What to expect at Rye AFL Auskick Centre

Rye AFL Auskick fosters a fun environment where kids have the freedom to run, jump, kick, laugh and express themselves. We start from the very beginning, teaching all kids the basics of Australian Football. As we know that all kids are different, learn differently and at different speeds, we make sure that the program is tailored to suit all individual needs. As parents, you can also enjoy Rye AFL Auskick knowing your child is safe, included and active.
The Rye AFL Auskick program has been designed to let kids learn through play. During weekly sessions kids build fundamental motor skills and learn what it means to play as part of a team. Though session plans vary week-to-week, most will incorporate elements of structured skill development along with free play opportunities.
