Lance Read Auskicker of the Year

The Lance Read Auskicker of the Year Award has been presented at YDJFC since 2010, when our club tragically lost one of our most valued volunteers.


Described as a gentle giant with a heart of gold by those that knew him, Lance Read, ran our Auskick program. Not only was he heavily involved in our Junior Football Club, but also the local Cricket Club. To honour his memory and the contributions he made to YDJFC, the Lance Read Auskicker of the Year Award was inaugurated.

This award is generally presented to an Auskick participant in their last year of the program. Auskick coaches, in collaboration with the Auskick Coordinator, select a player based on criteria such as sportsmanship, participation, effort, attitude and progress.
