Hello to all Hong Kong Auskick and Junior Footy families and welcome to the start of a bumper year of kids footy. Last year was the most successful so far for us in Hong Kong, with around 450 kids registered.  Many thanks to our outgoing president (Tom Longbottom), the club heads and all volunteers for a great year.

The 2016 season will feature a new website and registration system to launch when registrations open shortly.  Kit distribution and welcome events are planned for the week after the HK Rugby 7s, with footy sessions to then kick off on the weekend of 23 / 24 April 2016. We are also hoping to announce some informal pre-season activities to be held from late March onwards.

Most importantly, we are seeking volunteers to join the 2016 organising committees at each of the five Clubs. You don’t need to have any footy background, just some organisational skills and the time to meet about twice a month from now until end of season to help manage coaching, club communications, social events and logistics such as ground arrangements, kid’s kit and footy equipment.  Yes, this means we’re particularly keen to add some multi-tasking footy mums to our Club committees in Kowloon, Lantau (DB), Sai Kung, Sandy Bay (Pok Fu Lam) and Happy Valley (South Island).

Our program is run entirely by volunteers, and the success of our program and at each of our locations is on us, If you have the time and skills to contribute then please email us at hk.auskick@gmail.comincluding your Club and any specific experience or areas of interest (e.g. comms, social) that you have.

Footy’s back!

Regards

Wayne Henrys
