Freo return from Goldfields
The Fremantle Dockers have returned from a great three-day Telstra AFL Community Camp experience in the Goldfields.
The club visited a number of primary and secondary schools while in the region, where the players addressed the students on the rigours of playing AFL, living a healthy lifestyle and pursuing their dreams.
Some of the Freo Dockers’ travelling party couldn’t help but show off their dancing talents to the starry-eyed youngsters.
We won’t give away names but one of them was 211cm tall.
The players also conducted a NAB Auskick Superclinic and attended a sportsman’s night and a leadership breakfast.
They were even given the opportunity to join in some local activities, with the players visiting an underground mine site and others prospecting for gold out in the fields.
Tendai Mzungu’s hopes were raised when his detector led him believe he had struck gold – unfortunately, it turned out to be a piece of tin.
Better luck next time Tendai.
The Fremantle Dockers Football Club wishes to thank everyone in the Goldfields region who has helped make this an unforgettable experience.
It was an extremely worthwhile trip and the players really enjoyed getting out and about to meet the locals.
Hopefully, we will see some of you at Patersons Stadium during the season cheering on the boys.
