Past AFL Premiership player, AFL assistant coach, current St Bernards FC coach and co-founder of the program Anthony Rock, says the content has been specificially created to allow for professional development and collaboration.
This program is an interactive online and face to face training program for club and community coaches, designed to provide support, learning and development.
AFL Legend and President of the AFL Coaches Association David Parkin attended the launch and was passionate in his praise (was even a hint of the old jugular popping out !) of Anthony Rock and his partners for a program that address's a critical need in football. David Parkin said "i see this program as an invaluable resource to mentor and support club and community coaches, to improve their own performance and to develop their players potential" David Parkin went on to say " this program is fully supported by the AFL Coaches Association, as it presents a great oppotunity for coaches of the sport to collaborate and develop, to strengthen the future of AFL in Australia".
The Accelerate Coach Education Program is aimed at coaches on all different levels, the program consists of online modules, face to face learning workshops, downloadable resources, online video's with AFL's top strategists and players.
As Anthony Rock highlights, "the support and involvement of the AFL Coaches Association is invaluable, providing the expertise and access to high profile coaches, which elevates the Accelerate Coach Education Program to be arguably the best in the country".
Research by Deakin University confirms that the number one factor in retaining and improving players is the quality of the coaching. So if you or your club are serious about providing the best possible coaching and support, then this program should be strongly considered.
