Dads and kids get a kick out of event

Good Shepherd Catholic Primary, Hoxton Park pupils and their dads attended soccer clinics with the Mounties Wanderers across two nights last month.

The goal was not winning. The event, held by Mounties for the third straight year, gave 60 children and their dads an opportunity to raise awareness on the positive impact of great relationships.

The evening sessions gave each child the opportunity to spend quality time with their father and learn about the benefits of a balanced, healthy lifestyle.

Mounties Wanderers first grade players were on hand to put attendees through their paces, offer tips and tricks and facilitate small-sided games and drill exercises.

The evening included a talk on injury maintenance, nutrition and the importance of sleep for a balanced life.

Mounties Group president Kevin Ingram said they were proud to support the development of positive relationships between dads and their kids.

"By encouraging these behaviours in a fun way, we hope to give the younger members of our community lifelong skills to help them grow and develop," Mr Ingram said.

"We love bringing families, the Mounties Wanderers and Mounties employees together for these fun filled evenings and look forward to hosting many more for the local community."
