Accelerated Football Program Kicks Off
Williamstown Football Club kicked off the first session of the Club’s accelerated football program for Bayside College students today.
The partnership which was launched last week by State MP and the Seagulls #1 ticket holder Wade Noonan and Hobsons Bay Mayor Angela Altair, has female students from Years 7-9 enrolled in the year long program as part of their curriculum.
More than 20 students were put through their paces by current VFL players Joel Tippett, Darby Henderson and ex-Seagull Luke Goetz..
The girls undertook an hour of drills focused on the fundamentals of the game, as well as some fun engagement activities.
We look forward to this program progressing as the year goes on and see the girls continue to enjoy their football.
CEO Jason Reddick says it was really exciting to see all the Bayside students in action.
"It was fantastic today to see the enthusiasm of so many girls eager to develop their skills, and many of them have already impressed us on the track."
"We are very proud that our Club is at the forefront delivering football opportunities for all females, and being an integral part of the talent pathway to the top level"
Thanks to our work with Principal Andrew Harnett and Campus Principal Nolene Symons, we have established a very strong partnership with Bayside and we look forward to continuing to grow our connection with their school.”
