Registrations Now Open
Due to the unpredictability of lockdowns on sporting events, the 2021 season will be run slightly differently than previous seasons,
to allow us to be more flexible in the event we have to pause, reduce the length or cancel the season.
These changes are as follows;
- Games / Trainings to be run together at a single location, rather than as 4 separate clubs / grounds. We will likely alternate between Happy Valley Recreational Ground (Typhoons home ground) and Po Kong Village Ground (PKVR Cricket Pitch) in Diamond Hill
- Single reversible red/blue guernsey (top) for all clubs/players, rather than 4 individual club tops
- White space to write player’s name on top, rather than printed personalised name
Girls: We will still look to separate older girls (U10s and up) into girls only training / games where numbers make it possible.
Too old to play U12? Auskick & Junior AFL are keen to provide girls the opportunity to start or continue playing AFL here in Hong Kong, so girls that are older than U12 (but still below U16) can still sign up. Our coaches will group girls of similar size & skill level
Registration fees covers 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, containing the following:
Double-sided red/blue top (guernsey), blue shorts & socks
Auskick branded hat
Auskick branded bag
AFL Sherrin football

New Indigenous Designs for 2020
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)
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)
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 (J-L is 81-83cm, so we recommend ordering next size up)
Size to order: XXS
Example 2 (Age 12)
Waist = 76cm (J-S is 72-78cm, so we recommend ordering next size up)
Size to order: J-M
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.
2020 Season 'Early-Bird Discount' Registration Now Open
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.
