Resource Centre

There is a wealth of information available within the resource centre provided both via the Ashy Redbacks, and also from our league associations & the AFL.


Managing Injuries

Injuries are a part of playing a contact sport. That said, we aim to minimise the likelihood of these and protect all players as best we can. Each team has a qualified first aid representative and the club provides additional medical support each game day.

In the event of a player receiving an injury, there are some good reference guides below to help with a first response. 


We're always on the look out for people who want to coach or assist in coaching. If you'd like to get involved please reach out to our Hugh, our Club Manager. 

Teaching the skills, tactics and strategies of Australian Football is a rewarding experience. The quality of coaching is one of the primary reasons why players either continue to participate in Australian Football or give up the game. The coach has significantly more influence upon players than any other official or person connected with football.

All coaches need to be accredited. The first step is to find out when accreditation courses are taking place in your region and enrol. Typically new coaches start with AusKick or a junior team whilst they continue to develop their coaching philosophy and build on their coaching skills. Senior coaching positions tend to be advertised through local league website, newspapers, football records and other media.

Game Day Roles & Responsiblities

The following roles are crucial for a successfully run game day. People who are operating in these roles should make themselves familiar with their responsibilities prior to turning up on the day.

Celebrating Milestone Games

If you have a milestone game coming up, this is one way of making a banner.

Before you begin, decide the wording you want for your banner, we recommend that you do not use long words like Congratulations as they don’t fit well on the banner.

Purchase: 2 packets of green crepe paper, 2 packets of red crepe paper, one packet of white A4 paper (for the letters), glue to stick crepe together and letters to the crepe.

Prepare the lettering

1. Download this Milestone Games Banner Template

2. Amend the letters in the attached Word document to the lettering you require (Hold mouse over a letter and right mouse click > select Edit text > enter the required letter or number, repeat for each letter until you have the wording you require, add or delete letters as required)

3. Print the finished Word document on the white A4 paper (you will have a letter to a page)

4. Cut the lettering out

5. Glue your 4 packets of crepe paper together horizontally

6. Glue the lettering onto your crepe paper

7. Once dry, attach banner to poles with strong tape (try timber poles) and check if the Committee has some available from past banners before buying them

NOTE: We recommend that you do not use heavy or thick tape to stick the crepe together as the players often cannot run through it - not the best image to capture on photo!

Don't forget to capture the players running through the banners - we love to celebrate these amazing achievements! Simply email photos through to (featured in this photo) provide an option of 'outsourcing' banner making (featured in this photo) provide an option of 'outsourcing' banner making
