Campaspe News - - SPORT -

ROCHESTER ju­nior foot­ballers had an ex­cit­ing train­ing ses­sion on Wed­nes­day led by a for­mer AFL star.

As part of the bril­liant spon­sor­ship that Echuca Toy­ota pro­vides, the deal­er­ship put on a Toy­ota Good for Footy ses­sion for our kids.

Un­der 10s, 12s and 14s had the op­por­tu­nity to be in­volved in this coach­ing ses­sions.

For­mer Colling­wood for­ward Travis Cloke was on hand to take the chil­dren through some drills and of­fer some ex­pert coach­ing ses­sion.

The chil­dren loved be­ing able to take ‘hang­ers’ on the jump­ing cas­tle, kick goals through the in­flat­a­bles and prac­tice their hand­balling and kick­ing skills by aiming through holes in another in­flat­able.

The hour long ses­sion was loved by the more than 75 chil­dren who at­tended.

At the com­ple­tion of the train­ing ses­sion, kids were given a free sausage siz­zle and a soft drink.

They then had a ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion with Travis where they were able to win signed foot­ball jumpers, au­to­graphed balls and other foot­balls.

The gen­eros­ity of Echuca Toy­ota was un­be­liev­able with more than 20 foot­balls given out to the chil­dren.

This train­ing ses­sion is one the chil­dren are sure to re­mem­ber for a long time.

Once again, a spe­cial thank you to Echuca Toy­ota for their amaz­ing sup­port.
