Today we were treated to a visit from a Geelong Cats football player for an AFL clinic.
Geelong is a team in the Australian Football League (AFL) and they are very popular in this part of Victoria. In Australia we use the word “barrack” to say who our favourite sporting teams are.
Geelong Cats player, Billie Smedts, came to help run a footy clinic for all of the grade four students. The students enjoyed practising their sporting skills in five rotations:
- Kicking goals from different angles and distances
- Marker’s Up
- Getting the ball past Billie into the soccer nets
- Dodge Ball
- Tennis Ball Grab
The students also spent some time asking Billie some interesting questions about life as a Geelong Cats footballer.

Thank you to Billie for visiting us at school!
