wimmera Mallee – the Murray Bushrangers and Bendigo Pioneers catchments.

The Richmond Academy will introduce the game of Australian Rules to both boys and girls, aged 5-18 years, who are from Indigenous and multicultural backgrounds, and provide pathways for coaches, umpires, and administrators.
