Note that position allocations are not required for Juniors. 


From Season 2022 all Coaches and Team Managers will be able to access direct contact information for their team through PlayHQ 

Coaches need to complete coaching accreditation each year through Coach AFL.  Once you complete this, select your team as Belconnen Cats, then register as a volunteer through PlayHQ.  The club can now grant you access to your team. 

Team Managers can access their team contacts by registering with PlayHQ as a Team Manager.  The club Registrar then appoints them to a team and you can view your team/squad on PlayHQ

The PlayHQ Team Manager user guide is accessed here.

There will be information regularly updated and added through the AFL Club Help page including training and support resources to help you navigate PlayHQ.
