2024 AFL Europe Level 2 Coaching Course

AFL Europe is excited to announce that in 2024 it will deliver an AFL Level 2 Coach Accreditation program to continue the development of selected coaches actively involved in the European game.

The AFL Level 2 Coach Accreditation is a blended learning program that ideally consists of both online and face-to-face course components, however the program can be completed fully online if required. Note that all participants will need to film sessions / game day coaching as part of the program.

Each session will be guided by a guest presenter (from either the AFL, Australian State Leagues or within the AFL Europe community) who has extensive coaching experience and has been approved by the AFL National Coaching managers.

The program will consists of 4 x 2 hour sessions with additional requirements to complete pre-program tasks and assessments outside of these sessions.
