Learn how to play

Footy is Australia’s favourite sport which is loved and played by kids across every corner of South Australia. There’s a range of programs we run in every part of the State, from AFL Auskick to school holiday programs to playing competition footy for your local club.
We’re all about making footy fun, getting kids active, teaching skills, and helping boys' and girls' reach their dream of playing at an elite level. Find out which footy program is right for you.
