The AFL Coaches Association established the Women’s Coaching Crusade and Women’s Coaching Pathway Scholarship in 2019, out of the need to support ambitions of the AFLW players to help them realise their potential and fast-track their development to coach at the highest level. In 2021, we expanded the offering of the scholarship to include applications from women coaching in State Football Leagues (women’s and men’s) and players from the Women’s State Football Leagues and AFLW.

Since 2019, three AFL Coaches Association Women’s Coaching Pathway Scholarships have been awarded with Alicia Eva, Emma Grant and Christina Polatajko receiving a range of personal development benefits, which have included being funded to attend coaching courses to receiving an AFL coach as a mentor.

Women coaching in State Football Leagues (women’s and men’s) and players from the Women’s State Football Leagues and AFLW are invited to APPLY NOW for the 2022 AFL Coaches Association Women’s Coaching Pathway Scholarship.
