2005 Wauwatosa Kids Clinic

(Wauwatosa, WI) - For five weekends during the spring, Wauwatosa kids were introduced to Australian Rules football.  In one of the first organized Aussie rules kids programs offered in the country, over twenty kids between the ages of 8 through 16 had the opportunity to work on their handballing, marking, and kicking skills at Longfellow grade school with some of the premier members of the Milwaukee Bombers football club.  With their registration and participation in the event, kids received their own USfooyKids backpack, t-shirt, information about the sport, a certificate of participation, as well as their very first footy.

The Bombers, Milwaukee's local amateur Australian football team, were able to offer the kids clinic through their relationship with the Wauwatosa Recreation Department.  Initiated over the past 12 months with special "footy day" at an area elementary school, the relationship culminated in the special offering of the formal USfootyKids program.  The Bombers also participated in the annual Wauwatosa Independence Day Parade and were a crowd favorite with their long drop punts.  A special USfootyKids introductory program was then offered as part the Recreation Department's Family Fun Day Activities during the larger Independence Day festivities.
