Seven days to the AFL Draft: Be schooled

Just seven days left until the NAB AFL Draft and seven is the magic number next week for the AFL coaching courses.

Seven current AFL Coaches will present at the AFL Queensland Level Two Coaching course, following the draft.

Starting on Saturday November 29, the Level Two coaching course will feature four Brisbane Lions coaches – Simon Black, Ben Hudson, Mitch Hahn and Matt Francis – and three Gold Coast SUNS coaches – Andy Lovell, Max Kennedy and Ashley Prescott- sharing their knowledge with Queensland community coaches.

To participate, coaches must have held a level one accreditation for at least two years and be coaching in youth or senior football.

This course aims to help coaches expand their coaching skill set and is the beginning of a multi-faceted program that will give you a Level Two coaching accreditation.

The Level Two course goes over two days, running from 8:30-4:30 on November 29 and 30, the first step in a multi-faceted accreditation program.

The coaching course is just one of three opportunities to up skill at the end of Draft week.

AFL Queensland’s Talent ID course will be held at Metricon Stadium on Friday November 28, from 1-7pm.

This course provides a greater insight into what makes a talented athlete and could help you spot talent at a local or elite level.

Finally, AFL Queensland will hold the Coach coordinator course, the first time this has been run as an accredited course.

This course is ideal for junior clubs looking to build a strong football program.

the role of the club coaching co-ordinator is pivotal in the football club and designed to assist in the support and continual development of coaches and their support staff.
