It is with a very heavy heart that we have to announce that unfortunately due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Whittlesea Auskick has made the decision to NOT go ahead with our 2020 season.
This was not an easy decision for me to make, but in these unprecedented
times, the health and safety of our Auskickers and their families is my main priority !
With the current increase in COVID-19 cases in surrounding suburbs, I would rather not take any risks for our community .
The protocols to ensure everyones safety set by the AFL, state government and local council will be extremely difficult and costly for us to monitor and maintain.
As you have already registered for the 2020 Auskick season, you now have 2 options available to you:
1. You can transfer to another centre that is running
in Season 2020. Coordinators are in the process of updating their centre information and there may be another local centre who has
decided to run sessions.
This information can be found on the Auskick website
2. You can request a refund from AFL Auskick. We have been told that refunds would amount to the total cost charged minus the pack costs you received from AFL Auskick and a processing fee.
For either of these options, you will need to contact
Please be aware that the AFL is experiencing a high volume of emails currently so you may not receive a reply for 10+ business days. They too have been severely affected by Covid-19 and are doing their best.
I understand how extremely disappointing this is for our Auskickers, but Id still like to keep them involved
with Whittlesea Junior Football Club as much as I can.
With a little help from our Junior Football Club, I am hoping to be able to run a couple of Auskick activities later in the year or mini half time grid games at some of our junior football matches (provided the junior football season goes ahead as planned) with approval from NFNL.

I thank you all for your patience & understanding throughout this year.
Also a very big thank you to our coaches/parents Leigh Peterson,
Ben Brown and Nicole Brown who volunteered to help me run Auskick this year????
Stay safe and healthy everyone ,
We hope to see you back at Whittlesea Auskick in 2021!!
