Auskick and Youth Development are critical to the success of the new AFL Asia.
Already, there are many exciting stories from around the region.
Hong Kong and Singapore each have over 300 kids enrolled in their respective Auskick programs. In Indonesia, the Jakarta Bintangs reach over 100 nationals each week while the Borneo Bears have numerous nationals playing in their team.
In Bangkok, Phil Stevens has 50 kids in his program while in Saigon there are 30 enrolled.
A few months ago, the Cambodian Eagles took Auskick to a village – and were swamped by 800 kids!!
Phil Stevens is currently doing an audit of all clubs in Asia to find out exactly how many kids are involved with Auskick. Details will be published as soon as they are available.
