Keebra Park development day

Author : Darren Hart – Keebra Park SHS

The first of two Keebra Park development days and orientation days scheduled for term 4 kicked off this week with a 60 or so prospective grade 5 and 6 students from a range of local primary schools and from as far afield as Redcliffe converging on the ovals in preparation for joining the grade 7 cohort in 2022.

Joining these future students were alumni and current NRL players, Jai Arrow, Tanah Boyd and Jesse Arthurs and members of our current Opens Schoolboy side to reinforce the real pathways on offer at Keebra Park.

Tanah who has just signed a new 3 year deal with the Titans said that it was always good to be back at Keebra.

“I have good memories of my time here at school and it wasn’t so long ago that I was part of one of these development days.

I was always aware of the players that had come before me and if I can inspire just one of the boys to follow their dream then that’s great”

The future students were put through a series of rotations and drills under the supervision of coaching staff that covered the basics of tackling, passing and spatial awareness and Jai, Jesses and Tanah were on hand, giving feedback, encouragement and advice.

“Any advice I can offer these young players that will help their game is something I feel privileged to be able to do” Said Jai.

“Giving back has always been important to me as I am lucky to have a career doing what I love and I see it as part of my job as a whole to support the next generation of players”

The day was particularly exciting for two of the future students, Hans Haas and Sio Pule Pule who not only got to meet our alumni but were also interviewed by Dominique Loudon of Channel Nine Gold Coast News.

Hans, the younger of brother of Broncos Players player of year Payne Haas said he was looking forward to following in brothers footsteps and that Payne had already been teaching him how to defend while Sio said he was looking forward to stepping up to the meet High Expectations and that he knows Keebra Park expect both on and off the field.

The second of these days will be held at the end of term four and we look forward to seeing all the boys again as they prepare for 2022
