Western Bulldogs heading to Warrnambool

News Article Date: 
Monday, 4 March 2019

The Western Bulldogs will visit Warrnambool on March 11 and 12 as part of the 2019 AFL Community Camp program.

The program will see players and coaches taking part in various activities, including local school and hospital visits, a NAB AFL Auskick Super Clinic, a coaching clinic and a community dinner with the opportunity to meet players and coaches.

The bulk of the men’s squad is expected to be present following the club’s JLT Community Series match against St Kilda in Ballarat on March 10.

Warrnambool Mayor Tony Herbert said that the presence of professional players in the city was a major boost for thousands of local footy fans.

“Whether it’s bringing a smile to the face of someone in hospital or upskilling local coaches, I’d like to commend the Bulldogs on their commitment to make a difference in Warrnambool,” he said.

“Our region is a heartland for Aussie Rules football, and there’s a real buzz around the place when AFL teams are in town.

“Children, especially younger kids, can be very impressionable. Meeting a footy player in real life, having a kick with them, getting a high-five, it can brighten up their whole week. 

“It will hopefully encourage them to keep being physically active as well, which as we all know is vital to lead a happy, healthy life. 

“Elite sportsmen and women also act as mentors and leaders and encourage our young people to be the best they can in their chosen field. Positive role models are extremely important in our communities.”
