The Coaches and Team Managers at Walkerville Junior Football Club are normally parents. We welcome your involvement, and will offer support and help to show you the ropes. Most Coaches, Team Managers, and their kids, find it a richly rewarding experience.


Coaches volunteer their time to coach a weekly training session, the match and attend some club training and functions.

Team Managers are the glue that binds the children, parents, and Club together. They organise the rosters, team communications, kit bag etc. Training is provided for this role.

As we are a child safe and child friendly club, all Coaches and Team Managers have police checks on their suitability for working with children and are expected to follow the Code of Conduct, Zero Tolerance and Racial Vilification Policy available from our website.  Coaches also receive/need Current Level 1 Accreditation. The Club will fund this short course and our Director of Coaches will organise it with you.

To further assist coaches, from time to time we organise club coaching clinics, information sessions and visits from AFL/SANFL players.

Coaches and Team Managers are appointed by the Walkerville Junior Football Club Committee who seek nominations, or may approach parents to fill the roles.

If you would like to contribute as a Team Manager, positions are open, just speak with your Coach or one of the Committee.

Once the player numbers and coaches have been confirmed, this information will be provided by the coaches and team managers, who will give you specific information regarding your team and training times etc.
