Coaches greatly influence the forming and development of personalities of young players in their care.

AFL New Zealand is committed to supporting coaches in AFL to provide the best experience for AFL participants across all grades and age levels. AFL New Zealand works in conjunction with the AFL, Regional Sports Trusts and Sport New Zealand to provide up to date resources and assistance to our coaches so they are able to focus on coaching and caring for their participants.

Across New Zealand there are opportunities to coach at a number of levels across multiple programmes:

  • AFL KiwiKick (Primary School)
  • Secondary School
  • AFL New Zealand Youth Competition
  • AFL New Zealand Academy
  • Regional Local Leagues
  • AFL New Zealand Premiership
  • New Zealand Representative programmes
