We would like to extend an invitation to Northcote Junior Football Club players to take part in a once in a lifetime international Aussie Rules Development Tour to South Africa, led by Master Coach Kevin Sheedy!
The tour is open to individual players aged 13 to 16 years of age. The tour will feature games against South African Provincial sides and the chance to conduct Aussie Rules youth clinics to local children. Not only will players have the unique opportunity to play overseas and spread the game internationally, they will also have the chance to be coached and mentored by Kevin Sheedy. As well as overseeing training session and games, Kevin will mentor players passing on all of his experience gained over 929 AFL/VFL games. Parent and family are also more than welcome to join this incredible experience.
In addition to the Aussie Rules experiences. players will also have the chance to experience the marvels of Africa including Game Parks and Game Drives, visiting an Elephant Sanctuary and a Lion Park. As well as the incredible wildlife participants will have a chance to soak up some of South Africa’s history and culture at Soweto and Robben Island.
We hoped you may be able to extend the attached invitation to your players either via email, your website or social media. We are also more than happy to provide further promotion materials if needed.
The tour opportunity has only just been announced and we have already received a significant amount of interest and tour positions are expected to fill extremely quickly, we would therefore encourage players to register their interest as quickly as possible.
