On Friday 27 July Leeming Senior High School Boys and Girls AFL teams had a coaching session with the Dockers players Shane Kersten and Nathan Wilson. Our students had the chance to learn some techniques and put them to practice with Shane and Nathan.
After we learned some tricks and tips, we had a fascinating Q&A session. We learned about their recovery routines after a game, their diet and their thoughts on the new Perth Stadium. It was very insightful for our students to learn, for example, that the players have a 4 hour block a week allocated to studying and that sugars and soft drinks are out of the menu. Shane and Nathan were also very eager to share with us some of the most annoying habits of their fellow Dockers players which we can’t share with you.
