SINGLETON AFL club (The ROOSTERS) were focused on the grassroots last Thursday when they were invited to host a kick about at King ST Public School.
On the day, coaches from the junior AFL teams and 2 Singleton Rooster players, Vahid Roser and Scott Moore, currently training at the Sydney Swans Academy visited the school to teach the kids the basic skills of the game, such as kicking, marking (catching the ball), handballing and teamwork.
They arrived at King St hoping to uncover the next Adam Goodes or any student keen to give AFL a go next season, but regardless of ability, all those involve had fun trying to grasp the fundamentals.
Even the rainy day couldn’t stop all the kids enjoying a revised rules muck up game under the King St shelter.
“It’s something that we want to do more of, visiting the schools and giving them another option for sport and to develop their skills” said Junior AFL President Peter Flockhart.
