Auskick is the AFL’s way to introduce kids to the great game of Aussie Rules Football. It’s all about fun, getting hands on the ball and constantly being involved in exciting activities. No AFL experience is necessary as Auskick offers an inclusive environment for everyone aged 5 – 12 at any skill level to play.  All genders can play, and the game is non-contact.
