Auskick is for school ages Pre-Primary to Year 2.  AUSKICK is a safe non-contact skills based program that requires parent/guardian participation.

For children below Pre Primary age, parents should contact the club’s Auskick Coordinator and ask us about your child’s intro to football program which runs separate to Auskick.
