More About Me
I have got 2 years experience coaching children to play AFL Football. I work with the SANFL and I coach groups of school aged children from the ages of 7 to 13. I have got a Level 1 AFL Coaching Accreditation.
As a child, I played Club Footy for Henley Sharks in U9's and U11's. I played School Footy for Torrensville Primary School in the Year 4/5 and Year 6/7 teams as well as High School Knockout Footy for Underdale High School. I also played in the Half Time Mini League matches at SANFL and AFL matches in Adelaide.
Now, as an adult, I am a B Grade Field Umpire in the Adelaide Footy League as well as a Field Umpire in the SANFL Juniors.
I always start a typical session off with a warm up game to get the athletes warmed up. I will get the athletes to do some drills to focus on the skills of marking, hand balling, kicking, picking up the ball and tackling. I will get the athletes to play a game which enables them to use the skills practices in a game situation. I will then get the athletes to practice some set plays before doing a cool down.
