Niukick Logo & Banner Launched

There’s progress for AFL PNG with its development program which begin early this year.

The Niukick program similar to Auskick Program will cater for school aged children between five and 15.


Today saw the launch of the logo and banner at Koki primary School in Port Moresby.


For a very first time, the Koki Primary School was fortunate to have the PNG Mosquitoes reps to visit their school.


They were part of the launching of the AFL PNG Niukick Program logo and banner.


The Gotuno brothers Brendon and Ezra, Emmanuel Tupia, Laurie Logo and David Topeni have a mammoth task ahead.


They are part of the travelling Mosquitoes team next month to participate in the International Cup in Melbourne. 


Their presence at the launch looked promising and encouraging the young ones to take up the sport.


The AFL PNG Junior Football Manager, Cornelius Papau was grateful to receive positive feedback from schools visited so far earlier this year and appreciated the fact that Koki Primary School was chosen to witness the launch of the Niukick logo and banner. 


The NCDC Youth Desk has been very supportive to have this program get going including the NCDC Social Service Division.


NCDC Social Services Manager Kila Dick presented a cheque of more than 16 thousand Kina on behalf of the NCD Governor Powes Parkop to help roll out the program


Mr Dick says NCD looks at investing in human resource as this is the key component of development.


And social services like sporting activities are part and parcel of the healthy living like the AFL Theme says it all ‘footy is more than just a game’
