NTFL Kennards Hire Volunteer of the Year nominations now open!

The 2018/19 TIO NTFL season couldn’t run without volunteers. From the timekeepers to the trainers, and the mums and dads that do the laundry and manage teams, between all the picks ups and drop offs. There’s fruit cutters, boot cleaners and everything else in between.

We all know a great volunteer and now is your chance to really say thanks.
Speak to an official at your club and nominate them for the 2018/19 NTFL Kennards Hire Volunteer of the Year. Fill in this easy form by COB Thursday 21 February and send it back to AFLNTEvents@afl.com.au.
The winner will be invited to this season’s prestigious Nichols Medal event, held on Sunday 10 March, where they will be duly recognised in front of the NTFL community.
