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 aged 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 an 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 at a competitive level with the Club’s Junior Football program.
