WHY GET INVOLVED IN
AMERICAN FOOTBALL?

Football is a welcoming, inclusive sport that is suitable for players, coaches and officials of all ages, genders and abilities.

 

As a team sport, football helps encourage younger players to develop teamwork and leadership skills as well as improving their confidence and self-esteem. 

There are lots of ways to play this great game. Some athletes are ready to jump in and stick with tackle or flag the rest of their life, while others need a step-by-step approach that bridges one way to play to another.

There are great pathways in football that suit all participants. Whatever your ability, gender or age - you can represent your club, league, state and Australia and can aspire to play, coach or referee in our national leagues, college, overseas leagues or even the Olympics.

COACHING

High quality coaches can bring considerable success to the team on the field and are integral to developing, sustaining and increasing participation across the sport, and providing a platform for the on-going development of the game.

The coaching of American football is famously synonymous with a chalk board covered in Xs and Os, but coaching is far more than that. A coach can have many roles and a host of responsibilities encompassing areas such as the tactical, technical, physical and psychological development of the players.
