The Peer Program matches a Junior Coach, from the ages of 11-12 years and up, with a team for a season. Under the guidance of a Senior Club Coach the Junior Coaches learn skills for coaching and life.

"I really enjoyed my second year in the Mentor Program, as a junior coach with the Auskick kids. I learnt how it’s important to connect with kids on a personal level. For example, knowing what footy teams they go for and some of their favourite players. This helped to get them to listen and stay enthusiastic."
"The mentor program keeps kids engaged with their communities and provides a great opportunity for kids to learn some essential life skills whilst participating in an activity they love. He is excited to participate again next season!”
