What is the cost?

The new Sports Voucher government Scheme will see the NAB AFL Auskick program cost participants $25 (metro) or $20 (country) for the program. If you decide not to redeem your ORS Sports Voucher at your local NAB AFL Auskick centre you will be charged a registration fee of $75 (metro) or $70 (country) for the program.

Please follow the prompts on the registration system to submit your ORS Sports Voucher and receive the reduce cost.

More information about the Sport Voucher program can be found at http://www.sportsvouchers.sa.gov.au/ Centres also have the opportunity to place a centre levy of up to $25 on the cost.

I would like to continue Auskick for another term in the same year; will it cost the same price?

If you would like to participate in another NAB AFL Auskick program after already participating in a full Auskick program in the same year the continuing Auskick participant $25 to re-register.

Please register as a re-registering participant through the online system, by selecting yes to the question ‘Have you completed a full Auskick Program this year’.

The $25 covers program costs, the 10 weeks of football skills and player insurance. Participants will not receive another participant benefits pack.

 

Why are there two different costs for the program?

There are certain benefits of the program that are much more accessible for participants in metropolitan areas than those in country areas. These include AFL player appearances and specific NAB AFL Auskick AFL club events and Super Clinics that cannot be conducted in regional areas due to the limitations on accessing AFL players and AFL club staff. For that reason, we have aimed to keep the registration cost for country participants as low as possible.

If you visit the NAB AFL Auskick website www.aflauskick.com.au and click on the register button it will take you to the centre locator. From here you will be able to enter your postcode to view a list of the closest centres operating in your area with all of the relevant contact details and start times.

The Auskick registration fee is a one off payment for the calendar year and it cannot be rolled over from one year to another. If you join a centre late during the year, please talk to the Auskick coordinator to see if there are any other programs operating later in the year nearby.

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 NAB.Auskick@afl.com.au

 

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.
