Foxtel and the AFL Coaches Association shine a light on what really matters to the game that Australia loves - our local coaches.

#ThanksCoach is all about inspiring and appreciating grassroots coaches around Australia for their tireless work over each football season.

In 2017, Foxtel & AFL Coaches provided an amazing opportunity for coaches from all around Australia to be nominated to attend a series of coaching Masterclasses at AFL Clubs. 500 lucky nominated participants were chosen to attend coaching masterclasses at Greater Western Sydney, Sydney Swans, Port Adelaide, Adelaide, Brisbane Lions, Gold Coast Suns, Carlton, St Kilda, Hawthorn and North Melbourne. Hosted by the Senior Coach and some of his coaching team at the clubs facilities, the Masterclasses covered skills, drills, team management, strategy plus Q&A.
