Starkick Dockers’ ‘friend’
THE Coolbinia Bombers Junior Football Club’s all abilities Starkick program has been selected as a friend of the Fremantle Dockers Foundation for 2016.
The Foundation hosted the Coolbinia Starkick players and their families at their Family Fun Day at Market Square, next to Subiaco Oval, on March 12 before the NAB Challenge match against Geelong.
Starkick is designed for special needs children who may not be able to take part in a mainstream football team.
“Starkick is a place to make new friends and develop new skills at a pace that suits each child,” Starkick co-ordinator Rob Geersen said.
Last year, Coolbinia Bombers JFC had 47 registered Starkick players.
Coolbinia JFC president Tom Parker said the club had “wholeheartedly” embraced the Starkick concept. “We are proud to provide for all children that want to have a go,” he said.
“Being able to make friends and learn new skills whilst playing sport each weekend is something many of us take for granted. Now with Starkick that opportunity exists for all kids and their families.
“With the amazing support of the Fremantle Dockers Foundation we now hope to promote the Starkick program to other junior football clubs around WA, and ultimately Australia.”
