Auskick Coordinator: Jake Fuentes
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Jake Fuentes as the Co-ordinator for the 2014 season.
Jake can be contacted on 0430 077 347 for further questions in relation to the forthcoming Auskick season
Jake is a current AFLQ "Auskick" assistant who is passionate about AFL & teaching young people who are interested in playing & learning AFL, he is also currently playing senior football with the Western Magpies at Sherwood
Our season is to commence on Friday 28th February 2014 from 5.00pm-6.00pm & will run each Friday on the rear "Auskick" oval under lights until Late April 2014.
We will again run a post Auskick season for returning players & new players commencing shortly afterwards as a modified session with timing to be announced.
On behalf of the Sherwood Australian Football Club and the management committee I would like to welcome all new and returning players and their families for another season of Fun, Family, and Fitness at the Sherwood Magpies Auskick Centre.
Our Club has continued to grow, and our junior footballers have met with many successes for more than 40 years, thanks mostly to the involvement and commitment of parents supporting these young athletes. I hope that your continued support will be as rewarding for you as it has been for me.
Auskick is a sport designed for children aged five to eleven years. They are encouraged to participate in all activitiesoffered by the centre and these activities are designed to develop eye hand coordination within a football context ie. Running, jumping, kicking, throwing etc.
This emphasis on full participation provides every opportunity for young athletes to develop balance, stamina, strength, coordination, and self control. The Auskick program is not about who won or lost, it is about encouraging each and every child to improve their skills as an individual, and also to develop an understanding of what it is to be a contributing member of a team.
It is about having Fun with new, and old, friends. Players are grouped in ages and many relationships are developed with others away from their regular circle of school friends. It is also about the Family playing together and growing strong together. The Coaches, Umpires, First Aiders, Ground Marshals, are all mums and dads just like you and I. Many have no previous experience, but without your effort nothing happens. You might consider gaining qualifications as an accredited coach, umpire, or first aid official. Every little bit helps our children in their development.
Finally Auskick is about developing Fitness in a safe and healthy environment. Football involves training sessions, warm up sessions, coaching, matches, and much encouragement and guidance from committed and caring parents.
I look forward to assisting you where I can to ensure that all Auskickers and their families enjoy the season ahead.
