AFL Masters QuickKick is an entry level program for women aged 35 and over who want to play footy. Safe, friendly and casual, QuickKick sessions are free and held fortnightly in all States and Territories. They are designed to teach the basic skills of football (marking, kicking, handpassing) as well as the rules of the game.
Held across the nation, QuickKick is a fun, relaxed gathering of like-minded women who have always wanted to give footy a go but never got the chance when they were younger.
QuickKick is the first stage of our Women’s Participation project, a five-level national program – from grassroots to international – aimed to encourage middle-aged/older women (35 and over) to safely participate in Australian Football. The project was established in January 2022 thanks to seed funding via a Sport Australia grant to assist AFL Masters increase the participation rate of women playing our great code.
The objective of the project is to deliver a sport that is inclusive, fun, safe and provides a sense of belonging to participants. Inspired by the AFL’s successful Auskick program, we aim to provide a cost-attractive option for those seeking either physical fitness or social interaction amongst aged-peers whilst also developing the next generation of coaches.
With women’s Masters representative football first played at the AFL Masters National Carnival in 2016. QuickKick – and the Women’s Participation project in general – builds on these initial foundations laid six years ago.
The AFL Masters QuickKick program is being delivered across all 9 AFL Masters member bodies in a flexible format dependent on the level of football maturity of each State/Territory (as determined by the National and State/Territory Development Officers). Of utmost importance, our aim is that the delivery is culturally appropriate and involves regular community consultation.
Fun, safe and inclusive, our QuickKick clinics are designed to awaken your inner footballer! No skills or experience needed … just a can do attitude, a smile and a sense of fun.
Due to the funding from our Sport Australia Grant, we are ecstatic to announce that there is nil cost to participate in AFL Masters QuickKick in 2022.
