The following excerpts about the AASC program are taken from the Australian Sports Commission website:

“The Australian Government’s Active After-school Communities (AASC) program is a national initiative that provides primary school children with access to free sport and other structured physical activity programs in the after-school time slot of 3.00pm to 5.30pm.

The program aims to engage children in sport and other structured physical activities and through a positive and fun experience, develop a love of sport that inspires them to join a local sporting club.

The coordinators assist schools and after-school care centres to facilitate the program, recruit/train community coaches and work with local sporting clubs and organisations to increase junior membership.

AASC Regional Coordinators coordinate the delivery of the program in primary schools and Childcare Benefit Approved Out of School Hours Care Services (OSHCS) using local sporting clubs, volunteers, private providers, teachers and OSHCS staff, retirees, senior secondary and tertiary students, and parents, brothers or sisters.

The cornerstone of the AASC program is the involvement of the local community in the delivery of the program. This involvement will offer opportunities to support and strengthen community cohesion and development.

The Active After-school Communities program (AASC) program aims to provide primary school children with a positive introduction to sport and other structured physical activities, which motivates them to be active for life.

This is achieved through utilising the Playing for Life philosophy for the delivery of all activities. This philosophy is based on the game sense approach to coaching. The AASC program has adopted this philosophy as it creates a fun and inclusive environment for the introduction of sport and other structured physical activities to primary-school aged children and ensures children of all abilities are engaged in the activities and have a positive and successful experience.

What is Playing for Life?

Playing for Life is an approach to coaching that uses games rather than drills to introduce the skills and tactics of the particular sport or structured physical activity being delivered.  Each session is designed purposefully, so that the games progressively introduce and develop the particular skill that is the focus of the session.”
