Flagstaff Hill Football Club is seeking volunteer Sports Trainers to join the team in Season 2021.
Sports trainers and first aiders have been part of Australian Football since the origins of the game. They are part of the fabric of every club and play a key role in player preparation and safety at all levels. At FHFC our Sports Trainers are a vital cog in the wheel and keep our players from our Junior and Senior teams in top shape during games and trainings.
