GEELONG’s northern suburbs and towns in the Golden Plains, Surf Coast and Corangamite shires will be the focus of the Cats’ annual Community Camp next week.

Players will visit schools, community groups and sporting clubs on Monday and Tuesday.

“We are excited to build on our strong relationship with the Cats to help take the game to regional and rural communities, as well as parts of Geelong’s heartland,” AFL Barwon Regional General Manager Will McGregor said.

“It is an opportunity for players to visit schools, local football clubs and community groups and bring
together individuals and communities, while promoting healthy living.”

“We are also looking forward to working with the Golden Plains Shire to encourage more people to
get active in the community.”

The Cats have previously held camps in Colac and Shepparton and across the Bellarine Peninsula and Surf Coast.

“We have the opportunity to foster positive change in a community that has given so much to the
Cats, our annual AFL Community Camp is a great way to do that,” Cats’ community boss Sarah Albon said.

“Each year our players look forward to getting out into the community, meeting Cats fans and
putting smiles on faces.”
