AFL PNG is set to launch its Niukick Program this Saturday, targeting 10 000 students in the Nation’s Capital.
The Niukick Program is a Junior Development Program, derived from Auskick Rules, which was designed to develop and promote high football participation amongst children.
Currently the experienced AFL players are now on ground preparing to carry out the program.
The Niukick Program is a similar program run by the Auskick rules, which caters for school-aged children between 5 and 15.
A total of 12 schools in NCD will be visited by AFL PNG’s Development Officers, in term one, and promised to have another 30 schools by the end of the year.
Papau says AFL PNG is proud of the quality and growth of the Junior Programs
He says AFL PNG is grateful to partner with the Department of Education to carry out the program.
Included in the program is a new approach taken by AFL PNG to involve stakeholders such as the PNG Assembly of Disabled Persons, Cancer Foundation, and National Narcotics Bureau to carry out the advocacy program.
With the increased support from the Australian Football League and corporate sponsors, AFL PNG is in a good position to further develop the sport from the grassroots level up to the senior level.
The Niukick Program will be launched this Saturday.
