Safeguarding Children


The Australian Football League (AFL) is committed to promoting and protecting the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people who participate in AFL/W activities, programs, services and /or use AFL/W facilities by fostering a culture where children and young people feel safe and welcome.

To help support children, young people, families as well as coaches, umpires and those who deliver and support community football, the AFL has created a suite of resources and useful links to help foster a safe and welcoming environment.

Everyone who plays AFL has the right to Be Safe, Feel Safe, Play Safe.
