The Cronulla Sharks wrapped up the Club’s School Holiday Junior and Super Jaws Coaching Clinics at Remondis Stadium this afternoon.
Hosted over two days, more than 150 local Junior Rugby League players, aged between five and 10, were treated to a wealth of Rugby League knowledge and experience.
300 NRL game legend John Morris ran the two-day Super Jaws Clinic while the Sharks NRL squad took part in coaching drills at the Junior Jaws clinic today after signing autographs for all participants.
Morris said the clinics were fantastic for the development of local juniors and great for the game in the Shire.
“The development of the game is paramount as is the continued development of outstanding young players in the Shire,” Morris said.
In conjunction with the NRL Development program, the clinics have been created to facilitate the development of juniors across Australia.
Sharks Community Group Manager Jess Goddard said the focus of the clinics was threefold and the goals had been achieved.
“Our clinics need to be highly developmental, no matter the age of the child,” said Goddard.
“While children who take part in the clinics will have a phenomenal amount of fun and get to see the players, they will also walk away far better footballers.
“Cronulla Sharks is more than just a football club and initiatives like these are important to the community and ongoing development of Rugby League.”
To continue the week of junior community engagement, the Sharks will host the Mini Mermaids Cheer Clinic this Thursday.
