Legacy Park was flooded with young Freo fans on Wednesday 31 for the annual Freo Fundamentals Gala Day.

Freo Fundamentals has been running since 2007 with Notre Dame students and AFL Women’s players Aine Tighe and Roxy Roux visiting metropolitan schools conducting clinics focusing on basic motor learning patterns over four sessions.

The sessions ran in term one for students in pre-primary and year one with a maximum of four classes from each school participating.

Organised in conjunction with Notre Dame University, the clinic was a great success with students participating in a series of fun skill clinic stations tailored around the fundamental movement skills they learnt across their four-week program.

More than 220 students attended the gala day, enjoying the opportunity to engage and learn some tips of the trade from AFL players Brandon Walker, Joel Western, Josh Treacy, Liam Henry, Michael Frederick,  Gemma Houghton, Roxy Roux and Aine Tighe.

Moving forward to Term 2, the Fans and Community Engagement team are now excited to be delivering the Welcome to Freo program for Year 5-6 students.

Welcome to Freo is designed to utilise the Fremantle Dockers’ resources and player expertise to assist students in making informed decisions for a responsible, healthy and active lifestyle.

It is a four-session program that helps students develop an understanding of bullying, goal setting, healthy lifestyle, leadership and social responsibility within the WA Curriculum Framework Outcomes.
