Brisbane Lions legend and midfield coach, Simon Black, headlines a list of big-name speakers at the Level Two Coaching Course later this month.
One of the AFL’s most decorated players and the only one to have won a Norm Smith Medal, Brownlow Medal, a premiership and played 300 games, Black will be offering his insights into coaching to his local counterparts.
He is not the only high-profile presenter at the two day course with the Lions committing four of their coaches to the event.
Black will be joined by forwards/ruck coach Ben Hudson, back line coach, Mitch Hahn and head of development, Matt Francis.
The quartet will share their expertise on the game with coaches wanting to gain a Level Two accreditation.
The Level Two course is a high performance coaching course for coaches looking to further enhance their skills.
Designed for senior coaches, representative coaches or youth coaches in higher age groups looking to become a representative coach, this course provides invaluable lessons.
Over two days, to be held at Metricon Stadium on November 29 and 30, coaches will hear from high-profile AFL mentors, with lessons to take back to their own football clubs.
AFL Queensland State Coaching, Volunteer and Affiliates Manager, Jack Barry, said these courses would help strengthen the state’s football clubs.
“All of these accreditation programs help to build skills in areas that are essential for the development of AFL in Queensland,” he said.
“If more people can identify talent, coach at a high level or provide support to our coaches that can only lead to a positive change in our clubs.
“Having highly knowledgeable and skilled people at all levels of football will ultimately help our players and coaches to improve as well.”
To be eligible, coaches need to have held a Level One accreditation for two years.
