A truly humbling experience for the SAASTA AFL Academy boys yesterday as we visited the kids from Indulkana Anangu School. The boys had the opportunity to run a football clinic for students there, and then spent time hanging out with the kids handing out football boots and SAASTA/Power merchandise. Some of these young boys and girls have never worn/owned a pair of boots before, and the looks on their faces was something our boys will not quickly forget! We are grateful for the welcome feeling we received from staff, students and families! This morning we were up early to participate in a super clinic with a large group of the Clontarf Academy students, and then off to the pool for a quick recovery session. Still a big day ahead and and even bigger one tomorrow - game day at last!
Looking forward to the World Cup!
We stopped in Port Augusta at the new 'Central's' community sports facility, where they ran a clinic for local students. Whilst there we were treated to a story and song by student Kaleb Tree's grandmother, and most of the boys shared some kangaroo tail and damper with a group of elders from the local community who came out to watch the clinic. After a quick bite we are off again to Coober Pedy School where we will spend the night.
