As part of Stars Foundation’s focus on Healthy Lifestyles and Wellbeing, our Tennant Creek Stars were lucky enough to spend some time with four visiting female athletes from Collingwood Magpies AFLW team this week.
Ruby Schleicher, Chloe Molloy, Eliza Hynes and Erica Fowler spent two fantastic days with our Stars, running training sessions and coordinating fun activities based around the importance of exercise, making good choices, and leadership and confidence building.
The players were also accompanied by well-known Indigenous leader, Jodie Sizer, who was appointed to the Collingwood Football Club Board in 2017.
At the end of the two days, our young women invited the visitors into the Stars Room for a healthy cook-up and a yarn, where Jodie and the players talked to them about future visits to the Tennant Creek program.
After having had such a great time, it was a bit sad for our young women to say goodbye to such inspirational role models, but our Stars are looking forward to hosting another visit in the future.
