If your children have been happily spending their summer in the swimming pool, or perhaps smashing a few tennis balls or scoring runs on the cricket pitch, you might be wondering with the change of seasons fast approaching, just how you’ll continue to help them burn off their oodles of energy.
If your kids love to run around, and you want to find a fun way for them to get some exercise while improving their motor skills and meeting loads of new friends, Auskick might just be what you’re looking for. The focus of the program is on participation rather than ability, and according to their website, children involved in Auskick generally develop greater levels of confidence and self-awareness and improved health, fitness and overall well-being.
Mudgee Auskick is held at Victoria Park in Perry Street, and we’ve heard great things about the program they run from parents and children in and around Mudgee. Registrations are now open for the 2013 season. For your registration fee you’ll not only have a winter season full of fun, your child will receive a backpack filled with goodies, including their own synthetic Sherrin football, football pump, cap, drink bottle, magnets, pencils, activity books, plus more!
If you have primary school aged children and would like to know more about getting them involved, please visit the Auskick website at aflauskick.com.au.
