Who Are Tackle Your Feelings?

Founded in 2018 by the AFL Coaches Association, AFL Players’ Association, and Zurich Insurance, Tackle Your Feelings equips community AFL coaches, committee members, and club support staff with vital tools to address mental health challenges in players. Spearheaded by local psychologists and guided by high-profile player and coach ambassadors, this initiative creates positive change both on and off the field.

In 2022, Tackle Your Feelings made a nationwide impact, holding 161 workshops with over 2,500 participants from 205 clubs across Australia. This success was achieved through crucial partnerships with state bodies, community leagues, AFL clubs, and regional sports assemblies.

Since its inception, Tackle Your Feelings has transformed the lives of over 7,200 participants nationwide, fostering a community that values well-being as much as athletic achievement.

As the 2023 VFL and QAFLW seasons approach their end, Southport Sharks affirms our commitment to Tackle Your Feelings and mental health advocacy. Together, let’s break the stigma surrounding mental health, promote open conversations, and empower individuals to seek help when needed.
