Testimonial - Kicking Importance for an AFL Coach

Shane Watson - The AFL Coach

Shane Watson is forward line coach for the Carlton Football Club. Previously, he coached at North Melbourne Football Club. He has also coached in the TAC Cup and at community level. Shane is a strong supporter of players developing their kicking skills to their full potential.

“I’ve been coaching now for roughly ten years, at community level, the TAC Cup competition and now at AFL level. The main attribute we look for as coaches is a player’s ability to kick the ball well. Often, we’re sitting around the match committee table debating who is going to be in this week, and often it is the player who can kick the ball well who will get the nod.

Anything you can do to improve your technique is going to benefit you as a footballer.”
