Skills for Schools grand finals

More than 150 school aged children descended on Patersons Stadium on Saturday 24 August for the Skills for Schools grand final before Fremantle took on St Kilda.

The students competed in Freo Fast Ball, Freo Kwik Kick and Freo Long Bomb.

Freo Fast Ball is a team handballing event, which involves a team of six students handballing a football through a zig-zag formation as quickly  as possible.

Freo Kwik Kick involves students kicking in pairs over 12 metres to see how many successful kicks they can complete in three minutes.

Freo Long Bomb simply involves students trying to kick a football as far as they can.

Community Goals Manager Wade Spilcker said the Skills for Schools program was a great way for the club to be involved at a community level.

“It’s a great way for us to invest back into the community,” he said.

“We can be involved at the school level and it benefits teachers as the program is linked back to the curriculum.

"This year we've had more than 120 schools participate in each competition, it's been good to see the program grow.”
