Hop along for a bit of fun with the junior Kangaroos

IT'S the junior sport version of try before you buy.

North Coffs is hosting a free come-and-try session on Friday at the Bray St Oval with a view to increasing its player numbers in 2014.

The Kangaroos are on the lookout for new players in all junior age groups including Auskick (ages 5 to 9), juniors (ages 10 and 11) and youth (under-13s and 15s).

Club president Pat O'Connell said all existing and prospective players were more than welcome to come down with their families between 4pm and 5pm as Friday's come-and-try session will also represent the official start of training.

"Even if you haven't played AFL before, it doesn't matter," O'Connell said.

"It will be a great opportunity to have some fun, learn new skills and meet the coaches for the upcoming season."

A number of senior Kangaroo players will also be in attendance to assist with the clinic and ensure everyone gets involved. After the session there will be a free barbecue and soft drinks available for all participants.

O'Connell said regular training would then take place at Bray St Oval each Friday throughout the season.

He added the club prided itself on being a family oriented club with a focus on child participation, giving players the opportunity to learn new skills but most of all having fun in a safe and friendly environment. O'Connell can be contacted for more information on 0435 041 566.
