Is there an Auskick centre that caters for special needs kids?

We recommend you contact your local NAB AFL Auskick centre to see if they can specifically cater for your child’s needs. There are a number of AAA side by side groups established at a number of Auskick centres. For further assistance please contact your state office or check out the centres on this link http://www.aflvic.com.au/auskick/access-abilities-auskick/

What is a AAA group?

AAA (all Abilities Access) Auskcik falls into 2 categories. There may be an AFL NAB Auskick centre that is purely for AAA participants. It is best to contact the centre coordinator to enquire if this centre is suited for your child. There are AAA side by side groups that run inconjunction with a mainstream NAB AFL Auskick centre. This allows the opproutnity for participants to participate in thier own group or have an option to participate in their grade level at any time when they feel comfortable to do so.

Are there All Girls Groups/Centres?

There are some all Girl’s NAB AFL Auskick centres available throughout the state. A number of centres also run an All Girl’s group side by side. Girls are able to participate in this group and at any time join their age appropriate group.

I registered late in the season so do I need to pay again next year?

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.

Auskick Half Time at Etihad

Auskick participants are seated on Level 3 in Aisle 20. The participants have reserved seating but the seating in nearby aisles may be accessible to the general public if it has not been pre-sold.
If you purchase a General Admission ticket you might be able to sit in the aisle next to the Auskick participants, provided this area has not been pre-sold.

Tickets for matches at Etihad Stadium can be purchased either at the gate or pre-purchased through Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.com.au or 136 100).

Check with your coordinator who will have received ionformation from the NAB AFL Auskick Half time volunteers.

Auskick Half Time at the MCG

The Auskick participants are generally seated in the AFL Member’s section in M27 at the MCG, which is the last aisle in the AFL Member’s Reserve on the lower level at the city end. This area is not accessible to the general public. Parents and family have the opportunity to purchase additional tickets in the aisle nearby. There is a limited supply of these tickets, so families need to purchase these a.s.a.p. The next nearest seating is the General Admission area of the Ponsford Stand. Once you purchase a General Admission ticket you might be able to sit in the aisle next to the Auskick participants which will be in the Ponsford Stand, provided this area has not been pre-sold. Tickets for matches at the MCG can be purchased either at the gate or pre-purchased through Ticketek (www.ticketek.com.au or 132 849).

Check with your coordinator who will have received information from the NAB AFL Auskick Half time volunteers

Questions regarding MCG / Etihad half time games:

Unfortunately, not all Auskickers are able to participate in half time matches every year. Firstly, to be eligible, kids must be in grades 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6. They must be registered and paid for the current year of Auskick. AFL Victoria allocates a certain number of games to regions based on the percentage of auskickers the region has in the state. Centres chosen to participate are picked by the region. Participants will then be chosen at the discretion of the Auskick centre.

 

Please note that roughly only 10,000 Auskickers are given the opportunity to participate out of the 50,000 Auskickers in the state so playing at half time is a privledge to those who get the opportunity. Any questions relating to allocations should be directed to your regional staff member.

I am a centre coordinator and have not received information about our half time game

You should have been contacted approximately a week prior to your game with all relevant information. Please ensure you check your emails (including junk mail) to see if it has been received. If you have not received the information by Tuesday the week before your game then please contact your Regional Football Manager.

How many tickets can parents get when child is playing Auskick/Grid Halftime

Each NAB AFL Auskicker gets one ticket for themselves and one for an accompanying adult if they are playing in a Grid Game.  They get one ticket for themselves and two for an accompanying adult if they are playing in an Auskick Rules match.

Auskick participants playing in finals

Centre Coordinators in Victoria will be sent an expression of interest to participate in finals games through their Regional staff member. It should be noted that during finals Auskick participants receive a complimentary ticket but parents must purchase their own in the price category of allocated seats. Centres put in an expression of interest to participate and these opportunities will be spread throughout Victoria. No centre is guaranteed an opportunity.

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.

Requests for footage and photo’s from Half time matches

The Auskick half time games are not filmed, the snap shots that are shown on TV are owned by the station that is showing the game (Channel 7 or Fox Footy). The best thing to do to obtain a copy would be to get in contact with the TV station that showed the game

 

We do not have a contact for anyone at Channel 7 in regards to obtaining this footage.

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.
