Fun, fitness the goal of free clinics

11 March 2008

STUDENTS of Bentley’s Al-Hidayah School got a kick out of free soccer clinics last week, beaming with enthusiasm while learning new skills.

Principal Abdullah Khan said the Edusport clinic was “wonderful” and fitted well with the school’s focus on healthy diet and physical activity.

“We are encouraging children to be active instead of sitting in front of the computer at school and at home,” Mr Khan said.

The national clinic for Years 4 to 7 students included lessons from former A-League player Darren Young.

“I wanted to give kids in WA similar opportunities to the ones I had — now they can participate in soccer clinics and learn skills that will stay with them throughout life,” Young said.

“Playing since I was seven, I have gained enormous benefit from being sporty early on.”

He said the clinics had proved popular since the launch of the ALeague, Australia’s success in the World Cup and its presence in tournaments like the 2007 Asian Cup.
