Falcons School Holiday Clinic excitement!

Wednesday, July 17, 2019 - 10:30 AM

What a sensational morning for a holiday clinic! Perfect weather greeted nearly 200 children as they ran out onto Joondalup Arena on Tuesday (16/7), for the sold out Falcons July School Holiday Football Clinic.

Participants rotated around 13 stations across The Arena, with each station delivering a smorgasbord of the footballing skills our great game has to offer. Coaches led teams in avoidance, handballing, marking and kicking games, as well as a mini match and a tour of the West Perth club rooms, conducted by none other than the West Perth Captain, Aaron Black.  

Also, for the first time ever, an umpring skills station was introduced to the program. West Perth Junior Umpire Coach Ben Johnson took participants through umpiring basics, hand signals, ball bounces and throw-ins, to give everyone a taste of what it takes to be a junior umpire.

If the wide smiles were anything to go by, the clinic was a huge hit with our upcoming Falcons football stars. 

Special thanks to the West Perth Football Club for providing members of their senior playing group to be our coaches for the morning and a shout out District Development Officer Andrew O'Brien and WAFC staff for making the event possible. 

We look forward to seeing everyone again next time!
