Primary AFL Clinic

On Tuesday July 22nd Years 4–6 attended a football clinic on Malvern Oval run by Collingwood Football Club.

Luke Ball, Lachlan Keeffe, Josh Thomas and Tom Langdon put the boys through a number of skill activities and followed up with a question time. During this session questions such as “Do you get paid ?”, “Who was your toughest opponent?”and “What was your background?” were asked. Luke Ball told the group that their training sessions are now GPS mapped and players have to complete a set distance before they finish (this week it was ten kilometres)!

After the clinic the boys asked for autographs and chatted to the players about their football and general sporting activities. It was a great experience and we thank Collingwood and the AFL for their great support.
