AUSKICK

AUSKICK

The Auskick program makes learning to play Australian Rules Football fun, safe and easy for boys and girls alike. By attending weekly coaching sessions the children will learn the skills of the game in an exciting, social and safe environment. The Auskick program operates all over Australia.

NAB AFL Auskick is the best introduction for kids into the world of Australian Football. Auskickers run, jump, kick, laugh, express themselves and create their own special moments that just happens to be footy. No matter if you know the game or not, Auskick is inclusive for everyone aged 5-12 at any ability to play.

Children will learn fundamental motor skills vital for future physical activity and sports participation. Learning how to interact with others in a team situation through group activities will be a special focus.

The program also is a fantastic opportunity for parents to interact with their children through the Auskick activities. You can make new friends and learn about the sport, whilst spending some quality time with your children. Check out all the benefits of Auskick for kids and parents below. 

Auskick is a great introduction to our great Aussie game. For all details of EFC Auskick program and to register please visit the Auskick website. If you have any issues with registration, please contact SANFL directly via email at sanfljuniors@sanfl.com.au
