AFTER a lackluster footy season in 2020, many eager kids across the Greater Shepparton region and beyond were thrilled as Auskick commenced for 2021.

Tatura & District Auskick has 70 children enrolled for the season and Mooroopna Auskick 64, with the community and parents coming together to make it possible each child to get a chance to participate.

“We have so many great hands on deck this year. Local footy legends helping coach and ensure it all runs smoothly, we are looking forward to everyone getting out there and having fun this year,” said Tatura & District Auskick co-ordinator, Andrew Speed.

NAB AFL Auskick is an introduction for kids into the world of Australian Football. Auskickers run, jump, kick, laugh, express themselves with friends. It is inclusive for everyone aged 5-12, at any ability to play.

“It’s such a great opportunity for kids to get out there, have fun and make new friends. Anyone can play and it’s wonderful to see so many kids enrolled this year,” said Andrew.
