Queensland launches another AFL Wheelchair first – AFL Wheelchair NAB AFL Auskick

In another first for Queensland, AFL Wheelchair – NAB AFL Auskick will be launching in Brisbane.  

As the first AFL Wheelchair – NAB AFL Auskick program in Queensland, it completes Queensland’s AFL Wheelchair pathway from Auskick to the Queensland State Team. 

Hosted at Sporting Wheelies Disabled Association at Milton, the program is open to all primary school age students who use a wheelchair, and their siblings. 

AFL Queensland’s Participation and Programs Manager – Schools, Inclusion and Diversity Jeff Neumann said he’s pleased that AFL Queensland now has a complete AFL Wheelchair pathway.  

“AFL Wheelchair – NAB AFL Auskick is the final piece to the AFL Wheelchair puzzle, giving kids the opportunity to play AFL right up until they leave primary school,” he said.  

“They’re able to then transition to the AFL Wheelchair Social Play Program before joining a team in our Queensland Wheelchair Football League, which can lead to representative opportunities with the Brisbane Lions, Gold Coast SUNS, and Queensland.  

“We’ve already seen significant growth in participation in AFL Wheelchair in Queensland, increasing by 56 per cent year-on-year thanks to our Queensland Wheelchair Football League and AFL Wheelchair – Social Play competitions, with registrations still coming in.  

“The introduction of AFL Wheelchair – NAB AFL Auskick is an important expansion and ensures AFL Wheelchair remains the fastest growing para-sport in the state.”
