skillsAustralian Football is a game for all ages, with competitions starting at primary school and going through to Master Rules (over-35s).

Aussie Rules can be practised alone by kicking the ball and marking it yourself or handballing at a target, in pairs with a ‘kick-to-kick’ session in the park or with a full-on game.

The best way to develop skills is to keep them simple and fun before moving on to more advanced routines, during which simulated game pressure and increased speed are added. Skill development is an area that players of all levels continually work on.
