Will AusKick be axed ?

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

It was announced on ABC radio,  today , 4th November 2010 , that ” VicSwim” ,  the school holiday , learn to swim program , may be axed.

Is this  wise ? considering that Australia is a  vast , island  continent  , surrounded on all sides by the sea . It is estimated that at least 18 % of young people cannot swim , and a further 25% of adults , also cannot swim .

It begs the question , ” Will AusKick be scrapped ? “

The popular,  afl football clinic , has become an entrenched  part , of the Saturday morning routine , for families , with children of a certain age . All go along to the match , wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , to learn how to play Aussie Rules .

Two ovals , two teams playing Cricket in their traditional white sporting gear.

A cluster of parents and supporters are looking on . Several , are wearing their AFL Football Jumpers , Jerseys , Guernseys.

Each is  playing footy , proudly wearing their team’s , football jumpers , jerseys , guerneys .

Thousands of young people , male and female ,all around the country, take to footy ovals on a wet , cold, saturday morning , to play the game they have grown up with.

Clearly, its a game they have also grown to love . Why else would they brave the artic weather conditions, mud slides, and an early rise on a winters saturday morning .? Its all part of the fun .

Supporters too , meet , greet ,cheer , have a yarn and a laugh , all barracking for their team in their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys .

Maybe they’ll witness a future Robert Harvey take a screamer , or maybe not .

Its just good fun at the footy .
