Auskick

If your child was born between 2009 and 2012 they are eligible to play Auskick in 2017. Registration for Auskick can be completed here: www.aflauskick.com.au. Just put in 'Newtown Swans' in the centre locator.

For more information about registering for Auskick, please email moc.kooltuo@kciksuasnawsnwotwen.

New players are always welcome! Please read the information below and contact us if you have any other questions.

Age groups

Player grouping is based on the age that a player will turn in the calendar year. eg if your child has turned or will turn 7 in 2017 they will play in the Under 7s regardless of the month in which their birthday occurs.

 

Specifically

  • Players born in 2012 will play in Under 5s.

  • Players born in 2011 will play in Under 6s

  • Players born in 2010 will play in Under 7s

  • Players born in 2009 will play in Under 8s

 

Occasionally players may play ‘up’ an age group, but this needs to be approved by the Auskick Coordinator, Arvind Sampath, in consultation with the relevant coaches and club Registrar.

Players born before 2009 will play in the relevant Juniors or Youth team.

Training

Training is on Wednesday nights 5pm. Starting March 15

Home/Away Games

  • u5s and u6s - 8:10am

The Newtown Swans home games are at Alan Davidson Oval (ADO) at Sydney Park. Away games are played against other clubs in the Sydney City area. Paddington, Maroubra, Drummoyne, Concord, Glebe, Ashbury and Moore Park.

Gear

The club provides socks and shorts to players. The launder of these items is the responsibility of the parents. For returning players who already have socks and shorts that fit, please re use them.

Auskick Pack

This year the packs are being emailed directly to players. The pack mailouts are due to commence the week beginning March 6.

Jumpers remain the property of Newtown Swan.

Numbered ‘Newtown Swans’ jerseys are distributed to players on game day and laundered by a parent volunteer each week ready for the next game day. Many Auskickers choose to wear football boots to help prevent slipping on field, however regular runners are fine if the player is comfortable wearing them!

Please make sure that your child has an adult at all games and training sessions. Parent assistance at training is always appreciated!

Newtown Swans is run entirely by volunteers.

We need you! All families will need to help out with canteen or BBQ duties during home games. The club can only exist thanks to the dedication of our volunteers so please get involved! Check out our ‘Volunteers’ page at www.newtownswans.com.au to find out some of the other ways that you can help out at the club!
