This year I registered my Mr 6 in Auskick. I’ve never been as keen or mad on footy like the rest of my family (this may have something to do with the club I support lol You could say they are not any real big winners).

Lately I’ve felt the need for Mr 6 to be part of a sports club and he had been showing a lot of interest in having a kick with the other kids at school. AFL it was. I registered him and he has taken to it really well and insisting on practicing every day.

I’m really proud of his efforts, especially knowing he is a busy minded little boy and has great difficulty concentrating and staying focused. I have to give credit to the kids Auskick coach, he is brilliant with the kids and keeping 50+ kids in line. He reminds me of the Pied Piper.

  • great team sport, any football code, kids learn fine motor skills, sharing and being part of a team, winning is not everything, playing with your mates and having fun is. A coach with good communication skills with young kids is invaluable.
