In 2015 the local Auskick centre could not get the volunteers to run the programs – they asked V Swans to help them deliver this vital programs to the children aged 3 to 8 in town. V Swans devised a program (V Swans Kick IT) that saw not only football delivered and parents trained to coach but also worked to ensure the program supported the local Football League with all proceeds of the program going back to the competition to continue to develop their upper pathways.

In 2015 the program saw 89 children involved in the program with 10 volunteer parent coaches directly involved and another 50 parent’s attending weekly to be involved in the program with their children
