Fans enjoyed a variety of activities guided by AFLW players

Over 150 children from around South Australia took part in a school holiday clinic run by the AFLW players in January at the Club's West Lakes base.

There were smiles everywhere and skills were on display as the mini-Crows participated in a range of activities and games at both outdoor and indoor stations under the directions of their favourite players.

An autograph session followed the clinic, with each participant awarded a football and AFLW team poster.

The Club received some amazing feedback from parents following the clinic, including the following:

“The girls had a fantastic time, and were so appreciative of everyone’s time – being able to get up close and personal with their idols, getting autographs and photos with the girls, and above all, the opportunity to participate in these clinics – the fact is not lost on any of them, that these pathways are only just now being made available to young girls, to be able to follow their dreams and play a sport they love, at whatever level they choose."

"My two girls participated in the clinic and they had the best time. I thought it was so well organised and all of the players were so helpful and friendly.  They are now both keen to take up footy this coming season, which is great.”
