Parents have praised the program as a great new initiative, with kids given a rare opportunity to get together and learn relevant skills from the best coaches in the state.
"Clinic’s such as these are fantastic for emerging generations, so your organisation is also to be commended for committing to development at the grass roots level. Additionally, making available extremely good resources such as Mark adds considerably to the value of these clinics" said one pleased parent.
