Auskick sessions usually follow the same schedule each week. The coach gets all of the players together in a group on the oval and reminds us about the rules and tells us what we are going to do for the session.
We play warm-up games and activities.
Some Auskick centres might play a mini match with Auskick rules before the activities.
We usually do four activities in smaller groups.
When we do our activities, we might practise skills such as kicking, marking, handballing and bouncing the ball.
After activities, we usually play a mini match. Remember, the mini matches have Auskick rules!
The last thing we do is come together as a group. The coach might tell us about the day and about what is happening next week.
This is the usual Auskick schedule, but it might be a little different at my centre. The coach and my family will help me know what to expect!
