AFL Split the playing area in half with some cones. Auskickers can hoop at their feet.


An Auskicker from each side runs a footy into the other zone and 'plants' it next to one of the scattered cones.

When they return it's the next Auskicker's go.

The first team to plant all their footballs win!
