The Broken Hill Auskick is having a "Come and Try Day" tomorrow for all kids involved in the NAB Auskick program from U7s to U11s.

It is also for any boys and girls who are not currently involved but would like to come along and see what it's all about.

Due to the increase in numbers AFL NSW has employed Brent Fennessy to assist with the Auskick Operations.

Marc Geppert, Southern NSW Participation Manager, said Brent will work alongside AFL Development Officer Terry Mutch.

"It's exciting to now have AFL resources employed in Broken Hill," Mr Geppert said.

"Brent's experience and skillset will benefit junior footy in Broken Hill. It is also a huge bonus that Brent is a current primary school teacher, local player and the coach of the Barrier PSSA Football Team."

Friday will kick off with the Under 7s at 4pm with a skills session followed by a game.

The Under 9s will begin at 4.40pm, followed by the Under 11s at 5.10pm, concluding at 6pm.

Terry Mutch, AFL Development Officer, invited all coaches that are involved with Auskick to come along.

Players will be able to register on the day; the cost for Auskick registration is $75 which includes an Auskick Pack.
