Saturdays - starting 21st April 2018
9.00am - 10.30am
The Altona Auskick centre offers an all ages (5-12) and abilities the opportunity to try AFL, make some new friends and have fun.
We will kickoff our 2018 program at 9am on the Saturday 21st April at JK Grant Reserve on Bluegum Drive. We play on the main Cricket oval.
We work closely with the Altona Vikings and offer a range of opportunities for you to expand your footy skills and childhood wishes. This includes a transition program from Auskick to the Altona Vikings for kids who are interested in club footy.
We’ll have visit from the Vikings, Williamstown Football Club and also representatives from the Western Bulldogs Mens and Womens teams during the season. We will also look to give as many age-qualified kids the opportunity to play a half time game, be it with our local club the Vikings, at the VFL or at the AFL.
To achieve what we believe is one of the best centres in the region, we rely on everyone doing their bit. Our centre (like all centres) are 100% run by hard working volunteers. Anyone who can offer encouragement and applaud the effort of a child, qualifies to be a helper. If you're able to do this or to help out in any other way, be it on the day or in the background, we can always really use your help.
We always need parents who can help the coach. You don’t need to be an experienced AFL player or make a commitment to be there every week. We’re looking for parents who can talk positively to kids and help delivery instructions.
As a parent it's your responsibility to be there if your child needs help. While Auskick is non-contact unfortunate accidents can happen. First aid is available, parent help/support is required. If you have to leave during the session, please ensure you notify the coach.
Also, don't worry if your child doesn't get excited or involved in the program straight away. Its takes some kids a while to warm up. Talk to your coach or the coordinator if you have any concerns or questions. We have multiple options to improve the experience of your child.
Now that all the serious stuff is done, we're proud to say we are one of the fastest growing established Auskick centres in the region. We have a leadership group who is as excited as you are, and our kids are awesome.
Tell all your friends, get them to sign up too!
