ABOUT THE ROLE
Two years ago the AFL conducted a comprehensive review of the NAB AFL Auskick program. This review identified a need for a refreshed approach to coaching Auskick and the introduction of a new program curriculum.
During the 2017 season, the AFL ran an extensive 4-month pilot program with a range of Auskick centres to test a host of new initiatives relating to coaching, curriculum & parental involvement. The results of this pilot shaped the updated official NAB AFL Auskick program, which was rolled out across the country in 2018.
This new Auskick program was designed to increase the enjoyment and skill levels of Auskick participants, as well as provide volunteers and parents with the tools and support (new equipment, better learning resources) they need to implement the program confidently and successfully.
NAB AFL Auskick Champions are critical to the rollout of the updated Auskick program in the Melbourne metropolitan area in 2018. NAB AFL Auskick Champions are the AFL’s Auskick experts on the ground, ensuring Auskick centres successfully adopt the new Auskick program.
NAB AFL Auskick Champions will support a localised cluster of Auskick centres and centre coordinators. They will focus on critical areas including coaching/curriculum, equipment, administration and parent helper recruitment, with the aim of providing participants a high-quality, engaging experience resulting in greater retention in the program.
NAB AFL Auskick Champions will provide the AFL with feedback & share their observations to drive the establishment of best practice program delivery across the Auskick centre network
