We were fortunate to have Tyla Hanks from the Melbourne AFLW club run a clinic for our Year 9 and 10 AFL girls. Tyla is an AFL Academy member and All-Australian, who was the 6th draft pick in the 2018 draft and was recruited from Carlton VFLW after playing for Beaconsfield Junior Football Club and Gippsland Power as a junior.
Tyla shared invaluable knowledge about women’s football and techniques specific for girls in the game. The girls worked through a number of drills with Tyla, where they were able to refine their skills and game play strategies.
This was a wonderful opportunity for Newhaven College students and we are extremely grateful to Tyla for taking the time to share her expertise.
