Throughout the month of July, we’re celebrating all the wonderful women in coaching as part of Women’s Coaching Month.  

Participation in women’s and girls' football has grown by 187% since the birth of AFLW, but there’s still work to be done in the coaching community. 

As part of the effort to recognise female coaches across all levels, we’re asking clubs around the country to submit a photo and/or video of a female coach who has made a significant contribution to the game, along with a short summary of that contribution. 

Is there a female coach at your club who deserves recognition? 

Head to the link below and let us know!
