Volunteer of the Year Nominations


 Nominations are now open for the 2015 AFL Queensland Volunteer and Coach of the Year Awards.

Volunteers and coaches are the lifeblood of Australian football. Without them, we simply would not have a game.

They work for the love of the football, not pay checks or praise… be it mentoring and encouraging our juniors, turning the snags on the match day BBQ or tending the club books.  

The AFL Queensland Volunteer andawards provide our AFL community with the opportunity to recognise outstanding contributions to football by nominating the people who work tirelessly to bring our sport to life.

A State Volunteer of the Year will be chosen from the nominations. He or she will receive a grand final package for them and their partner that includes air fares, accommodation and grand final tickets. They will also attend a grand final function and take part in the official AFL Grand Final Parade.
