City cam­pus in­for­ma­tion

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News - – Sarah Scully

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.
