AFL KiwiKick Online

AFL New Zealand’s ‘AFL KiwiKick’ programme focuses on developing fundamental movement and ball skills for boys and girls between 5 to 12 years of age.

The programme places great emphasis on parent involvement and community links. Organised lesson plans, volunteer retention initiatives, resource kits and coaching accreditation are all features of AFL KiwiKick.

The fundamental skills of ‘Kick, Catch, Pass and Bounce’ are utilised throughout the AFL KiwiKick Programme and are transferable to a wide range of sports.

AFL New Zealand is working in conjunction with Sport New Zealand and a growing number of Regional Sports Trusts to ensure the outcomes targeted by the programme fall into alignment with the needs of local communities.

AFL KiwiKick provides a great skill base for students and their transition from primary to intermediate and on to secondary school sport. It is for boys and girls, mums and dads.

AFL KiwiKick is fun, it’s safe and it works!
