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.

A typical Auskick session

9:15am - Arrive at ground, have a kick with mum, dad and friends
9.25am - Assemble in age groups and move to allocated areas
9.30am - Play warm up games
9.40am - Skill teaching, guided by head coach and assisted by parent helpers
10.10am - Skill games using skill taught (today and previously)
10.30am - Break into teams and play a match using modified Auskick rules
11.00am - Awards and pack up, and departure

 

At this “Rookie” stage of an Auskick Program the emphasis is on: Catching, Kicking, Picking up, Bouncing, Ball Handling, Falling, Balancing

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

FUN!!
