QUESTIONS

The best way to have any of your questions answered in regard to coachAFL is to use the ‘Get in Touch’ form located at the bottom of the Contact page. Once you complete the form, our Coaching Support Team will be in contact with you to ensure you are properly supported and get the help you need!

Absolutely! All you need is to be interested in coaching Australian Football to become a member. We want teachers to be well supported when they teach Australian Football in schools and becoming an accredited member is a great way to start! The benefits of membership apply equally to those coaching in the school environment

No, although CoachAFL is tailored toward the active coach, it does not prevent those interested in pursuing a coaching role and benefiting from membership. If you are interested in becoming a coach, want to learn more about coaching or simply love Australian Football you are more than welcome to join!

We want to make it as accessible as possible for you to become a coach. It is NOT a requirement to attend a face-to-face workshop to become an accredited member of CoachAFL. Although it is not mandatory, we recommend you attend a face-to-face workshop to develop your coaching knowledge. For more information about this, contact our Coaching Support Team!

All relevant information, content and resources for Auskick coaches is available at play.afl/auskick.  It’s not a mandatory requirement for NAB AFL Auskick coaches to hold an AFL coaching accreditation or membership of coachAFL, however for Auskick coaches who wish to become members of coachAFL, the most relevant membership and accreditation is Foundation Junior.

Of course you can! From the time you sign up, your membership will be valid until the 31st December.  Becoming a member is simple and quick to complete, and once you’re in you will gain access to our extensive library of coaching resources.
