Aspiring Great Southern footballers took part in the Nic Naitanui Academy that was held in the region at the weekend. The Nic Naitanui Academy was searching for players born between 2006-2011 from an Indigenous or multicultural background. There was also a female clinic for girls aged 12 and over run on Saturday after the Naitanui academy session. Kim Hannah (Perth), Bradd Dalziell (Perth), Josh Cassidy (South West) and Sam Rotham (South West) helped co-ordinate the activities along with Nic Naitanui Academy representative for the Great Southern, Brad Nisbett. Denmark Primary School and Denmark Agricultural College had Dalziell, a former West Coast Eagles player, at their school to speak about leadership and run some fun and engaging activities. On Saturday, a clinic was conducted at Retravision Stadium with 18 participants after 30 initial registrations. The participants who attended received advice on their kicking techniques and styles, combined with fun and engaging activities. The Nic Naitanui Academy then hit the road and drove out to Gnowangerup to conduct another clinic, with 14 participants on a beautiful day on Sunday. Players drove far and wide to attend the clinic, coming from Tambellup, Kojonup, Borden and the host town.
