Registrations Now Open
With the situation in Hong Kong improving the Auskick season is underway. Training is running weekly on Saturday mornings at Discovery Bay and U16’s at Happy Valley on either Friday night or Saturday afternoon.
Pitch availability is currently preventing us from running the main HK/ Kowloon session which includes the Girls team. We are looking to start up when the situation allows.
With a shortened season, we are offering “Free Footy” this season. This creates a great opportunity for new players to come and try no strings attached. It does however mean we will not be providing new player uniforms this season.
To help us plan, we still need players to register this year.
Please kick on the following link to sign-up and register via Team Snap. There is also an opportunity for parents to volunteer to help the kids at Auskick in this process. Without volunteers there is no Auskick so please help out if you can.
Registration fees cover the cost of facilities hire for the whole season (our most significant cost), club equipment,
subsidised transport for teams to some away games and players’ kit. In order to keep costs down for the 2022 season, as well as reduce unwanted items from returning players, we’ve made some items available for separate purchase.
Double-sided red/blue top (guernsey), blue shorts (included)
Auskick branded hat (available for separate purchase)
Auskick branded bag (available for separate purchase)
AFL football (available for separate purchase)
Player mouth guards are NOT included as part of our player kit, however are recommended for regular training and are MANDATORY for every match (U8 – U16 level). Hong Kong Auskick & Junior AFL does not endorse any specific supplier or brand, however please refer to the following list of businesses where you can purchase mouth guards.

New Indigenous Design for 2021
We’re very happy to announce that this year we’re introducing a new kit design that incorporates Indigenous artwork from Aboriginal artist Amunda Gorey. Amunda has previously provided her artwork to the Singapore Sharks Auskick group, and has kindly agreed to share her designs with Hong Kong Auskick as well.
Before you start the registration process, use the following guide to determine your child’s kit size.
**Please ensure you check your child’s measurements, and follow the recommendations below carefully,
as we’re unable to change kit once orders have been made.
Measure the widest part of the torso (i.e. chest or stomach).
As this is a fitted measurement, *we suggest you add +5cm to the total for a comfortable fit
Example 1 (Age 10)
Chest = 80cm | Stomach = 83cm (widest part is 83cm)
so, 83cm + 5cm* (to allow additional room for movement) = 88cm
Size to order: XXS
Example 2 (Age 12)
Chest = 75 cm | Stomach = 75cm (widest part is 75cm)
so, 75cm + 5cm* (to allow additional room for movement) = 80cm
Size to order: J-L
Measure low on your child’s hips (where your child will likely wear his or her shorts).
*For measurements that are near to the size limit for that size, we recommend going with the next size, as the shorts are elastic with a draw string, so they can be tightened.
Example 1 (Age 10)
Waist = 83cm (S is 81.3-86.3cm, *so we recommend ordering next size up)
Size to order: M
Example 2 (Age 12)
Waist = 76cm (XS is 76-81.2cm, *so we recommend ordering next size up)
Size to order: S
We use teamsnap for handling player registrations & payment (via Paypal) as well as weekly scheduling through-out the season. If someone in the family already has a TeamSnap login (either from a previous year playing in Auskick or from another sporting club) you can re-use your account for your child’s registration. If you do not have an existing login, then you’ll need to create one as part of the registration process.
*From 2020, Hong Kong Auskick is switching registration payment exclusively to PayPal, and will no longer be offering bank transfer as an option. This is to drastically reduce the admin work that comes with matching payments with individual players. We appreciate people’s understanding in regards to this change.
Once you have registered and your child is assigned to their team, you can use the TeamSnap website, iPhone or Android app to see the schedule for your child’s Auskick trainings and games, as well as indicate if your child will be available each week. In addition, you may receive communication directly from your child’s coaches, and you can use teamsnap to send messages directly to them as well.
This year we are again asking you to provide details of player and parent ‘Country of Birth’ and ‘Player School’. We use this information to help us in our efforts to register as a Hong Kong National Sports Association. This registration would greatly improve access to facilities bookings for all our Clubs.

REGISter (COACH / HELPER)
Hong Kong Auskick is run completely by volunteers so the more people that get involved, the better it is for both the kids and the parents alike. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never kicked a football or even watched a game, we’re looking for anyone that is keen to help coach, or even assist other coaches on the field. HK Auskick provides coaching resources including training plans, online reference material and a pre-season coaches clinic to all coaches and assistants, and there’s a great community of other volunteers around you to help you out.
Please consider putting your hand up and help us continue to grow Auskick & Junior AFL in Hong Kong.
