AFL Coaching and content lead to visit NZ

AFL coaching content and learning lead, Sam McKenzie is currently working alongside AFL New Zealand to help increase coaching numbers within the community.

McKenzie is currently in New Zealand and will work with Reg Ranchhod to help drive new initiatives for coaches.

Recently, AFLNZ announced that the CoachAFL membership fee of $49.50 would be removed for all coaches registering in 2022 – making the platform for existing and new coaches FREE.

Coaches are now able to register and complete their accreditation through the CoachAFL platform free of charge. New coaches who would like to register can sign up here.

As is the case each year, existing coaches will still be required to login and complete an update (online module) to keep their accreditation current. Each coach (New or Existing) will be able to register as a coach in their country during the process.

Existing coaches renew here.
