This month, we’re joining Coach AFL, AFLW and the AFL in celebrating Women’s Coaching Month.
Women’s Coaching Month recognises the efforts, achievements and participation of Australian Football female coaches across the world.
We’d love to see teams in Europe share a photo and some words on social media recognising the women who have played a role in coaching, from running drills at training to coaching on game day, at your club.
Tag us in your posts @AFLEurope and we’ll draw one lucky coach at the end of the month to win a free Coaching Board.
You can join in on the celebrations in Australia including a free three-part webinar series run by the AFLW, access a range of new community resources for clubs and coaches to support women in coaching, and a tool kit to support coaches of women & girls.
Tomorrow’s webinar at 11:00AM BST covers the topic of ‘Coaching Women & Girls’ and will feature Brisbane Lions AFLW Premiership Coach, Craig Starcevich, Adelaide Crows AFLW Assistant Coach, Narelle Smit and Williamstown VFLW Assistant Coach, Julia Hay. Register here.
The AFLW also want to hear the stories of women in coaching that have made a significant contribution to the game. You are invited to submit stories via the link here including a summary of the coach along with a photo or video. The AFLW will aim to share these stories amongst its coaching and community football network.
