GROUND MARSHALL TRAINING
Across the state, presidents of junior and youth clubs are calling for easier ways to train and educate volunteers.
It is unanimous that the coach is the most important ‘on field’ role on match days, due to their influence over the players, parents, officials and greater environment.
Building onto this, we believe that the Ground Marshall role (junior / youth grades) is the most important ‘off field’ role due to its ability to manage our match days environments to ensure a positive, family friendly environment.
The Ground Marshall is a simple role and can easily be undertaken by adult volunteers. However it is very important that the Ground Marshall is well aware of their responsibilities. In our busy world, we understand training and education can be difficult, which is why we have developed this resource.
The video outlines the key roles, skills and approaches to undertaking this critical role. Having watched this video, volunteers can undertake the role with greater confidence and an improved ability to provide the best environment for our children.
It is important to note that differences in the roles of the Ground Marshall can vary across league’s in Queensland. This video is designed as a generic guide to basic roles and skills. Please consult your club and local league regarding local specifics to the role.
Welcome to AFL Queensland Ground Marshall Training. Thank you for positivity contributing to junior AFL.
