Coaches, officials and senior football players recently participated in the Tackle Your Feelings workshop facilitated by Valley Sport.
Tackle Your Feelings is a program delivered by a local psychologist, which aims to provide community coaches with the tools to understand, recognise and manage their response to signs of mental health in players using football analogies.
Participants appreciated the information from Rachael and Tristan, our presenters and chaired by James 'Griffo' Griffin (player wellbeing).
Tackle Your Feelings is an initiative from the AFL Coaches Association, AFL Players’ Association and Zurich Insurance.
The MFNC continues to focus on player wellbeing and enhance the knowledge, skills and capacity for our coaches, officials and senior players to support our playing group and one another.
Should any member of the club have a need or would like more information please contact their coach, team manager or one of our participants (see photo).
