Get Involved – Coordinator Participation

The centre coordinator is the key figure behind a NAB AFL Auskick centre. Every NAB AFL Auskick centre must have, at least, a centre coordinator and a coaching coordinator before it can begin.

 

The Centre Coordinator is:

  • The facilitator of the program – combining passion, training and communication skills to develop a NAB AFL Auskick centre that involves the community and adheres to its core community values.

  • Ideally accredited with either Level 1 or Level 2 coaching courses.

  • A volunteer and, normally, a parent of one of the children participating in the program.

 

The Coordinator is responsible for:

  • The efficient running of the NAB AFL Auskick centre.

  • Establishing a committee structure.IMG_3896

  • Advertising to recruit kids and parents.

  • Attending regional development meetings.

  • Maintaining financial systems.

  • Managing equipment.

  • Distributing benefits.

  • Developing communication links.

  • Facilitating participation by all parents.

 

A Centre Coordinator’s commitment:

  1. Attend all state or regional meetings as required. These meetings are an essential component of the coordinator’s year. They inform the coordinator of the resources available and responsibilities toward the program.

  2. Manage the registration and payment process for all participants.

  3. Distribute benefits and maintain resources. The coordinator is responsible for performing this role, but can appoint someone to coordinate all equipment.

  4. Coordinate in good faith a community focus, giving recognition to volunteers, and ensuring that all organizational requirements of a NAB AFL Auskick centre are adhered to. Maintain a community focus.

  5. Ensure that the coaches appointed to run the NAB AFL Auskick sessions follow the guidelines in the Coach’s Handbook, which has been developed to ensure that all children benefit from a sequential learning program.

  6. Give feedback to the AFL. The AFL needs feedback on how to improve the program and the support given to those volunteers who are so vital to the success of the program.

In the end it is a community program so it is important to assist the AFL to be responsive to the changing needs of the community.
