Registrations Still Open – 3/4 & 5/6 Girls
Yet again the North Beach Junior Football Club has had record numbers and is the biggest football club in the league!
We still have spots available in our Girls Youth teams, in both the 3/4 and 5/6 teams. If your daughter or someone you know is interested please contact Jon Sharp firstname.lastname@example.org asap! Games are played on Friday nights and training is Wednesdays from 4 pm to 5 pm at our ground (Charles Riley).
Allocation Day: for all registered players we will be holding an allocation day at the club on the 28th of April, please arrive by 8:15 am for an 8:30 am start. The morning will be about putting everyone into a team then selecting the coaches and manager for each team. We should then be ready for the first session on the 5th of May at 8:30 am!
Coaching Information Sessions
For all of the amazing parents either coaching or helping to coach Auskick this year, there will be an information session run by Claremont Football on Tuesday the 30th of April at our club rooms (Charles Riley), it’ll begin at 6 pm and the evening should end around 7/7: 30 pm.
The AFL has invested a lot of money and resource into developing a new system for Auskick, including a heap of online videos and resources to make it as easy as possible for you. During the session, we will show you how to run an Auskick session and also where to find the videos and resources (if you’ve never played or coached before you’ll find it quite easy). We’ll get everyone involved and run through some drills and games out on the oval that you can do with the kids so bring your runners! There’s no need to RSVP and everyone is welcome.
Congratulations to our very own Lani Johns (purple) and Joss Stedman (white) who have been taking part in the Dockers Development Academy and were selected to play before the Dockers games on Sunday the 7th of April at Optus Stadium. Well done girls 🙂
