Six Point Player

This activity will teach NAB AFL Auskickers how to move the ball as a team!

x1 football


x8 cones


Half the Auskickers need bibs



Use your cones to create two ‘end zones’ across the width of the playing area at either end.

Give half the players bibs so that you’ve got two teams. The team with the bibs are the defenders. The other team are the attackers.

Place an attacker at each end zone. 


Attackers start with the ball and score points by passing to each other. Defenders try to intercept the ball but cannot touch the attackers.

Points are scored for each successful pass. Different points are awarded for different types of passes –  one point for a throw, three points for a handball. Any kind of pass into an end zone is worth a whopping six points!

Once a pass is made into an end zone, it is passed back out again and the game continues. However, the attackers must pass the ball at least twice before they can pass back into an end zone.


If the ball is intercepted or deflected by a defender, three points are deducted and the ball is returned to the attackers.

Keep a running total for the attacking team for a set period of time – start with one minute. Then, swap attackers and defenders and have a few goes.

Make sure you rotate the attackers in the end zones regularly, so they’re part of the action!


Try adding a defender into the end zones.


Change the size of the end zone to make it harder or easier to score.


Try using different type of balls.
