    AFL Auskick takes over the 'G

    May 23, 2011

    AFL Victoria, in partnership with the MCC Foundation, hosted the NAB AFL Auskick at the ‘G event last Sunday.

    More than 600 kids from 20 metropolitan Auskick Centre’s joined forces with the Victorian Police Operations Response Unit to hold a special Auskick clinic at the MCG.  

    The kids involved on the day were given the rare opportunity to test their football skills on the MCG, an opportunity that even many parents were envious of.  

    Dean Leary, co-ordinator of the Greensborough Auskick Centre said the event gave the children new energy and confidence in their football abilities. Mr Leary said the great feedback from parents about the event makes the effort put in by all the volunteers to conduct the event worth it.  

    The event highlighted the important role NAB AFL Auskick plays in the community to build relationships and promote team work.  

    The Victorian Police played a crucial role in making the day a success for all the Auskickers involved on the day.  

    Sergeant Rebecca Marshall from the Operations Response Unit said the event allowed the Victorian Police officers to have ‘good positive interaction with the community’ and also show off their own football talents.

    NAB AFL Auskick at the ‘G has helped start to build the foundation for positive relationships between the Police and the community that local police can continue to grow.  

    Auskick looks forward to continue building the relationship with the Victorian Police through other events throughout the year.
