Sports Programs Resources | Football | Auskick

Auskick is a program designed to provide boys and girls aged 5 to 9 years with a safe and enjoyable introduction to AFL football. The program provides children with a solid skill foundation and builds their confidence to play team sports. The main focus of Auskick is to allow children to make friends through sport, increase healthy interaction with parents and other kids and improve skill foundations. Every participant in Auskick regardless of ability should have the same opportunity to run, kick, handball and mark in every Auskick session.

Auskick is a strong participation program in the Kimberley with all major towns running structured centres and most remote communities running modified programs through either the school or community. The Auskick program is very flexible and can be delivered as a school based or community based activity. In the Kimberley Auskick is generally delivered throughout term 2 and is closely linked to the Eagle and Dockers Cup primary school program. In the Kimberley in 2012, there were 31 Auskick centres operating with a total of 1340 participants.
