Keeping up with the MiniRoos

#10: Alex & Ross deliver some football fun at the Activate Inclusion Sports Day!

September 13th, 2019

The sun was well and truly out as I set off with Senior Community Football Officer Ross Hicks to attend the Activate Inclusion Sports Day held by Sport NSW at Hunter Sports High School on Friday September 6.

The Activate Inclusion program is a ground-breaking initiative focused on providing sporting opportunities for students aged 5 to 18 years with a physical, intellectual or sensory disability. This was the second time this year that Northern NSW Football attended an Activate Inclusion Day, after both Annelise and I attended the corresponding event at the University of Newcastle on March 27.

Over 200 excited young sportspeople attended this time around, keeping Ross, myself and all the other sports coaches super busy!

Football games for the day included:

> The Traffic Game

> Stuck in the Mud

> Dribbling & scoring loads of goals past Alex & Ross

> Modified small sided football


Thank you to Murray Elbourn and Sophie Milton from Sport NSW for inviting us along again, and to all those fantastic football stars who came along and had fun with their friends!


Alex Lowe – ALDI MiniRoos Development Officer
