AUSKICK FOR COORDINATORS

NAB AFL AUSKICK INFORMATION FOR COORDINATORS

Coordinators are the facilitators of the program – combining passion, training and communication skills to develop a NAB AFL Auskick centre that involves the community and adheres to its core community values.

What is an Auskick Coordinator?

The centre coordinator is the key figure behind a NAB AFL Auskick centre. Every NAB AFL Auskick centre must have, at least, a centre coordinator and a coaching coordinator before it can begin.

Coordinators are the facilitators of the program – combining passion, training and communication skills to develop a NAB AFL Auskick centre that involves the community and adheres to its core community values.

They’re ideally accredited with either Level 1 or Level 2 coaching courses. It’s a volunteer role and, normally, a parent of one of the children participating in the program.

What Does A Coordinator Do?

Coordinator Commitments

  1. Attend all state or regional meetings as required. These meetings are an essential component of the coordinator’s year. They inform the coordinator of the resources available and responsibilities toward the program.
  2. Manage the registration and payment process for all participants.
  3. Distribute benefits and maintain resources. The coordinator is responsible for performing this role, but can appoint someone to coordinate all equipment.
  4. Coordinate in good faith a community focus, giving recognition to volunteers, and ensuring that all organizational requirements of a NAB AFL Auskick centre are adhered to. Maintain a community focus.
  5. Ensure that the coaches appointed to run the NAB AFL Auskick sessions follow the guidelines in the Coach’s Handbook, which has been developed to ensure that all children benefit from a sequential learning program.
  6. Give feedback to the AFL. The AFL needs feedback on how to improve the program and the support given to those volunteers who are so vital to the success of the program.

    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.
