NAB AFL Auskick National Ambassador Shane Crawford will visit Mackay on Friday June 7.
The former Hawthorn AFL Star will meet local Auskickers at a NAB AFL Auskick Super Clinic which will run from 4:30pm to 5:30pm at Harrup Park and, everyone is welcome.
As the father of four young sons – Charlie, Ben and twins Jack and Harry – Crawford has hands on experience with the Auskick program, but despite his impressive AFL credentials he loves nothing more than to join in the games with the kids and other parents.
Crawford played 305 games for Hawthorn from 1993 – 2008, his final match was Hawthorn’s premiership victory.
The champion midfielder won the 1999 Brownlow Medal, was named an All-Australian four times and won four club best and fairests. He represented Australia three times in the International Rules series and in 2002 was captain.
Shane was Hawthorn captain from 1999-2004 and was a Rising Star nominee in 1993.
Crawford will also be AFL Mackay’s guest of honour at a gala dinner to recognise the work of volunteers from NAB AFL Auskick centres throughout the region.
Mackay has the highest NAB AFL Auskick participation numbers in regional Queensland and the night will honour volunteers from Mackay and surrounding areas including Airlie Beach, Bowen and Moranbah.
