Saigon Vietkick wrapped up for 2022 on Grand Final Day and VIetkickers celebrated the end of the season at our Grand Final Party. Coach Rusty gives a brief wrap up of our return Vietkick season:

After 7 sunny weeks (and one rainy one), we have concluded our wonderful Vietkick season for 2022. Eager were the children that attended our Saturday morning practices, turning sunshine into glorious cheers and supportive sportsmanship. Skills were learnt, jokes were heard, and tears of joy and despair shared. 

Well done to all Vietkickers for being enthusiastic and coachable. It has been a real pleasure seeing so much development in such a short period of time. A huge thank you to all the parents and coaches that showed up week after week, to support the development of the greatest game. Given the complexity of some of the drills and skills, the kids really could not have done it without your support. 

Next season of Vietkick is planned to start in February (2023) and run through to September 2023 (with a summer break). It will require a registration fee which will be advised in the new year. Each Vietkicker will receive an AFL Auskick kit and other benefits. Please follow the Vietnam Swans on Facebook and for more info and to keep up with all the other footy news in Vietnam!

Editor’s note – the BIGGEST thanks needs to go to Coach Rusty and Steve who were the key volunteers in getting this year’s program up and running! 

Thank also for the support of the AFL and the Australian Embassy in Vietnam for supporting us in getting Vietkick back up and running in Saigon this season. We hope that this leads to 1,000s of new players taking to the sport in the years to come!

Further thanks must go to the Vietnam Swans 2022 sponsors who enable our club to do what we do, as always support them in any way you can!
