AFL Star Visits College

by Mr Mitchell Hills

With our Brand new TASC Level 2 Athlete Development AFL specific class we will have an association with the Simon Black Academy and the AFL Tasmania State Academy. We have North Launceston and Simon Black Academy northern coach Tom Couch in to work with the class once a week. Simon Black was in town to meet with his Tasmanian coaches and took the opportunity to come in and do a ‘Question and Answer’ with the class to affirm the association. Simon spoke specifically about transitioning from underage football to senior football and pathways into the AFL. He also touched on lifestyle balance and how important this is.

We thank Mr Tony Daley for organising Simon’s visit, as he has a long standing friendship with Simon. We look forward to hopefully hosting Simon for a skills session later in the year.
