Auskick News April 2008


    Ruskin Park Auskick News


Hi Everyone, Welcome back to all our players from last year and a warm welcome to all our new auskickers and parents. April 12th saw Ruskin Park Auskick get underway for season 2008 with around 30 children in the Junior level, 25 in the Intermediate level and 10 in the Senior level. This is a great result as we have only just started.

We now have our largest junior level since my time at Auskick and this stands us well for the future.

Coaching appointments have been made for 2008 and are as follows:

Senior Coach – Cam Dall

Intermediate Coach – Stuart Thomas

Junior Coach – Steve Davidson (acting)

We still need a full time Junior Coach and will be appointing one as soon as possible.


This year will be another full season with Clinics, Skills tests and Interclinics against Mooroolbark and possibly Croydon Auskick Centres.

Seniors will have an AFL Auskick game at the MCG Donning the Melbourne Colors, a great experience for our 4, 5 and 6’s.

Intermediates will have a Grid game on the same day


Our Richmond Player visit will be on May 31st, this is a great opportunity to meet, talk and learn some skills from an AFL player.

The Round Robin has been set for June 21st at Eastfeild Park, this is an eight clinic competition for Grades 2,3,4,5 and 6, this year we will be defending our title as “Senior Champions” good luck guys.

As usual we will have our Grandparents Day, Banner Day, Olympics Day and our Parents night out, we may also throw in a fundraiser along the way.


We are lucky enough to have the full support of the school and its facilities especially the canteen, where the money you spend goes back into the clinic in the form of equipment and giveaways.


So lets get behind the kids this year and give them a great 2008

Go Ruskin!
