Sydney Roosters Community Ambassador Anthony Minichiello joined the NRL Game Development team on Monday morning at Coogee Public School to teach the youngest children at the school the very basics of rugby league.

Mini joined the group for the third and final of the NRL Fundamental movement skills program which saw every child from Kindergarten to Year 2 pick up a football and try the very basics of rugby league designed to development fundamental movement skills, spatial awareness and locomotor and non-locomotor skills.

The children warmed up with a game of bull rush before pairing off for to practice three different kicks; Drop, Grubber and Chip.

The Roosters legend rounded of the morning with a question and answer session and every child went home with an autograph and Roosters stationery set.

The Sydney Roosters and Claremont College Year six Fundraiser

Friday 28th October

The Sydney Roosters Community team spent last Friday evening at Claremont College supporting the school’s Year 6 fundraiser. The Roosters ran a ‘Pass The Ball’ station, handed out prizes and donated a framed jersey signed by the NRL squad, which was auctioned off later in the evening.

The fundraiser was action-packed – from the sport zone, to the food stalls and even a dunking activity, the entertainment did not disappoint. ‘Pass The Ball’ was a big hit with children of all ages coming along for a turn and winning prizes.

The night ended with a flashmob performance by the Year 6 students and the auction, with all money raised going back to the school. The Roosters framed jersey was a real highlight and the perfect way to end the night for the lucky winner.

We would like to thank Claremont College for their ongoing support of the Sydney Roosters.

Sunday, 30th October

Last Sunday, the home of Our Big Kitchen was bustling with hundreds of volunteers coming together from the local community, to launch the Helping Hands CarePacs program.

The goal for the afternoon was to make 200 CarePacs, cards of hope and meals for distribution to the homeless whilst creating awareness of the complex problems faced by people in need such as the homeless, victims of domestic violence and refugees. 

The Sydney Roosters Community team and Rocky the Rooster were on hand to help make the CarePacs and volunteered in the kitchen preparing the vegetables for Sunday’s meal for the homeless, a delicious curry.
