Footy clinic a hit
KICKS, marks and tackling were all on the school holiday agenda for a large number of kids earlier this week.
Merrivale Recreation Reserve was the place to be on Wednesday morning when well over 120 excited participants took part in a Footy 4 Fun event.
The free session proved a great way for locals to improve their skills, enjoy some time outdoors with friends and take part in a variety of mini-games.
“Footy 4 Fun events are a great way for our youngest footballers in the region to come and try the sport in a fun, inclusive and safe environment,” AFL participation coordinator for the western district Leah Woolfe said.
“Last school holidays we attracted around 80 kids from across the region, but this number has almost doubled across three locations – Portland, Hamilton and Warrnambool – these school holidays.”
