Sport - Year 7 & 8 AFL Football

A select number of year 7 and 8 girls have been involved in an introduction to women’s AFL through the Sport program this term. They will spend a total of 5 weeks working on their kicking and ball handling skills with the opportunity to apply these to modified versions of the AFL game. Through this experience, students will work alongside other students from Christian College Highton and The Geelong Lutheran College to develop their skills through professional coaching sessions and mixed teams’ game play. The girls approached the first two sessions enthusiastically and have really enjoyed learning more about the game and seeing their skills progress. We may even have some girls switching codes from netball to AFL next year!
