An Aussie Rules “come and try day” is being held this afternoon at Picton Oval as part of a community project.

Broken Hill High School Year 11 student, Robert Warhurst, is in the 2013 Max Potential Program which involves having to do something for the community, so Robert decided to host a skills clinic for children under 13.

The aim was to offer kids something worthwhile to do, he said.

“Throughout the program so far I have learnt about the importance of being yourself and not changing to fit in or pretending to be anyone else,” Robert said.

“I choose this project because I believe there is a lack of interest in sport from juniors. I want people to give sport a go.”

The clinic is being held from 4pm to 5pm and the Auskick co-ordinator will be there to supervise. There will be prizes and giveaways as well as a sausage sizzle.

The clinic is open to boys and girls and will run through basic fitness and skills.

“There will be lots of fun games and you don’t have to be good, just come along and try,” Robert said.

“You will get a lot out of it.”
