You can choose how to set up your obstacle course!

Every Auskicker uses a bll of their choice: footballs, coloured balls, etc.

Set it out as an imaginative, cool course for maximum fun!

In AFL There should be at least one gate for every Auskick pair. They can choose footballs, coloured balls, etc.


Step through your courses so the Auskickers can see what to do.

Now it's their turn

An example of the course might be:

  • Four hoops to hop through on alternate legs;
  • Three cones to tap the ball around with using two hands;
  • Two hoops to bounce the ball;
  • Post to weave in and out of;
  • one hoop on stand to throw the ball through before collecting it, and;
  • A tub to throw the ball into.
