Skills of Australian Football

Skills of Australian Football is the most comprehensive guide to learning all parts of the game—from the fundamentals of kicking and handball to what happens in the coaching box. It has all the hallmarks of a classic.”—Gillon McLachlan, CEO AFL.

They make it look easy, those footy idols of ours. We may be forgiven for thinking that they are born with the skills that set them apart from the thousands of all ages who lace up a pair of footy boots each week—they’re not.

For every great mark, running bounce, lightning handball, bone-crunching tackle, and spectacular goal, there is sweat, long hours in the gym, repetitive skills training, and kilometre after kilometre of aerobic training; all done to prepare the stars of the game to play to the best of their ability. Their disparate journeys to the AFL began by learning the basic skills of our great game, under the direction of parents, friends, and junior coaches.

Skills of Australian Football is the ultimate guide to playing the AFL way. It is designed to teach players of all ages and all levels the skills crucial to football success: from kicking, marking, and handballing correctly, through to the importance of smart running, of teamwork, and of understanding the different game plans that have been devised by the best coaches in AFL history.

Skills of Australian Football is your one-stop-shop for everything you need to know about Australian football. With tips from the game’s champions, all supported by instructional photographs, Skills of Australian Football will provide you with the grounding required to become a successful footballer, no matter the level of competition you reach.
