What is Auskick?
The NAB AFL Auskick program makes learning to play AFL fun, safe and easy for boys and girls. Through weekly coaching sessions they will learn the skills of the game in an exciting, social and safe environment. The AFL Auskick program has centres that operate all over the country.
Children will learn the fundamental motor skills vital for future physical activity and sport participation as well as learning how to interact with other children as part of a team in small group activities.
The program also provides a great opportunity for parents to interact with their kids through the activities, have the opportunity to make new friends, learn about the game and spend quality time with their children.
Auskick at our Club
Auskick numbers are adequate sitting on around 72 which is an average of 18 per grade across Pre-Primary to Year 3. We believe that to have strong Junior sides in the next few years we need to look closely at improving our Auskick numbers as well.
Most games are played on Saturday mornings at VC Mitchell Park. This season we have been trialing Friday Night Auskick which has been highly successful. On these nights we invite parents and families to stay back so that the children can enjoy a Jumping Castle on the oval, and the parents can socialise and enjoy a meal at El’s Kitchen.
