CoachAFL is FREE for ALL coaches in 2022. As part of a range of initiatives to support community football bounce back, we are excited to announce that the CoachAFL membership fee of $49.50 has been removed for all coaches registering in 2022. 

Registering as a Coach to a Club in 2022: 

All coaches will register to their community club/s via CoachAFL. Coaches must select the club/team (in the correct league) they are coaching in their Coaching Profile (Step 1) to be linked to their community club.

Coaches must complete all 3 steps in the registration and accreditation user flow. Coaches will only show as registered and available for team selection in PlayHQ when their coaching role has been selected and their accreditation course for 2022 has been completed.
