Kangaroos coach hops in to support AFLCV Coaching Academy

NORTH Melbourne coach Brad Scott will be a key figure at this month’s launch of the CoachAFL Central Victoria Coaching Academy in Bendigo.

Coach of the Kangaroos since 2010, Scott will present to the Academy members on Player Management and relationships between, coach to players and coach to coaches on Wednesday, February 27, at Latrobe University, Bendigo.

The session with Scott and Ben Robbins, mentor for the player leadership group at North Melbourne FC, will be the first of eight to be run by the Academy.

After a 168-game playing career, which included premierships with the Brisbane Lions in 2001 and ’02, Scott became the Kangaroos coach in 2010.

A major goal of the CoachAFL Central Victoria Coaching Academy is to network with AFL, AFLW, VFL, VFLW and TAC Cup clubs to run a series of sessions to develop coaches across the AFL Central Victoria region.

Eight sessions will include a mix of theory, practical and observation to help coaches develop their skills.

The Academy program is open for all male and female from senior to junior, and those with ambitions to coach in the future.

CoachAFL Central Victoria Coaching Academy committee members Luke Monaghan, Danny O’Bree, Mark Ellis, Daniel Reid and Shane Koop have drawn on their experiences to help the region’s coaches, whether they be long-time, or just starting out in a challenging role.
