AFLNZ Youth volunteers critical in programme’s success

Expressions of interest are now open for Youth volunteers around the country.


The AFL New Zealand Youth programme has continued to grow nationwide and is now an integral part of the annual calendar.

The programme would not be possible without fantastic people volunteering their time to be coaches and is the perfect opportunity to develop fundamentals of coaching and inspire the future generations of AFL players.

With more centres than ever, there are more opportunities to coach than ever before and AFLNZ is committed to providing all the support, training and development as required. Session plans, CoachAFL and RookieMe are all tools available to coaches, additionally each centre will have a youth coordinator to support all coaches.

The Youth programme is scheduled to start the weekend of 31st October/1st November and run for 8 weeks finishing up the weekend of 19th/20th December.

The timing of centres varies but all activity is scheduled between 8:30am-12:30pm.
