GIRLS FOOTBALL

The West Footscray Football Club intend to field girls teams in the Under 12 and Under 15 age groups for the 2018 season and beyond. We are seeking players wishing to participate in these teams. We invite all girls who would like to play football at West Footscray to attend our first training session at 5:00 pm, February 19th at Shorten Reserve West Footscray.

We are not concerned about the skill level of any girl who wishes to play. We want girls to simply play, and have fun doing it.

We are very excited about the prospect of West Footscray fielding its first girls teams and we would love for you to be a part of it.

Girls of younger age are also most welcome to join the club and play in 2018 in our Under 10 and Under 9 mixed teams. Modified rules in these age groups ensure that fun is maximised with reduced physical contact.  Modified rules are also applied to the Under 12 competition.  This creates a safer environment to develop those footballing skills whilst keeping the emphasis on enjoyment.

If you would like any further information regarding girls football or are unable to attend this session but would like to register your interest, please email us at w.f.roostersjuniors@gmail.

We look  forward to seeing you at West Footscray this year.

Go Roosters!


JUNIOR PRESEASON AND SIGNUP INFO 2018

Welcome to the Roosters for 2018!!

The Juniors at West Footscray revolve around participation and enjoyment being more important than success. All children are welcome to play at the club regardless of their skill level. This season we will be fielding teams in age groups as follows:

Under 9 and Under 10 (mixed boys and girls)

Under 11 to Under 14 (boys teams)

Under 12 and Under 15 (girls teams)

 

This will be the first time our club has fielded girls teams. This is a very exciting time at our club and something we are very keen to see grow in future seasons. Who knows? Maybe we have a few future AFLW stars waiting to  be discovered! To find out more about girls football at the Roosters click here after reading this page.

Training will take place every Monday afternoon from 5:00 pm at Shorten Reserve West Footscray commencing on February 19. We ask that all children attending these sessions wear runners and not football boots to avoid damaging the playing surface whilst it is still being used for cricket.

We invite all interested parents and children to attend these sessions and register their interest for the coming season.

Registrations will open in late February/early March. We will inform parents immediately once we have opened registrations and will be holding a registration information session on February 26 where we will be able to answer  all your questions  regarding registering your child.

In 2018 will once again be running our All Aboard program to subsidise the cost of participation to eligible participants. Information on last years program can be found on our website by clicking this link.

We can also offer assistance in applying to council programs for registration subsidies. The council subsidy is available to all concession card holders as well as all female participants in their first season at the club. Last year this subsidy covered 75% of the club registration cost.

In 2018, as in previous seasons we will be offering the cheapest club registration in the competition, with sibling discounts to be available once again in 2018.

If you have any further questions you can email us at w.f.roostersjuniors@gmail.com or speak to us at training. To add your details to our mailing list, please click this link.

We look forward to seeing you all at training and you joining the fastest growing and most fun junior football club in the Western Suburbs.

Go Roosters!
