At Auskick, we often play games in groups.

It can sometimes be hard playing in groups. Some players might get in the way.

Sometimes, people can find it hard playing in groups. But, there are things I can do to help me play in groups.

I can ask another player or the coach how I can join in.

I can take a break from the group if I am feeling worried or stressed.

I can ask a helper to help me play in the group and understand what's happening.

Playing in groups can be lots more fun than playing alone!
