Bloods Summer Update


Dear Bloods,


Summer is upon us and Queens Park is at it’s spectacular best. The tip turkeys are everywhere, the pool’s open, the new cricket nets are in full operation and the Canteen extension is finished and in use. How lucky we are.


Firstly the HJFC would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. We hope you have an enjoyable and safe holiday period.


Have you noticed the registration banners strategically placed around town? 2018 is going to be a year to remember at the HJFC and we are aiming to provide every child who has even a mild interest in footy an environment where they feel welcome, can hang out with their mates, train hard and play for the Bloods.


Girls Football

Girl’s football is flying off the back of the AFLW. We will provide an opportunity for all girls from the community interested in playing. We are working hard to obtain funding to modify the girls toilets and make them much more female friendly.


Healesville Rotary have approached the HJFC and pledged significant resource and financial support to develop girl’s football in our community over the next three years. With Rotary’s assistance the HJFC will create and sustain a fantastic environment for every girl to play our great game.


We will be initially launching two female training groups with an U10/12 group coached by John O’Brien and an U14/16 group coached by Heather Christie. We really believe that we can field teams in each of the age groups (10, 12, 14 and 16) in 2018. We are continuing to pursue potential coaches for the additional age groups.


Once training commences and we can determine the numbers in each group and make the appropriate arrangements. If anyone knows of anyone with an interest in coaching either an U10 or U14 group please have him or her make contact.



The Canteen is ready to go and thankfully Clare Moreton will again help us out as Canteen Manager in 2018. Thanks again Clare for putting your hand up, the new Canteen will hopefully make your job easier.


2018 Registration

Registration is proceeding OK. As we keep on banging on about, we need everyone’s help registering. At this stage we only have half the registrations we’d hoped for so again please help us out and take 60 seconds to register so we can plan.




2018 Membership Fees

In 2018 Membership Fees will remain as in 2017. The Committee wants to ensure that playing for the HJFC in the AFL Yarra Ranges is affordable and will always endeavor to minimise fees:


Child 1            = $160

Child 2+         = $135

2018 Sponsorship

We are again on the hunt for sponsors. In conjunction with the HFNC the HJFC is offering the opportunity for sponsors to have fence signs at both Queens Park and the Don Rd Complex. The cost is $1,000 and the cost of the signs. Having signs at the two venues increases your exposure by well over 50%. Of course a range of sponsorship opportunities from Team Sponsor to Jumper Sponsor are available also. Please direct any sponsorship enquiries to Toby Millman on 0412 317 240.
