For those who are joining our great Club, we welcome you and wish you all the best for the coming season. We look forward to guiding and watching you develop as players, and we welcome your family to the club as well.
For those players that are returning this season, welcome back and we wish you all a successful season 2018 and beyond.
We are looking forward to a very exciting season 2018, with the continuation of the merge with the Sunbury Football Netball Club - Senior Division. With the continued support from our senior counterparts, our club will be bigger and better in the coming years, with the transition from junior to senior football or netball a seamless experience.
The football department will work more closely with the senior club this year to ensure future transition from junior to senior football is made less daunting. This will be driven by newly appointed Under 17’s coach Andrew Hall.
We are working towards having all home games scheduled at the same ground on the same day this year, utilising the facilities at Clarke Oval, a ground at which we have a great Home Ground advantage. The facilities are second to none and were great for us last season.
Club President - Mark Cooke, and new committee members, are working through feedback received from our inaugural Merger year and are looking to implement some changes to make the second year at the Clarke Oval better than the first.
The 2018 season sees the competition move to odd number age groups with the League now offering under 9’s which intends to bridge the gap between Auskick and Junior Footy. We will also be fielding multiple teams in the Under 11, Under 13, Under 15 and Under 17 competitions.
Coaches have been hard at work on training schedules, programs and strategies and will be working as a whole team in order to ensure values and standards are implemented and maintained across all age groups. The clubs ultimate goal is to build on the 2017 season and strive to put more premiership flags on our walls and build sustainable success.
We at Sunbury Lions are committed to providing a safe, friendly and welcoming environment for our players and their families. We will be holding several social events throughout the season and look forward to our families, new and old in joining us at these events and getting to know other members of our sporting community in a relaxed social setting.
Once again, Welcome to the Sunbury Football Netball Club - Junior Division, and we as a committee look forward to meeting each one of our members, and having a fantastic season 2018.
Go the Mighty Lions!
