Kalgoorlie Miner - - SPORT -

Nic Nai­tanui and Adam Simp­son will be star at­trac­tions when the West Coast Ea­gles come to town for the first time since 2004 on Fe­bru­ary 8 and 9.

They will be mak­ing the rounds, along with some of the best of last year’s grand fi­nal­ists as part of the Ea­gles’ AFL Com­mu­nity Camp.

A free pub­lic au­to­graph ses­sion at Dig­ger Daws Oval at 4.30pm fol­lowed by a coach­ing fo­rum with the Su­bi­aco tal­ent de­vel­op­ment squad will be the main draws on the first day.

The play­ers and coaches have a packed sched­ule in Kal­go­or­lieBoul­der, in­clud­ing trips to ev­ery lo­cal pri­mary school, a meet­ing with play­ers from 2015 Gold­fields Foot­ball League pre­miers Mines Rovers Foot­ball Club and a mon­ster coach­ing clinic with about 160 kids from Kam­balda and Cool­gar­die at Dig­ger Daws Oval.

Gen­eral ad­mis­sion tick­ets are also on sale for the sports­man’s night on the 8th and cor­po­rate break­fast on the 9th, both at the Over­land Mo­tel, for $50 a per­son.

WA Foot­ball Com­mis­sion re­gional de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer Gemma Har­ri­son will be in St Bar­bara’s Square to­day from 9.30am to 11.30am to sell tick­ets to the sports­man’s night and cor­po­rate break­fast.

The Fre­man­tle Dock­ers came to Kal­go­or­lie-Boul­der in 2011, the last time an AFL com­mu­nity camp was held in the re­gion.
