Recently the AFL has undertaken a review of all its coach education programs, including the re-accreditation process and regional coach support.
The AFL are developing 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.
All coaches who wish to coach in season 2018 and have an accreditation which expired on the 31/12/2017 will be required to reaccredit. The reaccreditation process will now be managed online on an annual basis rather than over a four year period. This will be available from March 1st 2018 – in order to communicate the reaccreditation process please ensure you provide an updated email address to your AFL Victoria football development manager.
At the regional level AFL Victoria will also deliver a range of face to face seminars and workshops for coaches to continue their personal growth and development. These seminars/workshops will attain points for the coach as part of their annual reaccreditation process. Other support and education provided will include club coaching coordinators, coach mentors and recognition of outstanding coaching achievements.
All accredited coaches will have access to the Coach.AFL Learning Management System and gain access to the high quality interactive coach resources and member benefits.
