The Club and its People

We saw a special moment on Sunday that typifies everything Lane Cove Cats  is all about.

Aza is only six and in his first season of AFL. Son of Iraqi-Mongolian parents, he has little AFL background but has been enticed into AFL by his school mates.

He signed up in March, and his father Kamaran took the risk of Aza going straight into the U8 competition so he could play with his mates. With unbounding enthusiasm and commitment from our fabulous Auskick coach/coordinator Tony Evers, he has been improving every week.

And on Sunday  after several previous attempts he kicked his very first AFL goal on Sunday! The joy on his face as he ran to his father Kamaran at the next break for a hug was priceless.

This is what Lane Cove Cats Auskick is all about. Having fun with your mates and learning new skills.

Well done to Aza!
