The role of parents is so important for the development of a player’s football journey. It is crucially important to have supportive parents when commencing football for the first time with the AFL Auskick Program.
The club aims to provide Auskickers with a fun season and this is due to the work of great coaches and volunteers who put in hard work to make the kids enjoy the year.
We aim to get parents involved in each Auskick session with a drill aimed around the parents but also welcome parents to stick around and help run the other drills and activities. We have two marquee matches for our Auskickers every year when the kids challenge the adults! The Mothers-Day match between the mothers and the Auskickers has been a drawcard of the year for some time now and recently we have held a Handicapped Dads match vs the Auskickers. Both of these matches are fun games to add some humour to the season.
The club also appreciates the support from Auskickers and their families with assistance during home junior games on a Sunday whether it is in the canteen, or the scoreboard and when we have Bunnings BBQs volunteers are always welcomed. On top of being able to assist at our great community club, volunteering is something that your children will no doubt remember forever. Auskick is part of the football club and we try to incorporate both the junior football and Auskick programs together as best we can. It isn’t the committees club, it is your club, the community club!
