January School Holiday Camp – Wrap up

We had something for everyone at this year’s January school holiday camps, from rugby league to dance.

Junior Sydney Roosters fans were treated to a day full of fun, fitness and friendship building activities.

All the kids had the chance to meet some of their Roosters heroes with appearances from selected players and Roosters legends.  

Footy Fever on the Central Coast

Held for the first time at Southlakes Roosters Junior Rugby League Club, a member of the League of Roosters initiative taught children some of the core fundamental skills of rugby league.

Rounding off the day was a signing session and presentation from Roosters stars Nat Butcher and Siosiua Taukeiaho.

The Sydney Roosters Community team hosted the Roosters ‘Tunnel, Turf, Try’ camp, which had all attendees testing out their Rugby league skills throughout the day.

The camp included tours of the Central Coast Stadium home and away changes rooms, a walk down the tunnel and a chance to meet Roosters players Jayden Nikorima and Michael Gordon.

Make, Bake, Move in Our Big Kitchen

For the first time ever, the Sydney Roosters partnered up with Our Big Kitchen – Bondi to offer the camp attendees a chance to give back to the community in our ‘Bake, Make & Move’ camp.

The children participated in the cooking, preparation and delivery of care packs for the less fortunate.

Another activity on the day consisted of a rugby league skills based activities, which gave the participants the chance to receive some tips from Roosters star prop Dylan Napa and Club legend Anthony Minichiello.

During this session the attendees gained valuable rugby league knowledge and were able to put their newly found skills to practice.  

Move and Groove in the Eastern Suburbs

Finishing up the camps were the ‘Move & Groove’ and ‘Tunnel, Turf, Try’ camps in the Eastern Suburbs.

Attendees from both camps were treated to a behind the scenes tour of Allianz Stadium, outdoor rugby league, dance based activities and an indoor RESPECT session which took place in the NRL Learning Centre.

Attendees started the day outdoors, taking part in rugby league based activities before moving into Allianz Stadium to experience what it could be like to be a Roosters Player with tours of the change rooms, ice baths and a walk down the tunnel.

The RESPECT presentation focused on social inclusion and respect for others around you.

The attendees were treated to a special presentation when two Roosters star Kane Evans and Dylan Napa dropped by to say hello.

Concluding the day was a signing session, which gave the children a chance to meet the boys, grab an autograph and take a selfie, all whilst enjoying a delicious slice of pizza.
