Steve Waugh cricket clinic and soccer clinic

Aspiring cricketers and footballers put their skills to the test over the Easter holiday period.

Children took part in Steve Waugh cricket and Western Sydney Wanderers football holiday clinics.

Bowling and batting skills were tested at the Bradman Oval cricket clinic, as well as strategy, tactics and coaching assistance.

At the David Wood playing field in East Bowral, running with the ball, striking, first touch and one-versus-one skills were tested in the football clinic.

Coach Nikita Marokakis said he liked the energy and attitude of the children who attended the training clinics.

“They’re keen to learn, and develop their football skills to the next level,” he said.

He said he hoped each child came out of the clinic with a smile on their faces and an eagerness to continue the game.

“I hope they enjoy their season and benefitted from these intensive development days,” he said.

The Steve Waugh Cricket coaching clinic was held April 20 and 21, for boys and girls aged between six and 17.

The Western Sydney Wanderers holiday clinic was held April 20 and 21, for boys and girls aged between four and 15.
