Interested in coaching Auskick 4-10yo’s?






Interested in coaching boys and girls aged 4-10 in the very structured environment of Auskick.  It’s a perfect opportunity for parents to get more involved, past & present players to share their knowledge, or for teenagers looking at a Physical Education or Teaching career to start developing their skills.

  • All drills are pre-planned for every session
  • Maximum size of 10 children per group
  • No time commitments outside of Friday Auskick 5:00 – 6:30pm (19 weeks from March 22nd)
  • You don’t even need a football background
  • But you must love kids though 😊

All you’ll need to do is –

  • Obtain a working with children check (free)
  • Complete an online coaching introduction course (free)
  • Review the online video of weekly drill’s

We already have 2 young men from the Keilor Park U19’s team in Daniel McGrady and Jai Villani coaching the 7 & 8 yo Auskickers, which is great for their own development, plus I’m sure the kids will love’em.

If you are interested in coaching our youngest and future AFL stars, please let our Keilor Park Auskick Centre Coordinator Peter McGrady know before March 22nd.   Also, we are after a Centre Assistant Coordinator to help with planning and weekly setups, so again if interested please let Peter know.

Contact Peter on or 0414 444 205.

Look after your teeth – Mouthguard Man (22/02/19)

Our players (juniors and seniors) are born with such beautiful smiles, so lets protect them with mouthguards all through their footy years.

And even though the U9’s competition (6, 7 or 8 yo’s) doesn’t involve tackling, it is still recommended that children wear a mouthguard even from that age.  In fact mouthguards are compulsory for all ages of Football.

You have 3 options in purchasing a mouthguard –

(1) Purchase from Chemist and fit yourself (cheapest option)

(2) Come along to Keilor Park Football Club on Friday 22nd Feb at 5:00-7:00pm and have the MouthGuard Man fit one for only $55 and delivered in just 2 weeks (recommended)

(3) Go to your local Dentist (most expensive option)
