Home and Away Season Roundup

Newsletter, Uncategorized
Well done to all teams on finishing the 2017 home and away season. Our Under 9 and Under 10 Coaches and Team Managers can now enjoy a well-earned sleep-in on Sunday mornings after a season of early starts. Under 10 Girls will be sad to see the end of the season, with more and more players joining the team as the season progressed. Our young Under 12 Girls side have shown real grit and determination to keep going in the face of low numbers, and were rewarded with a win in Round 13. Our 12 Blue side were competitive in Red division after being promoted from Silver division where they dominated.

Match Report Round 14 30 July 2017

Uncategorized
Under 11 Gold Well done today Cougars. We dominated the possessions and time in forward line for the whole game. The first quarter was a little frustrating, because we couldn't get the reward on the scoreboard with our dominance. But we asked you to look at the structures and have the forwards move back to the half forward line as they were playing a little too far up to the mid field and we needed to be better with our kicks in to our forward line, looking to our leading forwards. Forward pressure improved, not letting the opposition get the ball out of our forward line easily. Defenders were great but remember you need to be that 'elastic' band and get back on your direct opponent...this needs to improve. Tackling…

Match Report Round 13 23 July 2017 – update

Uncategorized
Under 11 GOLD Well done today...I think we have proven to ourselves we can match it with the 2 top teams. Mill Park only beat us in the 3rd quarter only. We just need that consistency of effort and intensity, with the ferocious attack on the ball and pressure/tackling when we dont have it, and we can beat any one! Plenty of highlights: James brilliant smother that stopped a certain goal. Rory's great attack on the ball in defence and clearing kick to the wing, that's what we want from our defence; win the ball then clear it quickly from defence. Souls's mark and then cooly went back,  took his time, took the necessary steps, watched the football on to the boot and kicked through for a goal. Our tackling…

Training Sunday Under 14 Girls -Update

Uncategorized
Hi All, Sorry for the late notice but we have decided to have a training session on Sunday at 11.30 (new time) on the back oval.  I raised the idea with the team last week and the majority of the girls were keen to have a run.  I understand some would have made plans with the bye scheduled, but if the girls can make it on Sunday it would be great.  We need to build on such a strong performance last week and  I just think I need to grab every opportunity to put work into the girls for the simple reason that they are embracing their footy and getting better and better every week!  Hopefully we have 5 weeks until we play in the grand final which allows us  the…
