When does Auskick Season start?

Who can do Auskick?

Auskick is open to boys and girls who turn 5 in the calendar year, and up to the age of 12. We encourage those in Grades 3, 4, and 5 to continue with Auskick as it provides invaluable practise of the techniques they will use in junior footy.  Besides, it's heaps of fun, and from grade 2 onwards, they will be eligible to play at half time at a real AFL match! How good is that?!

What you need to bring

Apart from your child, little else is needed. Clothing suitable for running around in is useful, (i.e. shorts, footy jumper etc). Whilst some children will be wearing football boots, they are optional - although useful in slippery conditions. It is highly recommended that you bring you own water bottle, although there is a drinking fountain at the ground. We encourage children to wear a well fitting mouth guard, as although there is no tackling in Auskick, accidents do happen.

Parental Involvement

Parents (both mums and dads) are the driving force behind AFL Auskick. Their role as  Co-ordinators, Coaches, and volunteers is fundamental to the success of the program. Auskick sessions are of most benefit to your child when a ratio of one parent helper is available to each five children.  Make sure you get involved.  You'll have heaps of fun!
