Looking for a coaching staff

American Football Association of Finland has set an ambitious goal to remodel and upgrade flag football activities in Finland starting season 2021.

The set goal is to upgrade flag football and national teams’ activities to a level that will enable participation in international tournaments to be held in the coming years. Flag football has been selected for the 2022 World Games in Alabama, USA and the sport has ambitions to be in 2028 Los Angeles Olympics.

Taking operations to a new level will be started by opening key positions in national team management and coaching.  The national team staff will also play an important role in launching operations regionally with teams in Finland.
