Meet Lindsay from Collingwood Park Power AFL Auskick Program.
He is in his fourth year as an Auskick Coordinator and is doing an amazing job at Collingwood Park ensuring his Auskickers are enjoying themselves and learning about Aussie Rules! Thanks for all your hard work, Lindsay!
We had the opportunity to ask him a few questions regarding her program…
How many years in Auskick/club?
This is my 4th year at the club and helping with the NAB AFL Auskick program.
Why did you get involved in Auskick?
I started Auskick with my eldest son Mason.
I was approached by Scott (Collingwood Park Power President) to help out/coordinate and being out of footy in every way other than watching it on tv for twenty years and being unfit and carrying a lot of injuries I was apprehensive, to say the least.
Needless to say, I jumped in and found that because the kids were young my fitness wasn’t an issue and all I had to bring was a good attitude, a little footy knowledge and to have fun and that the kids would follow suit.
What is your favourite thing about Auskick?
Four years on and I still enjoy watching the kids grow throughout the season, not just footy skills but things like confidence with other people, discipline and respect for each other, and the sense of belonging.
