After School Auskick FAQ – Schools

What does a school need to do to be able to host an NAB AFL After School Auskick Program?

There are 5 simple steps for your school to take before your students are involved in this invaluable experience with NAB AFL Auskick Schools Program.

  1. Meet with the Project Development Coordinator, to explore the program and explain the schools and AFL Victoria’s involvement and all the benefits.
  2. Allow 5 mins at an assembly to explain to your students about the program, the benefits and the exciting NAB AFL Auskick School football kit they will receive.
  3. Flyers will be produced for your prep – grade 4 students free of charge and all we ask is for them to be placed in the classroom tubs and handed out to the students after our promotional talk
  4. We would like to place a small advertising sign on the school fence for 2-3 weeks to inform the school community about the NAB AFL Auskick Schools Program operating in your school.
  5. Allow us to make use of your school oval or other designated space for 1 hour a week.

Are Teaching Staff required to be present for the sessions?

  • No school staff required to be present, all sessions are delivered by Level 1 accredited coached with First Aid and WWCC.

What happens when a session is cancelled?

AFL Victoria Staff will notify all parents via email and phone to let them know if the program has been cancelled due to bad weather or unforeseen circumstances. The School may be asked to pass this message onto Kids prior to the end of the school day.

If required, AFL Victoria will send a coach to the school to accompany children whose parents have not received notification, until parents arrive.
