New Coaches:

New coaches are able to accredit from November 1, 2019. All new coaches are required to:

  1. Complete the Coaching Profile and select a Coaching Role
  2. Pay the CoachAFL Membership Fee of $49.50
  3. Agree to the Coaches’ Code of Conduct
  4. Complete the online Foundation Course relevant to the playing age group of their team (Junior, Youth or Senior), including modules on Concussion Management & Mental Health Awareness.

This process remains the same as it was for 2018 & 2019. A coach is NOT required to attend a workshop to gain Foundation accreditation.

Re-Accrediting Coaches with an Accreditation expiring at the end of 2019:

All re-accrediting coaches are able to renew from Friday January 17, 2020. For those coaches with an accreditation expiring at the end of 2019 they are required to:

  1. Update their Coaching Profile and their Coaching Role/s
  2. Pay the annual CoachAFL Membership Fee of $49.50
  3. Agree to the Coaches’ Code of Conduct
  4. Complete an online module on Mental Health Awareness*

This process mirrors what was done for 2019, with the Mental Health Awareness course becoming the mandatory renewal module (in 2018 this was concussion management, 2019 was Respectful Relationships).

Existing Coaches with an Accreditation expiring in either 2020/21:

All existing accredited coaches are able to update their accreditation starting Friday January 17, 2020. For those coaches with an accreditation expiring in 2020/21 they will be required to:

  1. Update their Coaching Profile and their Coaching Role/s

Registering as a Coach to a Club in 2020:

The registration process for coaches will remain the same in 2020. Coaches will need to select their coaching role in their profile on CoachAFL by selecting the correct League and Club. This information will then be transferred across to FootyWeb (SportsTG) every 24 hours.

Coaching Development Points:

*Please Note: Foundation Level Coaches that have not obtained the required amount of 10 Coaching Development Points by 31 December 2019 will be required to re-do the Foundation Coaching Course specific to the age group they are coaching when renewing in 2020.
