Nike AFL Netherlands Workshop
Aussie Rules workshop at the Nike European Headquarters
11 November 2021
Nike and AFL Netherlands teamed up to deliver an Aussie Rules Workshop on the Nike European Headquarters campus in Hilversum. The event was exclusive for Nike employees, being coached by a few of the men’s and women’s coaches from the Amsterdam Devils. For some of the Nike employees, it was their first time back on campus since February 2020 and the beginning of COVID lockdowns in the Netherlands. What better way to be welcomed back than by having an introduction to the greatest sport in the world – Aussie Rules!
For those of you that are not sure what the November weather is like in the Netherlands, it is cold! The coaches got the group moving with a thorough warm-up, took them through the basic techniques required for kicking and handballing and into some drills. Once the group had some time learning the kicking and handball techniques, it was time for a game – Footy Baseball!
The event was a big hit with the Nike team and had people asking when the next workshop would be.
Please reach out to AFL Netherlands if you are interested in an Aussie Rules workshop at your office.
