Dock­ers turn teach­ers

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - LOOKLOCAL -

FRE­MAN­TLE Dock­ers play­ers de­scended on Curtin Univer­sity last week to host a clinic for in­ter­na­tional stu­dents.

‘Wel­come to AFL’ aimed to in­tro­duce the sport to stu­dents who had never played and pro­vide the op­por­tu­nity for them to par­tic­i­pate in a quintessen­tially Aus­tralian ex­pe­ri­ence.

It was held at Curtin’s Ed­in­burgh oval. Dock­ers play­ers, in­clud­ing Tendai Mzungu and Brady Grey taught rules and skills from the game to stu­dents with back­grounds from China, Brazil, In­done­sia, Ger­many, Amer­ica and Malaysia.

More than 150 stu­dents, both male and fe­male, reg­is­tered for the clinic.
