AFL Canada Webinar Series

Is there something footy related you’ve always wanted to know more about? Perhaps something related to running your club or something from a performance point of view?

Upon the postponement of regular seasons and the International Cup, AFL Canada set about organising a series of webinars to assist players and club officials with these very queries. And even though some leagues and team trainings were able to resume the virtual learnings have continued.

Those who tuned in were lucky enough to be educated by guest speakers of the very highest calibre, see the full list below.

AFL Canada would like to extend a huge thank you to those who gave up their time to guest host, and those who attended and took part in the webinars series.
