August Auskick Accelerates

posted Aug 3, 2014, 4:24 PM by Auskick SaraHawks
Today the Auskick kids took on their biggest challenge of the year, the time trial obstacle course. 

After a Rod’s run they trained hard taking on the tag tangle, before focusing on their skills. Sam, Isaac, Chloe, and some massive kicks from Tyler were easily recognized, but Oliver’s effort was outstanding in the kicking and catching practice. The reds went through the obstacle course first this week (with Dean leading the pack). We thought that was a high mark to match, but along comes the black team and Lucas. He blitzed the course and won the day with the best time by far.

We played a quick game at the end and I’m really proud of all the kids that are always having a go, passing well to their team mates and kicking some great goals as a result. I also saw some terrific spoils from Spencer and then a great run of play in which Charli passed to Georgia, who kicked to Tyler, then to Arian who saw James in space a landed it right on his chest. James scored to finish it off beautifully. 

Next week we will focus on kicking and marking and play a parent kid game for a bit of fun (parents bring your boots or joggers).

Player of the week: Lucas T, Coaches award: Oliver Z
