For the very first time Kulin is set to host a West Australian League Football match at the Freebairn Recreation Centre on Saturday April 30, 2016.
The event is an initiative of the Country Sports Enrichment Scheme which is aimed at helping country WA experience and conduct major sporting events and sport development initiatives.
Freebairn Recreation Centre Manager Simone Lockyer said she was very excited to host the WAFL game because it was a chance to showcase the Recreation Centre’s fantastic facilities.
“I think the teams will be very impressed by our facilities and the vibrancy of our town”.
Kulin Freebairn Centre is a top class facility in the Golden Outback region of WA, famous for its Tin Horse Highway, annual Bush Races and Giant Water Slide.
Shire of Kulin Chief Executive Officer Greg Hadlow said, ‘it will give the teams an opportunity to interact with the local community and sporting clubs.’
‘Small country towns may not have the diversity of people around but what they lack in quantity they make up for in quality of spirit.’
‘We would like to encourage people to visit Kulin to watch the game and consider staying a night to have a look around our town’.
Sports are the lifeblood of rural WA, providing much needed social interaction, promoting a healthy active lifestyle and teaching our youth important life lessons such as team work and leadership.
The Shire of Kulin would like to acknowledge the West Australian Country Football League and the Department of Sport and Recreation for making this event possible through the Country Sports Enrichment Scheme.
Sponsorship opportunities for the event are available, please contact the Kulin Community Resource Centre for more information.
