NAB AFL Auskick has lots of games and activities where I can practise skills and have fun!
When I play Auskick, I’m exercising. That means my body might be moving around, stretching, bending, and being active. These are all important parts of exercising.
Exercising is important because it helps me practise my movement skills and keep my muscles strong. It helps my body be flexible. It helps keep me healthy.
Exercise can help me sleep better.
Exercise can help me settle my emotions and feel calm and happy.
Exercise can be fun to do with other people. I can make new friends when I exercise with other people!
