Auskickers thrive in city spotlight

Gavin De GruchyNarrogin Observer

Narrogin Hawks Auskick Centre travelled to Domain Stadium last weekend to participate in the NAB AFL Auskick Half Time Grid Games during the West Coast Eagles v Port Adelaide Power match last Sunday.

The centre was invited by the West Australian Football Commission to send 56 Auskick players to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The players’ parents and guardians were also at the stadium, with 16 able to go out onto the ground as coaches, goal umpires and sign carriers during the half-time break.

Planning of the day started in early May and it was rewarding to see the day come together as anticipated.

Auskick Centre co-ordinators thank the players, parents, families and friends who made sure the contingent got to the stadium on time.

Co-ordinating a day of this nature required everyone to listen carefully to instructions and the group carried out those instructions in exemplary fashion.

They pulled together to ensure the players and family members made the most of this amazing opportunity.

They conducted themselves in a professional, responsible manner on and off the ground and everyone should be very proud of themselves in the way they represented the centre.

Plenty of photos and footage has been taken, so head to the Facebook page to check out the action.

A lucky few players also made it onto live television and can now consider themselves having made the “big time”.

Narrogin Auskick resumes again on Saturday, July 22 from 9.30am at Clayton Road Oval, after the school holidays.
