The Werribee Football Club hosted the annual Wyndham level 0 Auskick coaching course on May 2nd under the guidance of Community Development Manager, Chris Gallagher.
The night was attended by 60 aspiring Auskick coaches, many in their first year as parents of children participating in Auskick.
North Melbourne Football Club Development Coach Gavin Brown was a guest speaker on the night. He spoke of the importance of Auskick coaches to engage young children while keeping the sessions fun and inclusive. Gavin also answered some challenging questions involving scenarios that occur every weekend at Auskick centres across Wyndham.
The night finished with a one hour practical session conducted by Auskick coordinators and AFL Victoria staff. This covered a typical Auskick session plus explanations of effective coaching techniques and games to keep kids interested and involved.
