Toyota AFL ClubHelp Website

The new & improved Toyota AFL ClubHelp Website – is now operational. The AFL has overhauled the site to significantly improve the user experience for club volunteers, using feedback from community football volunteers as guidance.

Tips, guides, and policies across a range of areas that local clubs focus on can be found via 40 pages on the site compared to well over 200 on the old site. A sub-heading menu has also been added to help club volunteers go directly to what they are looking for.
