The Mitcham Junior Football Club took their NAB Auskick Clinics to one more local school on Wednesday April 18. This time it was Whitehorse Primay School in Nunawading. Once again Mitcham Auskick Co-ordinator Craig Giles took a team of volunteers along with him to show the Preps to Grade 2 students what they could experience if they participated in the weekly Auskick program the club is running in Season 2013.
With the help of Under 10 Coach Leigh Walters, under 10 Team Manager Kylie McCall and three parent helpers. Brad Aujard, Darren Clarke and Mark Butler, Craig ran two clinics to two large groups of children. The kids really enjoyed the drills showing them how to mark, handball and kick for goals. There was also great excitement as Craig asked the children some general AFL football questions with the prize of a football on offer.
Craig said "It is so imporant that junior football clubs get out and involved with their local shcools and show the children that Auskick is something that they can all get involved with, no matter whether they are big or small or boy or girl. It's seomthing they can all do and keeps them active for the full 60 minutes."
The Mitcham JFC NAB Auskick program returns bigger and better in 2013. Starting this Friday April 19, we will have clinics under lights at Walker Park, Nunawading (the official MCG of the East!) every Friday night from 6pm till 7pm. A great family friendly environment and with the very experienced Craig Giles as Auskick co-ordinator, what better place could you wish to have your children learn all there is to know about playing this great game.
