 Active After School Communities Program

Active After School Communities Program (AASCP) is an ASC initiative that provides primary school children with free access to structured physical activity programs between 3.00-5.30pm. The program gives children a positive first experience with a variety of sports and builds the basic skills they need to play sport at Club level. The program is currently running in over 3,200 schools and after-school care centres across Australia.
