On Thursday 20 October After School Care was lucky enough to have our own training session with an AFL player, Marc Pittonet from Hawthorn (number 43). Marc showed us all how to hold the football when bouncing the ball and also to handball. We had a competition to see who could handball the football into the bin on the basketball court. On the oval we tried to kick the ball the longest we could and got some pointers on how we could improve our kicking skills.
Marc answered all our questions about football and the Hawthorn Football Club. We were amazed at his height of 201cm – this is why he is a ruckman! He has only played a few games for Hawthorn but we are all sure that next year we will see more of him on the field. Thank you Marc for coming to After School Care – we had an absolute blast learning new skills and asking questions. We wish you luck for next season!!
