Dogs to return to Ballarat

Bonti's biggest fan Bulldogs TV were on the scene as Marcus Bontempelli, Lin Jong and Jason Johannisen surprise a young Bulldogs fan at home in Ballarat.

The Western Bulldogs will further strengthen its partnership with Ballarat by returning to the region for the 2016 Australia Post AFL Community Camp.

The Club’s players and staff will spend two days in the region across Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 February, visiting schools and community groups, conducting clinics and holding open training sessions.

Western Bulldogs Ballarat Engagement Manager Brett Goodes said the Club looked forward to spending more time in Ballarat, after a highly successful and enjoyable visit in 2015.

“The Camp is a terrific opportunity to show how much we value and appreciate the region, and our players and staff are very much looking forward to once again connecting with the people of Ballarat.”

The 2016 Australia Post AFL Community Camps will see 18 AFL Clubs visit both metropolitan and regional locations over February and March.

Over 750 players will spend time meeting fans and developing stronger links with the community.

In its 12th year, the Australia Post AFL Community Camps have reached a total of 971,716 students across 5,050 school visits since the program’s inception in 2003.
