Coach support high on the agenda

Wednesday, October 31, 2018

Senior coaches in AFL South East will celebrate their fantastic contribution to football at the fourth and final session of the AFL South East Coach Support and Mentor Program.

The final session of 2018 will take place at the Langwarrin Pub on Tuesday 20 November, where coaches will congregate to reflect on a season that has once again provided the full spectrum of emotions.

From the highs of premiership success to the frustrations of unfulfilled seasons, the coaches will all come together as one to enjoy each other’s company in a friendly environment.

AFL South East Coaching Mentor and Support Coordinator Brent Clinnick said the night, provided by AFLSE, will continue to build respect between coaches throughout the region.        

“It’s important we continue to get around each other and really build on that strong network being established by our coaches throughout the South East,” Clinnick said.

“This is the first program of its kind in Victoria and is generating a heap of interest throughout the state. We are inviting existing and outgoing senior coaches, as well as our new recently appointed mentors, to join us and share in the journey.

“The more we can promote coach support the better off the entire coaching space will be.”

Former Fremantle coach Chris Connolly, and St Kilda assistant coach Adam Kingsley, have supported the program this year, offering tactical advice and personal development assistance throughout the course of the year.
