Recently Room 21 have been going to sessions to learn about AFL. AFL stands for Aussie Football League. We learnt heaps of new and handy skills. As we go each week we always build up on our experience of this game. Me i’m still sharpening up on my skills.
The first thing that we learned when we were there was the drop punt. Oh and when you go to kick you always keep the laces on the ball away from our faces that’s one tip. If you want your drop punt to be successful then, when you go to kick it drop it as low as you can. But don’t let the ball touch the ground. when it falls make sure that it is just above ground. Then just give it a little punt then it would travel to the other person.
The other skill that we learnt was the hand pass. This skill uses timing and precisions to ace it. If you do this then the ball will go successfully in the air. This experience is very good for the future. When i'm older when Probably play NRL rugby league i might get a offer from AFL, and I will already know a bit of skills.
I think that AFL is a completely different to rugby but its still fun.
