The Auskick registration fee is a one off payment for the season and it cannot be rolled over from one season to another. The start and end dates of the program will vary a little depending on the centre you choose.

Half Time Auskick opportunities

Unfortunately not all Auskickers are able to participate in half time matches each year. Each state has a selection process that occurs to identify groups to play at their respective venues throughout the season.

Please note that positions are limited to participate at these venues, playing at half time is a privledge to those who get the opportunity.

To find out more information about Half Time Auskick opportunities in your state, please contact your relevant state office.

 

Which Auskickers get to play on Grand Final Day?

NAB, the NAB AFL Auskick program’s major sponsor, select an NAB AFL Auskicker of the Week for 22 weeks across the season.

NAB contact the winners each week directly and it is these winners who go on to participate on Grand Final day and present the medals to the players.

The opportunity to register for the competition is open to all participants in the program and with over 175,000 participants across the country a large number register for the opportunity so with only 22 participants lucky enough to be selected it is as you can imagine a very popular competition. NAB make contact directly with winners a week or two out from when they are announced on Friday nights during the Channel 7 telecast.

I am interested in sponsorship with Auskick:

The main sponsor for the Auskick program is NAB, along with a network of other sponsors. Applications for sponsorship would need to go through AFL Head Office.
