2018 Auskick success

A huge round of thanks to everyone involved with the 2018 Auskick Program

Almost 180 boys and girls registered this season for what was a great introduction to the code of Aussie Rules for all of them.

"On behalf of the senior club we'd really like to thank all the volunteer organisers that have stepped forward throughout this year to help out," Senior President Tom Busher said.

This years program has been ably led again by Kylie & Rick Charles and a cast of more than a dozen key group coaches who have made sure each Friday night has been a great on field experience for the kids and terrific social event off field for families inside the club house post Auskick session.

Special mention has to go to the starting of a all girls Auskick squad which proved very popular.

As all participants had meals provided for the children post game inside the club by professional caterers Amorish Catering. This is done thanks to the sponsorship of Ryan Krikke's Bunbury Subaru, Cam Reid's Resonate Homes, The Village Australind (Vuhelic Group), Doral Mineral Sands, Global Diagnostics, Nic Demarte's Halifax Crane Hire, Grahan & Pat Butler and the Apprenticeship Training Centre.

"The social occasion created by this post auskick session interaction is just as important for the kids as we have a catchment from across the whole of the greater Bunbury region and the Friday night meals give the parents and children a chance to catch up and get to know one another before their kids progress into junior grades in the next 12 months to 2 years" said Tom.

Special mention goes to all the mums who have helped out with the "mad 20 minutes" of meal distribution when the kids come in to the club at 6pm.

Look out for the kick off for Auskick 2019 in mid March!
