Anniversary Park turns purple

Nat Fyfe speaks to media at Pinjarra Primary School during the AFL Community Camp.

Anniversary Park in Rockingham was awash with purple on Thursday evening as hundreds of school aged children descended on the home of the Rockingham Rams Football Club for a free ‘Super Clinic’.

While Nat Fyfe’s autograph was the most sought after item, hundreds of budding footballers took part in up to seven separate activites ran by the likes of Fyfe, Nathan Wilson, Cam McCarthy, Hayden Ballantyne, Ed Langdon and Cam Sutcliffe as well as new draftees Andrew Brayshaw, Adam Cerra and Mitch Crowden.


Fremantle assistant coach Anthony Rock and development coaches Roger Hayden and Adam Read also took part in a separate clinic for local coaches, while the Fremantle Dockers Foundation donated a signed guernsey and a box to a Fremantle game in 2018 at Optus Stadium to the Rockingham Rams for fundraising.

The clinic was just one of Fremantle’s many stops in the AFL Community Camp, which visited more than 20 schools in the Peel and Wheatbelt regions, including schools in Mandurah, Rockingham, Pinjarra, Narrogin, Waroona, Dwellingup and Pingelly.


Rockingham Rams president Michael Holland said Fremantle’s visit was a significant one for the club.

“I just wanted to pass on our thanks,” Holland said.

“The staff and players at Fremantle FC are a real credit to the organisation and this concept is such a positive one is for grass roots community football. 

“The donations from the Freo Dockers of the signed jumper and stadium box will be raffled to raise funds for the Club, which we can use to purchase new equipment, particularly for the juniors which is essential for our club. This really does mean a great deal to us.”


During last year’s AFL Community camps, 120,363 school students had visits from AFL players with 742 schools being visited, with players and coaches meeting fans and developing stronger links between Australian Football and the community.
