The day saw over 1000 kids from 75 different teams playing a number of Auskick fixtures against each other, with Subiaco league players in attendance providing encouragement, support and coaching advice.
The day was an opportunity for the kids to showcase the skills that they have been developing all year and they didn’t disappoint, with some fantastic games of Auskick being played.
All teams played a minimum of three games, with the kids enjoying the chance to play against teams from different clubs.
Teams that weren’t playing games had the opportunity to be involved in skill clinics led by the Subiaco league players, including taking turns on the popular ‘Specky’ – an inflatable skills station.
The volunteers from the Sorrento Duncraig Junior Football Club, led by President Mark Lawler and Auskick Coordinator Colin Rose, did a fantastic job in organising the day and ensuring everything ran smoothly.
From ground marking late Friday night, to ground set up and cooking breakfast early Saturday morning, there is no doubt the day couldn’t have run as well as it did without the tireless efforts from the Sorrento Duncraig committee.
Subiaco District Manager Ben Haywood was impressed with how smoothly the day ran, commenting that “the success of the day is a credit to the leadership and effort put in by Colin, Mark and the Sorrento Duncraig committee.”
Overall the day was a success, with plenty of smiling kids filling up Seacrest Reserve, loving every minute of their Auskick games.
