What is Auskick?

Each year, thousands of boys and girls throughout Australia take part in the AFL Auskick football clinics on Saturday mornings. Children from Prep through to Grade Six can join in the program that is designed to provide an environment where making friends, having fun with their parents/carers and improving their skills are the most important goals.

Regardless of their ability, children will improve their ball handling skills, health, fitness and confidence playing a team sport. Children also may get an opportunity to play a match on the MCG or Marvel Stadium – imagine that!

Fitzroy Junior Football Club (FJFC) Options

FJFC is the home of Junior footy in our area and with almost 700 boys and girls and over 30 teams, there is something for everyone!

Kids develop at different rates and Auskick is the perfect place to start a kids footy journey, but when they have the basics covered, junior football is the next step. Many kids do both Auskick and play Junior footy!

Junior footy games are played on Sunday mornings and kids can begin playing club footy/matches from Under 8’s (born in 2014), Under 9’s (born 2013), Under 10’s (born 2012) or even Under 11’s (born 2011). We also have girls’ specific teams from Under 10’s and older! A proof of age document will be required at time of registration.
