Today in our 'Leaders in Local' series, we visit K rock and K rock Football, who are in their element right now, out and about in the Geelong and the Surf Coast community as footy season kicks off!

As the region started to open up, they were there to call the GFL's return in 2021 and entertain Geelong and the Surf Coast as they began to venture out.

Here are some of the local things they've been up to:
