Hampton Rovers Auskick offers a full range of footy skills for kids aged 5 – 12 years old.
Whether you are just starting out, or joining for some additional skills training to boost your game, each of our sessions are jam packed with development opportunities, fun and friendships.
We also run a GIRLS only group for all ages, play half time games for all Hampton Rovers senior home games and provide a lot of other opportunities to get your hands on (and feet) onto a footy. Kids in grade 1 this year will get the opportunity to play half time AFL game on the MCG or Marvel Stadium. We also have the opportunity to play a half time game at a Sandringham VFL match during the season which is open to all kids.
Hampton Rovers Auskick is a 100% volunteer program, so we really appreciate your help in some small way to make the program a success. There are a number of roles where parents are encouraged to become involved by coaching, coaching assistants, cutting fruit, first aid contact or assisting with general administration and fund raising activities. When completing your on-line registration, please select a role you may be interested in undertaking and our friendly co-ordinators will get in contact with you prior to the season commencement. Come join in the fun and be a part of the great Hampton Rovers community spirit!
We’d love to see your child play Auskick at Hampton Rovers in 2020!

What time do I arrive?

Our sessions finish at 10:30 am and providing the Rovers aren’t playing a home game after the session, you are welcome to stay on a have a kick (byo footy).
Where do I go?
Each session will be run at Boss James Reserve, David St Hampton (unless otherwise communicated). When you first arrive, go onto the field for a kick of the footy (byo footy) and then a 9am the coaches will blow the whistle to bring kids AND parents into a huddle on the ground.
What do I need to wear?
There are no specific rules about uniform for Auskick sessions. The kids just need to wear comfortable clothing, however the majority of kids will wear their team footy Jerseys, short and socks. Runners are ok in the first couple of weeks, but once the ground gets slippery or muddy, you’ll find that they will need some footy boots.
What do I need to bring?
- byo footy if you want to stay on and have a kick
- a piece of fruit – this gets chopped up and the kids have a fruit break at half time
- a drink bottle – it is important to keep the kids well hydrated and there are no bubble taps at the ground
