Coaching Bio

Brisbane Lions AFLW Captain. I love coaching and being able to give back to AFL to help create more opportunities for athletes and young girls and boys to grow in the sport especially here in QLD where it is an NRL dominated state.

*I am currently unavailable for coaching* I first started playing AFL in 2008 at the age of 19, where I played for my local team in Morningside, before creating a team at the Coorparoo Football Club where I was the inaugural premiership captain in 2013. In 2014 and 2015, I captained the Coorparoo FC again where we were premiers and was named League Best and Fairest in both years. In 2016, I was one of two priority picks for the Inaugural Brisbane Lions AFLW Team, and have now played AFLW with the Lions for the past five years. I was named the inaugural Brisbane Lions AFLW captain and will again captain the side for the 2021 season. Off the field, I have previously coached the QLD Under 18 Youth girls team and youth teams at Coorparoo FC. I love AFL because it has helped me find a passion I never knew existed. I have met some of my best friends and met a lot of great influential people in my life from football. I love the game, the skill and the tactics of the game. I look forward to working with you and sharing my experience and knowledge of AFL to help you improve and achieve your goals.

I recently book Play book coach Emma Zielke from the Brisbane Lions . My daughter is 13 years old and has played Afl for three years . Emma was amazing , quickly working on skills Remy already knows but improving on them.Teaching her new kicks and tricks and evasive skills . I would recommend Emma to any young buddy aflw superstar and to be coached by one of her idols was awesome . I will definitely book in more sessions with Emma in the future.

Alannah loves playing AFL and is a huge Brisbane Lions supporter. When I found out about Playbook coach, I knew organising a one on one session for her 10th Birthday would be an amazing gift. I was even more thrilled to discover Emma was one of the coaches available, given how much Alannah loves her as a player. Emma made Alannah feel comfortable right from the start of the session. She was positive, encouraging and Alannah learned valuable tips for improving her skills and technique. Most of all, she had lots of fun doing it! I can’t thank Emma and Playbook enough for an amazing experience! I’m sure this is a birthday present she will never forget!
