Local Docker Living The Dream!

Congratulations to Lake Macquarie’s Isaac Pearson, who has received an opportunity of a lifetime.

Live the Dream is a once in a lifetime opportunity for 16 young Australians to become immersed in the culture of the Fremantle Dockers Football Club and “live the life” of an AFL player for five days.

The Fremantle Dockers, in conjunction with Decmil, are thrilled to be able to offer this program to the community. Live the Dream offers participants a rare opportunity to develop skills and behaviours which can deliver long-term benefits to the individual and their local community.

We wish Isaac all the best, and can’t wait to hear all about his experiences.
