AFL Sportsready Executive Courses

We have been in discussion with AFL Sportsready about providing some on-line PD opportunities and am pleased to advise that the AFL SportsReady’s Athlete & Sports Education Department has put together the two online courses as per below (with a third on its way). 

With the competition on hold the feedback we have received is that Coaches are looking for professional development opportunities that can be undertaken while they are at home.
