Do I need to Volunteer?
The Redcliffe Tigers AFC is a non-profit organisation that relies on volunteers to run the operations of the club.
There are game day roles that need to be filled for games to go ahead such as, goal umpiring, ground marshalling, water carrier etc. We ask that all parents help to get the children on the field playing each week.
In addition to this, there are many other roles available. We would love to see as many people as involved as possible. To find out more about the roles within the club please contact the Secretary.
Do we have an AusKick program?
Yes. We have a limited program that runs for 8 weeks at the start of the season. AusKick is a fun way to introduce kids to AFL. It is available for all children aged between 5 and 12 years of age.
Each week across the 8 weeks kids get to run, jump, kick and have fun while learning new skills.
SuperStars is the next step after AusKick. The program is run over 8 weeks, and children get to experience learning new skills along with a mini game.
