Around the World

It's time to get the NAB AFL Auskickers hopping, weaving and bouncing!

A collection of footballs and round balls

(One for each Auskicker)

A collection of hoops, cones, vests, tubs and posts

   

x4 adults for the group

(The more who can help, the better!)

HOW TO SET UP

You can choose how to set up your obstacle course!

Every Auskicker uses a ball of their choice: footballs, coloured balls, etc.

Set it out as an imaginative, cool course for maximum fun! 

LET'S PLAY

Step through your course so the Auskickers can see what to do.

Now it’s their turn!   

EXAMPLE OF COURSE

An example of the course might be:

  • Four hoops to hop through on alternate legs;
  • Three cones to tap the ball around with using two hands;
  • Two hoops to bounce the ball;
  • Posts to weave in and out of;
  • One hoop on a stand to throw the ball through before collecting it, and;
  • A tub to throw the ball into.

VARIATION 1

Try turning “Around the World” into a team race and see who can get back to their start point first!

VARIATION 2

When a team finishes, have them put their hands on their head.

VARIATION 3

Change the way everyone moves their body around each section, e.g. instead of running they hop or skip or jump!

VARIATION 4

Change direction and “run around the world” the other way.

To improve the flow of the game, have the Auskickers start at different corners of the obstacle course. Adults can be put at each station to help guide the Auskickers through.

"Around the World" gives an awesome workout and teaches Auskickers to use different motor skills in a quick series.

Get creative and have fun channeling your "inner child" when laying out the obstacle course!
