The Newcastle Jets Women may have had a bye round in the Westfield W-League last weekend, but that didn’t stop them from hosting a clinic for their legions of loyal fans.
Newcastle Jets Head Coach Craig Deans and thirteen of his players attended the fourth consecutive Newcastle Jets Clinic on Saturday December 10, that was held at the Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility.
Over 40 Newcastle Jets W-League Fans aged between 8-14 years, attended the clinic and participated in a fun day of football.
The participants were all coached by the players who focused on the four core football skills; Passing, 1v1, running with the ball and first touch. They finished the day by competing in a mini World Cup.
All participants received exclusive Newcastle Jets Westfield W-League merchandise, as well as the opportunity to take photos and get signatures from all the players.
Nyssa Suchanow, Female Participation Officer at Northern NSW Football, organised and hosted the event and said that it was a great day had by all.
“The day was fantastic, there was so much positive feedback from participants, parents and the Newcastle Jets W-League players!” Suchanow said.
“Everyone had so much fun and enjoyed their experience getting to meet and be coached by all the Newcastle Jets W-League girls who attended on the day.”
Newcastle Jets W-League player, Sophie Nenadovic had a ball meeting the fans as well as having the opportunity to coach them.
“It was the best day, I had so much fun coaching the girls, they were all so energetic and excited to be there with us, it was great,” Nenadovic said.
The Newcastle Jets Westfield W-League clinic is an annual clinic which aims to increase fan engagement and offers individual participants the chance to meet the players who they idolise while developing their football skills, and of course having a fantastic day.
