KEEPING the kids amused during the coming school holidays will be easy following the confirmation that the Kids To Kangaroos rugby league clinic will be held at Coramba Sports Ground on Wednesday, April 13.

Girls are just as welcome as boys and ARL development officer Mike Castle said the clinic would be the only one staged on the Coffs Coast these holidays.

“The day is open to anyone between five and 12 years of age and because there’s no contact, everything will be based on the kids having fun,” he said. “Starting from 10am we’ll be enjoying games of skill and there’ll be coaching from the Orara Valley Axemen first graders.”

Cost for the clinic is $30 and the kids will receive an El Magic kicking tee, ARL boot bag, football, adult season pass to the Axemen’s home games in 2011 and a BCU junior bank account.

Registrations close Wednesday, April 6, and details on how to get involved are available at or by phoning 0402 892 474.

“We haven’t forgotten the surrounding areas and more clinics will be held later in the year,” Castle said.

“Plans will soon be announced for visits to Woolgoolga and Bowraville and if

parents or schools in other centres would like to be considered for future visits, give me a call and we will look at what is available.”
