What is NAB AFL Auskick?

The NAB AFL Auskick program has been developed to build the foundation skills for playing Australian football and to respond to the physical needs of children ages between 5-12 years.

It’s for the kids

Auskick allows boys and girls to play sport in a relaxed environment where making friends, having fun with their parents and improving their skills are given equal weight. It also provides excellent opportunity to play alongside other local kids, friends and classmates.

All children regardless of their ability have as many opportunities to touch the ball and use it effectively as the next child, enabling them to improve their ball handling skills and confidence playing a team sport.

Auskick also provides a strong base for kids to move into sport on a competitive level with the Club’s Junior Football program.

Structured competition is totally inappropriate for 5-8 year olds.
At this early stage, the program should place an emphasis on:

Motor co-ordination and movement activities in small groups.
Enhancing self-esteem and building social skills through individual achievement and group cooperation.
Introducing children to match play through AFL Auskick Rules games.
Parents make Auskick possible

Parents are the driving force behind NAB AFL Auskick. Their role as coordinators, coaches and volunteers is fundamental to the success of the program. But it’s not all giving. Parents have the opportunity to learn about football, parenting skills and make new friends and make new friends through their involvement with the Subiaco Junior Football Club and Auskick.
