Boys and girls up to 8 years of age, have you ever wanted to learn how to play the game of football? If so, then Auskick is for you. Auskick is the perfect introduction to the great game of Australian Football. The program is based on a weekly coaching program that focuses on teaching the skills and the basics of the game through appropriately modified activities and rules.
The emphasis is on providing a fun and safe environment for both kids and parents. The skills learnt at Auskick are a valuable introduction to ultimately playing the game at clubs and schools. Auskick is a 9 week program, with many centres located around the North Adelaide Football Club zone. In addition you will also receive a benefits pack, packed full of goodies, with your very own football, to continue practicing all the skills learnt in Auskick.
Contact Jason Rivett on 0405 455 585 for start times and Coordinators details, or if you wish to start a centre at your school / club. To register online visit www.aflauskick.com.au
Mini League consists of two teams within the NAFC promotional zone playing against each other at half time of the league game at Prospect Oval, and is for year 6/7 students. Schools and clubs are rostered from year to year in order to facilitate the large numbers within the zone. We try to accommodate everyone, but with 10 home games a year it can sometimes be quite difficult. If you would like to participate ask your P.E. teacher to contact the club. The Mini League Manager is Tayla Batty.
Students in Year 2/3, 4/5, & 6/7 have the opportunity to participate in a modified rules school competition. This competition is focused on promoting enjoyment and fair play, as well as learning and skill development, but importantly it is all about having fun, and getting a kick. Schools in the North Adelaide Metropolitan zone are encouraged to participate in this competition that takes place on a Saturday morning. Schools can combine to make one team.
If your school wishes to be part of this competition please contact Jason Rivett (NAFC D.O) on 0405 455 585.
North Adelaide Football Club will operate an elite development school which will complement our existing squad program. Over the years the most frustrating aspect of our great game is the lack of individual coaching at an appropriate age. In most other sports, the ratio of coach to player is much lower than the typical Australian Football Model. In addition we shall provide practical coaching sessions to better equip aspiring coaches who have passed their mandatory qualification as required by the SANFL. Finally, we shall provide Club Administration consultancy to assist Community Football Clubs in terms of modelling and structures. Grassroots football must be afforded every opportunity to thrive.
Footy School is postponed for season 2020 due to COVID restrictions.
