Coaching NAB AFL Auskick is a rewarding experience, allowing you to make a meaningful contribution to your community

What does an Auskick Coach do?

The role of the NAB AFL Auskick coach is to introduce kids to AFL with gentle encouragement. Auskick is all about fun, so our coaches are encouraged to create opportunities for kids to enjoy both structured and free-play. The focus is on improvement rather than “winning” and all kids should receive equal time and attention. To help plan NAB AFL Auskick sessions, a range of coaching resources are available.

Coaching Tips

Coaching kids is a rewarding experience and often has a significant impact on a child’s enthusiasm for continuing a sport. To support coaches, the AFL has developed the Junior Coaching Manual to assist in the delivery of many areas of coaching. The manual aims to build awareness of the physical, emotions, social and skill-learning characteristics of children. It also guides the reader through lesson plans, identifies safety issues and explores broader kids sport themes around winning and losing.
