It might not be rugby league season however the Sharks summer footy clinics were still a big hit for those who attended the three different events conducted yesterday.
Junior Jaws, held atNorth Cronulla Beach, saw more than 40 participants treated to plenty of footy fun in the sun and on the sand, with Sharks NRL squad members Jayden Brailey, Jason Bukuya and Scott Sorenson lending a helping hand.
Popular mascot Reefy also attended, while Sharks Women’s World Cup star Corban McGregor was a member of the NRL development staff involved in running the clinic.
Down the road at Southern Cross Group Stadium it was the older boys and girls learning some of the finer points of the game and going through more advanced drills at the Super Jaws Clinic.
Again the main focus was on enjoying the experience, but with a greater emphasis on skill development, with Super Jaws conducted by Sharks Women’s Coach Jason Stanton and former NRL star Daniel Holdsworth.
Sharks NRL Head Coach Shane Flanagan took the Super Jaws group on a stadium tour which incorporated the gym and home dressing room areas, while NRL players Aaron Gray, Joseph Paulo, along with Sharks Jersey Flegg representative Ronaldo Mulitano, assisted at some of the drill stations.
Then last but by no means least, Mega Jaws, an initiative held in conjunction with community program partners Life Start Miranda and Ability Links, took place at the home of the Sharks.
The small group of kids met and interacted with Reefy, toured the stadium and had some fun on the main field at Southern Cross Group Stadium in what was a special clinic run by Jason Stanton.
Stay tuned during the upcoming season for more school holiday clinics conducted by the Sharks.
