Our Coaches develop and support all our players regardless of skill level and experience.
Does my child have to do Auskick before joining the Carindale Cougars?

In Under 9 and 10, there is modified tackling in the form of a ‘bear hug’ (no throwing players to the ground).
Under 11 is the earliest age group in which tackling is allowed.
