The Sharks Mega Jaws clinic brought together a collection of additional needs kids yesterday afternoon in delivering a few hours of footy fun that most who were in attendance will long remember.
Partnering with Lifestart Miranda, an organisation that supports children and young people living with disability or delay, the Sharks Mega Jaws clinic gave the group a chance to experience the skills, thrills and the excitement of rugby league, many for the first time in their lives.
Headed up by Jason Stanton, the Sharks Women’s Series Head Coach, Mega Jaws included a visit from Sharks NRL Coach Shane Flanagan, with Club Captain Paul Gallen dropping by to lend a hand.
The youngsters scored some tries, made a few tackles and kicked a ball around Southern Cross Group Stadium, with plenty of fun had by all.
This is the second of many Mega Jaws clinics planned for the future, with the first one launched by Flanagan and former player and now media personality Beau Ryan back in July.
The Sharks aim is to now run one Mega Jaws Clinic during the four School Holiday periods each year. Mega Jaws will be funded by the Sharks Have Heart Foundation, with the foundation and generous donor contributions making programs such as this possible.
