The Best You Can Be Blitz rolls on through Shoalhaven

The Dragons conducted school visits and gala days throughout the Shoalhaven region last week as the Best You Can Be Blitz continued. 

Gerringong locals Hamish Stewart and Dylan Egan kicked things off down at Gerringong Public School with Josh Coric, Connor Muhleisen, and Jackson Shereb heading to Kiama Public School.

From there, they continued south with the playing stopping by Bomaderry Public
School, Greenwell Point Public School, and Terara Public School.

The visits focused on how students can be at their best in the classroom with players emphasising the importance of respecting one another and providing support to each other to ensure everyone can be at their best.

Several rugby league gala days also took place throughout the region with Francis Ryan Reserve playing host to the first gala day which saw six schools participate in both tackle and league tag.

Huskisson Public School, St George Basin Public School, Sanctuary Point Public
School, Jervis Bay Public School, Bomaderry Public School and Sussex Inlet Public School were among the schools in attendance.

Bomaderry hosted a pair of gala days with the first being targeted at the under-15s and open age groups with Nowra High School, Bomaderry High School, Vincentia High School, Shoalhaven High School and Ulladulla High School all taking part in the day.

The second was the Shoalhaven Legends Primary School Day with Culburra Public School, East Nowra Public School, Nowra Public School, Shoalhaven Heads Public School and Terara Public School all in attendance.

It gave young students the opportunity to try rugby league for the first time in either a tackle or tag format with the goal of bolstering junior rugby league club numbers coming into the upcoming season.
