Michelle Cowan will head up the AFL Women’s Coaching Academy.
The Academy was announced in August and now it’s been revealed Cowan will mentor the six female coaches identified through AFL and AFLW clubs and State bodies.
“It’s a great program which offers a really supportive environment to six identified coaches coming through pathway, so the opportunity offered to mentor and provide that environment really appealed to me,” Cowan told AFL.com.au. “I would’ve absolutely loved to have something like this coming through as a new coach. I had incredible male coaching mentors, but to have support like this is a bit different. It’s a great initiative and support coming through the elite coaching pathway.”
