Last week we kicked of our AFL clinics program for preschool children in Gorton, Johnson and Robinson Houses. The start of the program has been a bit rocky due to the bad weather, but this week some of the children from Gorton House took advantage of a (mostly) sunny break to brush up on their ball skills.
Coach Spencer demonstrates how to kick the ball....And action!
Jacinta (pictured with educator Melanie) has brittle bone disease, making her extremeley prone to fractures. However, Spencer supplied a smaller foam football so that Jacitna could partiapte safely in the program with the other children - which she did with much enthusiasm!
The clinics are 10am to 11am on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays this term and the program will be repeated in terms three and four. We will endeavour to change the days for the clinics throughout the year to try to ensure that all children aged 3-5 have an opportunity to participate for at least one term this year.
