The Indonesia Garudas are a team of young Indonesian AFL players from clubs, schools and orphanages across Indonesia. The Garudas have entered the 2017 AFL International Cup, to be played over two weeks in Melbourne, pitting themselves against the best national teams from around the world.
The squad of 28 Indonesian players and coaches will mix with AFL players and officials from Australia and around the world, as well as attending coaching and umpiring training courses during their time in Melbourne.
Some of the players now teach and promote AFL through weekly clinics at over 20 local schools and orphanages throughout Jakarta and Balikpapan, and their participation at the AFL International Cup aims to strengthen their understanding of the game, and further expose them to the culture and benefits of team sports.
