Welcome to all returning and new players and their families. We are all looking forward to the 2018 season. We will be celebrating the clubs centenary year. Founded in 1918 as a place for young men to come together and play football, it is still serving the community with over 300 boys and girls expected to be part of this historical year.
The 2018 Committee welcome new members Trish Moore, Jenny Molnar, Shannon McKay, Jordan Beckwith and Petra Kunze. We look forward to your input and support over the coming years, while we humbly thank Gary Whatman and Vinnie Turcinovich for their contributions over the past few seasons as they step down from their roles on committee.
Online registrations are now open and I urge parents to log on and register their sons or daughters with the WRFL as soon as possible. The only portion you are required to pay is the $12.50 per player WRFL registration fee at this time. The club fees will be remaining at $190 per player, final due date is March 2018 with no obligation to pay this portion until the New Year. Gaining an understanding of player numbers is a crucial step in the committees planning at this stage of the season and the WRFL registration process helps us with this.
As well as registering online, we invite all players and parents to come down to the clubrooms on Friday 17th November, between 5:30pm and 7:30pm. This is a chance to meet the coaches and also register if you haven’t already done so. Club fees will be accepted for those who wish to pay on the night.
Pre-season training has already kicked off for the Youth Girls teams and numbers are building for the newly formed U18 Youth Girls team. Any girls wishing to get involved should check our social media outlets for training session details.
Preseason training for the majority of other teams will not start until the second week of February 2018. However, Under 17 training starts on Tuesday 21st November, with 10 sessions before Christmas. Check social media outlets for other news regarding training sessions and I’m sure you will hear from your coaches when something gets planned.
