Get the kids ready, their AFL career is about to commence. Auskick is coming again in 2015-16.

Could we have the first AFL player who commenced their career in Qatar in our midst?  Do we really care?  No not really, because Auskick is about the fun, safe introduction to Australian Football.  Teaching the basic skills, instilling confidence, and developing team work. It is a great way to get the kids involved in our unique game whilst helping to develop a sporting habit and burn off some energy.

Boys and girls aged 5 to 12 are all welcome.

Kangaroos Season Opener

The Doha Kangaroos kicked of their season  against the Abu Dhabi Falcons on Friday October 23rd.
In what was a close hard fought match the Falcons came out victorious: Falcons 13 – 9 – 87 defeated Kangroos 12 – 2 – 74

Injuries to key players both before and during the game made it difficult for the Roos but that’s not taking away anything from the performance of the greatly improved Falcons.
