Become a Coach

The AFL considers the role and the responsibilities of coaches to be of paramount importance in the development of players at all levels of the game. The AFL recognises that coaches have significantly more influence upon players than any other person in the game and they play a key role in the enjoyment and retention of players.

The AFL Level 1 Youth and Senior Online Coaching Course is designed to enable coaches, or prospective coaches, to improve their skills and knowledge about the art and science of coaching. It also forms part of the AFL’s overall coach accreditation program for beginning coaches of youth (secondary school aged) and senior (open-aged) footballers.
