City campus information
Australian Rules Football College leaders will return to the Wimmera on June 28 to host a community information session about their plans to create a Horsham campus.
Directors Tiffany Toombs and Luke O’shannessy hosted a meet and greet for stakeholders last week.
They will return for a community information session at Wesley Performing Arts Centre from 6pm to 7pm.
Ms Toombs said the initial stakeholder session went well.
“We had a couple of councillors and football coaches come along, as well as a few people interested in finding out more information,” she said.
“This next session is for the community and we encourage anyone who might be interested to come along.”
Miss Toombs launched Australian Rules Football College in North Melbourne in 2015 along with Hawthorn premiership players Brad Sewell and Michael Osborne and is looking to create a Horsham campus.
The college will run a pilot program in Horsham from July through to the end of the year, with a 2018 program running from March to November.
Miss Toombs said male and female participants aged 18 to 26 would attend the college three days a week, incorporating elements of football skill development, individualised strength and conditioning and education.
The college will run a school holiday program on July 12 as a ‘come and try’ session for people interested in participating in the pilot program.
