Foxtel and the AFLCA say #ThanksCoach to celebrate grassroots coaches
Tuesday, May 16, 2017 - 9:33 AM

This season grassroots coaches are being celebrated in the new #ThanksCoach campaign launched by Foxtel and AFL Coaches’ Association. 

Every AFL player has been supported, encouraged, developed, moulded, challenged and inspired by their coaches along the way. 

Those coaches have been strategist, counselors, mentors, role models, amateur psychologists and friends. Each has helped their players navigate the challenges and obstacles they faced.

Foxtel and the AFL Coaches Association are giving 600 grassroots coaches around Australia the chance to win a #ThanksCoach Masterclass to recognise the vitally important contribution grassroots coaches make to the success of players and the game.

This is an amazing opportunity to spend time with the best AFL clubs and coaches in the business.

Members of grassroots football clubs across Australia are encouraged to say #ThanksCoach and nominate their coach for the chance to visit an AFL Club in their state for a #ThanksCoach Masterclass.

If you know a coach who deserves this opportunity then head to and nominate them today.

At the end of the Masterclass season, a select group of coaches will be receiving the ultimate coaching reward, The Coach Trip of a Lifetime.

This money can’t buy experience will see deserving local coaches travel to Melbourne for a unique AFL Grand Final package.

Show your appreciation for your coach on social media using #ThanksCoach.
