The SEDA Western Australia Sports Development Program has kicked off term 2 with a few impressive student awards. Three students were selected by their teachers for their display of leadership, initiative, professionalism and all round general performance in all aspects of the SEDA program. The three nominated students (pictured below) were presented with a certificate from SEDA WA State Manager, Mick Doherty, along with an award from the individual sporting bodies (Fremantle Dockers, Perth Glory and Cricket Australia).
“The boys from John Fawkner were chanting the whole game putting I and the whole team under more pressure, but being the player I am it made me more motivated and more confident and I reacted in a positive way” – Monique Campbell.
Friday 10th May at Vic Park Leisure-Life recreational centre the Perth Glory SEDA SDP pupils delivered a number of coaching stations for secondary pupils with special needs. The event run by The Special Olympics WA was a fantastic opportunity for our class to explore their coaching with a focus of student involvement, high participation and most of all fun.
Hawthorn Football Club and SEDA have signed an agreement to work closer together over the next three years. The partnership strengthens the relationship between the organisations and acknowledges the work SEDA has done with the club over the last couple of years. It will provide some excellent opportunities for SEDA students to see the operations of an elite club in action.
A huge congratulations to SEDA Fremantle Dockers student, Hayley THOMPSON who has been selected as a CAT (Communicare Active Together) Youth Ambassador for 2013. Hayley is leaving a large footprint on the Western Australian Sports and Recreation community as a SEDA Fremantle Dockers class leader and now as a CAT Youth Ambassador.
First week back into term 2 and the SEDA Fremantle Dockers Sports Development Program has really hit the ground running. Students spent their first clinic out in a local primary school, St Patricks Primary. SEDA students commenced the first of 3 sessions with St Patricks students from years 1, 3, 4 and 6. The first session in the program is built around the fundamentals of AFL and basic skill acquisition.
The SEDA Cricket Australia SDP left the cold, wet weather outside and entered the Indoor Arena at Ballajura Indoor Sports Complex on Thursday 9 May to increase their skills and knowledge of Indoor Cricket. The students were treated to a Clinic by former Australian Pace Bowler Bruce Reid, they played full and modified versions of the game and developed specific coaching drills targeted towards Primary and Secondary school students.
