AFL Victoria Coach Education Programs 

Recently the AFL has undertaken a review of coach education programs, the re-accreditation process and regional coach support on a national level.  The AFL have developed a centralised Coach.AFL learning management system which includes a national membership database, high quality interactive coach resources, online coach education courses for all levels of coaching and a number of member benefits. Coach.AFL will be an exclusive resource centre providing a range of learning opportunities for all AFL accredited coaches.

A feature of the annual re-accreditation process will require each coach to attain a number points each year to be eligible for accreditation renewal – these points can be attained through a variety of means including coaching a team, completing short courses on the Coach.AFL Learning Management System, attending national conferences, seminars/workshops etc

 

Coach Education Courses:

All new coaches will be required to complete the following compulsory requirements:

  • Create a profile on Coach.AFL and complete contact details
  • Payment of annual fee of $49.50
  • Accept and agree to the Coach’s Code of Conduct (Annual acceptance required)
  • Complete online Foundation Course specific to the age of the playing group
    (senior, youth or junior), including the concussion module.
  • Complete online module on Mental Health
  • Attend a Face-to-Face foundation workshop

The accreditation is for one year not four as previously.

 

Re-accreditation (recently expired accreditation)

To re-accredit coaches will have to:

  • Create a profile on Coach.AFL and complete contact details
  • Payment of annual fee of $49.50
  • Accept and agree to the Coach’s Code of Conduct (Annual acceptance required)
  • Complete an online module on Mental Health
  • Attend a Face-to-Face foundation workshop [optional]

Note: Existing coaches can still attend Face-to-Face foundation workshops, but these won’t be compulsory, but once completed will contribute points to a coaches’ eligibility to re-accredit for the following season.

The re-accreditation process will now be an online process on an annual basis rather than over a four year period.

 

Existing Coaches (current accreditation valid)

All coaches who wish to coach in season 2021 who are an existing coach with 1-2 years left on their accreditation will be required to complete the following compulsory requirements:

  • Create a profile on Coach.AFL and complete contact details
  • No payment required
  • Accept and agree to the Coach’s Code of Conduct (Annual acceptance required)
  • Complete an online module on Respect & Responsibility
  • Attend a Face-to-Face foundation workshop [optional]

Note: All coaches are encouraged to attend workshops, seminars, forums etc. which aren’t compulsory but are important for coaching development.
