Fremantle Dockers stars Ryan Nyhuis and Tommy Sheridan visited Fremantle PCYC to spend some time with local youth attending their Safe Space program, a youth crime intervention program that provides youth aged 7 to 17 years with a safe place to come hang out with their friends.
Come rain or shine, young people from the program were over the moon to be spending time with the players, with an impressive 20 young people braving the cold for the chance to meet their favourite football stars.
The players spent the afternoon indoors due to the rain, playing team building games with youth. One of the most popular team building activities by far involved making a tower using only spaghetti sticks and marshmallows.
Fremantle PCYC Centre Manger Julie Gorman said the young people who came along had lots of fun.
“The kids were divided into two teams, Team Ryan and Team Tommy, then they had to work together to complete a number of fun challenges” she said.
“There was a huge focus on team building, everyone had an equal voice and could share ideas.
“You could really see that they wanted to impart the importance of team building with the kids and share the importance of good sportsmanship and working together.
“Huge thank you to the players for coming out in their own time to spend time with our youth.”
The players were visiting as part of Fremantle Players Community Giving set up by Fremantle Foundation where players generously donate their own time and money to help give back to the local community and help raise money for the ongoing support of disadvantaged young people in the Fremantle/Cockburn area.
