ANDREW RAINES, HEAD COACH OF THE GOLD COAST SUNS AFL ACADEMY

Haven Magazine - - Upfront -

While AFL might be con­sid­ered more so a sport for the south­ern states of Aus­tralia, there’s ac­tu­ally a se­ri­ous fol­low­ing of AFL fol­low­ers up here as well and it’s get­ting larger as our lo­cal teams and lo­cal play­ers reach higher and higher lev­els of achieve­ment in the game. The AFL Aus­kick pro­gram also has most of our school kids learn­ing to love the game from a young age and South-East Queens­land can be proud of the AFL ex­ports we are send­ing south. Who bet­ter to talk AFL with haven mag­a­zine than Gold Coast SUNS academy Head Coach Andrew Raines. A suc­cess­ful player in his time, Andrew has re­cently re­tired and is now giv­ing back to the game that gave him so much, via his coach­ing nous.
