Welcome to the Eastlake Auskick program, where young aspiring footballers embark on an exciting journey of skill development and team spirit! Our program caters to two age groups: Auskick Rookies for 5 and 6-year-old kids and Auskick Pros for 7 and 8-year-old kids.
The Auskick program is designed to introduce children to the fundamentals of Australian Rules Football in a fun and inclusive environment. Through engaging activities and games, our dedicated coaches foster a love for the game while nurturing essential skills such as kicking, handballing, marking, and teamwork.
For our 5 and 6-year-old rookies, we have a special program tailored to their age and ability. What sets our Rookies program apart is the involvement of our junior and senior players from the Eastlake Demons Football Club. These experienced players serve as mentors and role models, providing guidance and support to our young participants as they take their first steps into the world of football. This program runs for 8-weeks across all four terms and sessions are held weekly at Kingston oval. The session length is around 1 hour. Date and timings may differ from term to term.
Our Auskick Pros program is designed for 7 and 8-year-olds who are ready to take their skills to the next level. Building upon the foundation established in the Rookies program, our dedicated coaches focus on refining techniques, enhancing game awareness, and fostering teamwork. This program runs alongside the junior footy season (May to August). There is one training session on Fridays at Kingston Oval and one game on Weekends. Timing for training is 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm and games are played between 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.
At Eastlake Auskick, we believe in the holistic development of young athletes. Our programs not only emphasize skill acquisition but also instil important values such as respect, sportsmanship, and a love for an active lifestyle.
With the guidance of our passionate coaches and the support of the Eastlake Demons Football Club players, your child will have an unforgettable experience as they discover the joy of Australian Rules Football.
