Train Like a Bomber

Train Like a Bomber is the first full online program available via the Flight Deck, offering eight lessons for secondary physical education students that are aligned with the national curriculum standards. 

It has been established in partnership with Leaders of Evolution following the club’s highly successful program of the same name that sees students spend a day at the NEC Hangar for a unique experiential learning program.

This digital progression brings the NEC Hangar to the classroom and provides exclusive access to the inner workings of an AFL club. Students and teachers will be provided with digital and practical learning opportunities associated with high-performance environments and athlete development both on and off the field.

The Train Like a Bomber program includes a teacher and student guidebook covering the following topics:

  • Physiological testing
  • Lifecycle of the elite athlete
  • Physiological training
  • Movement
  • Culture
  • Performance psychology
  • Nutrition
  • Game day
