Here's your guide to creating an Auskick centre that's welcoming and inclusive for every child and family. Find tips, checklists, and types of Access All Abilities (AAA) centres to ensure everyone gets to enjoy the game. Visit AllPlay Footy to learn more about supporting children with disability at Auskick.

All Auskick centres are inclusive and accessible to everyone. Learn how to make your centre inclusive and accessible to everyone.

Access All Abilities (AAA) centres are for players with disability and their families who may prefer a centre that has taken steps to provide additional support for young people with disabilities. To promote your centre as AAA, we request that the centre can deliver on this checklist. Once you have completed the items, reach out to your regional manager so they can activate your AAA accreditation on PlayHQ. 

There are three types of Access All Abilities Auskick centres - Disability Specific, Side by Side, and Integrated. Here’s what that means for Auskick coordinators:

Disability Specific
Stand-alone centres set up specifically for young people with disability, usually located at a Specialist School or Early Intervention Centre. These centres can provide a greater level of support, which may create the best Auskick experience for the young person.

Side by Side
Side by Side centres allow a group specifically for young people with disability to operate alongside the group within an existing Auskick centre. The group of young people with disability are given a bit more space and support and have flexibility to move between their group and the existing group as they like.

An integrated Auskick centre has all young people, both with and without disability, playing footy together. It’s important that coordinators and coaches review registrations to see who identifies as living with disability, and adapt your session to support the needs of each player. 

The AFL and Deaf Sports Australia have developed a guidebook to support children who are deaf or hard of hearing participate in Auskick.

This document can be used to support when facilitating a standalone deaf NAB AFL Auskick program (just children who are deaf or hard of hearing), or an integrated program where you may have children integrated in a main session.
