Jetstar Gold Coast Dolphins players, including Shannon Walker, David Mead and Mat Rogers, will visit regional centres for the 2010 National Rugby League Community Carnival next week.

The carnival runs from Tweed Heads to Evans Head and involves 26 schools. Free skills clinics will be among the activities.

“This year we are fortunate to have access to players and coaching staff from the Jet Star Gold Coast Titans, who will accompany development staff to school and clinic activities,”ARL development officer Kel Menchin said.

“Our theme at Schools is Eat Well, Play Well, Stay Well. We have a DVD promoting all aspects of a good lifestyle, which is narrated by Scott Prince and Nathan Hindmarsh, along with a host of other NRL players.

“We then have a question and answer time with the Jet Star Gold Coast Titans players and staff.”

The carnival starts in the Tweed on Monday, 8th February, with six schools and a registration and skills clinic in the afternoon, 4pm–5.30pm at Piggabeen Oval, Tweed Heads.

The carnival moves to Byron Bay on Tuesday, 9th February, with school visits and another registration and skills clinic from 4pm–5.30pm at Red Devil Park.
