Coach Development Initiative

16 June 2022

AFL Barwon are excited by an initiative led by AFL Vic to support and develop local club coaches in the region. This is a fantastic opportunity for clubs to upskill their coaches and provide adequate support. 

This is a FREE program that offers support to all clubs delivered by local male and female coaches Michael King and Shannon Knox who have worked in both community and elite pathways. 


AFL Victoria Coach Developers Purpose: 

AFL Vic Coach Developers aim to deliver coach learning methods (coach education, facilitation, assessing, mentoring and reflection) with club coaches within their coaching context at club level. Trained coach developers will work with clubs and club coaches to identify individual performance & learning needs, while targeting whole-club coaching development of coaches within participating clubs. Coaching behavioural change and creating a ‘player centred’ environment are key focuses of Coach Developers. 

To help us understand your clubs coaching needs and wants, please complete the survey (coaches and coordinators to complete).
