EMPOWER AND ENABLE GIRLS
TO PLAY AFL IN HONG KONG

Register for 2022 Season

We are a very friendly bunch who would love to see you come along and give it a go.

Don’t know how to play?
Don’t know the rules?
Don’t know anyone else?
Doesn’t matter!

‘Empower and Enable the Women’s Game at all levels’ is the Australian Football League Women’s vision, and the Hong Kong Auskick Committee are committed to increasing the participation of girls and teens playing AFL. Australian Rules Football is a brilliant sport for developing fitness, agility, coordination and ball skills and will definitely compliment and consolidate your skills for any other sport you play.

Not sure if AFL is for you? We welcome all girls to attend training for a 2 week trial to see if they like the sport. After this time, we will ask you to register and order your uniform for the coming season.

Season 2022 Details:

We are crossing our fingers that the Auskick Season can start in April as planned, however at this stage, all sport is contingent on Covid-19 Restrictions. The season usually runs from approximately April-September dependent on the start date and pitch availability.

The 2022 season will consist of weekly training which includes a combination of skills and games.

Registration Cost: TBC

Uniforms: The uniform cost is covered by the registration fees. During the registration process, you will be directed to order your uniform which will be sent directly to your home. You will need your own trainers/football/ rugby boots and a mouth guard.

PARENTS/CAREGIVERS WANT TO GET INVOLVED??? WE NEED YOU.

We love it when parents help us out and the Girls Section is looking for parent volunteers as follows:

  1. Coaching assistants. We are always grateful for either Mums or Dads to help out coaching and organisation on training days.
  2. Social coordinator: To help organise the Season opening, Gala Day and End of Season party.
  3. Social media and website: To take photos during training and social events and pass them onto the Administration assistant.
  4. Canteen: Most weeks, we need some extra bodies to help with icy poles, footy cards, uniform distribution etc.. You don’t need to help out every week but if you were wiling to spare a few hours over the season, we’d be grateful.

*Please indicate on the registration form if you would be willing to lend a hand throughout the season.

MEET YOUR COACHES


Name: Coach Blake

Favourite AFL Women’s Team: Western Bulldogs

Favourite AFL Men’s Team: Western Bulldogs

Favourite Player: Aaron Naughton and Erin Phillips

Why do you like coaching the girls: For the looks on their faces when they hit a great kick or slot a goal. You can see the confidence build each week, and then by the end of the season they are ready to take on anyone.

Best part of the footy season: Those 30 minutes after a win

Worst part of the footy season: Being sore on a Monday

Favourite Quote: “The harder I work the luckier I get.”



Name: Coach Leith

Favourite AFL Women’s Team: Gold Coast Suns

Favourite AFL Men’s Team: Brisbane Lions

Favourite Player: Maddison Levi & Dusty Martin

Why do you like coaching the girls: I love watching the girls, regardless of age or ability work together during training and encourage and support each other. They love to have fun but are extremely competitive as well…we definitely have some rising stars.

Best part of the footy season: I love watching a player master a skill for the first time and I love seeing a mix of kids and parents turn up every single Saturday. Auskick have done a fantastic job at creating a great community.

Worst part of the footy season: The heat

Favourite Quote: “You can’t be, what you can’t see.”


Name: Coach Brooksy

Favourite AFL Women’s Team: The Mighty Dees

Favourite AFL Men’s Team: The Mighty Dees

Favourite Player: Daisy Pearce (also a ripping commentator) and Clayton Oliver

Why do you like coaching the girls: They have fun, try their hardest, don’t complain, want to improve and sometimes listen to me.

Best part of the footy season: Finals! Spring has sprung, the days are getting longer, the ball whizzes around at training and there’s a smell of cut grass in the air!

Worst part of the footy season: Wet, heavy balls at mid-week training on cold Winter nights (nothing we have to worry about in Hong Kong!)

Favourite Quote: “Tough times don’t last, tough people do.”
