The Access All Abilities (AAA) NAB AFL Auskick program is designed to ensure that Auskick Centres are as inclusive as possible and that children of All Abilities have access to participate in the great game of AFL football.

The implementation of our Sensory Space at Boronia Auskick has been a significant reason for this recognition.

Sam Dunkinson, our Auskick Co-ordinator, uses the space to assist the kids who might get a little overwhelmed by everything and just need a quiet spot for a while.  The Club has been supported in this initiative through the generosity of our great supporter Sam Dib and Lipari Pizza Pasta.

Sam has got it all running smoothly, reflecting her training as a teacher.  Parents are getting involved in running the groups and we have senior players from both our men’s and women’s teams actively involved in helping the kids to develop their skills.

Sam has brought an enormous passion and commitment to Boronia Auskick, resulting in some great initiatives.  She has brought sponsors Boronia McDonalds and Lipari Pizza on board to assist with funding of new equipment including footballs and water bottles.  Sam has also introduced a Sensory Space to assist the kids who might get a little overwhelmed by everything and just need a quiet spot for a while.

Sam’s contribution to the Boronia Auskick has seen a real boost to our junior numbers with many Auskickers also choosing to play junior footy with Boronia Hawks.  Our two new Under 8’s teams are a direct result of the boost to our Auskick program over the past two years.
