Tennant Creek Stars took part in the first of two AFL Gala days in Tennant Creek this week, with some of Collingwood’s AFL players coaching and encouraging the Under 15 Stars team.
The girls in turn showcased their deadly footy skills – and had a great time doing it!
The event was a fantastic opportunity for the Stars to band together in a fun environment and benchmark their skills against some professional players.
It wasn’t all about football though! Most of the professional players had ample opportunity to engage with the girls, sharing stories of their own achievements at school and their journeys to their current careers.
A healthy day full of physical exercise, but also a wonderful learning experience and a chance for our Stars to be inspired by the Collingwood players’ stories of success!
