Active After-School Communities Program
The Active After-school Communities (AASC) Program is a free Australian Government initiative that provides primary school children with access to sport after school (3.00pm – 5.30pm). The program is run nationally through an Australia-wide network of regional coordinators who train community coaches and forge links between children and clubs.
The benefits to clubs include:
• Opportunity for clubs to link to primary schools
• Opportunity for clubs to apply for equipment grants
• Opportunity for coaches to gain payment
The MYGolf Active After-school Communities (AASC) Program has been specifically designed for the AASC program. It also includes components of the MYGolf National Skills Challenge but in a simple and modified form that integrates with the requirements of the ASSC program.
The program is designed for School Teachers, Development Officers, Community Coaches, Students and PGA Members to deliver golf at school (or a golf course) as part of the AASC Program.
