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 & Activities

In 2018, the AFL has introduced a brand new coaching and activity program, developed with the support of industry experts across coaching, childhood development and education, as well as Auskick coaches, parents and participants. The new program includes structured weekly sessions, based on activities and equipment designed to maximise fun, involvement and skill development.

More information can be found here, including detailed session and activity plans, how to set up a session and tips on getting more parents involved.

The new program will be gradually rolled out across the country over 2018 and 2019 to ensure Auskick Centres and coaches get the best possible support to implement effectively.
