Is it Possible to display a sub collection on another collection page as a link in the venture theme

I am new to Shopify and just navigating my way through how it works. I have set up my collections so that their is a top level collection and then a series of other collections that fall below that. What I cant work out is how I can display these collections that are sub collections in the navigation as a link on the top collection page instead of just products that fall within that main collection. I hope you can understand my question.

For example my main collection is AFL Trading cards - then off this are a series of collections like 2020 AFL Footy Stars etc. I want the main collection AFL Trading Cards to display all the individual collections underneath it and not all the products. I know this appears in the navigation menu but I want it to appear on page as links. Is collections the way to do this or do I need to use pages. Any help greatly appreciated. 

Thanks

Ben

Still have an issue with this as can only see two theme template options to choose from when I create new page. Is this because I am only on free trial at this stage or am I doing some thing wrong. Any help would be greatle appreciated.

I have solved how to do this. I have a further question is it possible in the venture theme to create pages that are the same as home page. ie what is the template for home page that I can replicate as a option for creation of pages ? or how do I go about adding the option to add sections to a new template In created.

 

Thanks

Still having issues creating multiple different pages displaying collection lists that are sub collections in the venture theme. I read somewhere you can do this with the page.list-collections-menu. template. Cannot find this in this theme. Can I apply this to this theme or is there another method to do so. Need some clear help with this if anyone can provide. Thanks

Trying to use the following tutorial to make this happen but keeps coming up with error when pasting code. Does this work for venture theme ?
