Almanac Junior Footy: Looking for three footballers to play with Fitzroy Under 10-S
Fitzroy Under 9-S is one of the great footy teams on the planet.
We have a delightful bunch of kids and coaches and parents. It seems we share a common outlook: fun, friendship, commitment to the team, skills development, giving your best, playing fairly, encouraging each other, learning and a yearning to break 80 at Yarra Bend Golf Club.
We train once a week at Alfred Crescent which is part of Edinburgh Gardens and the Brunswick Street Oval precinct. We play a game once a week on Sunday morning – in the Yarra Junior Footy League – either home or away.
The kids are at various stages of their footy development, keeping in mind they have had just one season together. So your young footballer will fit in no matter what their level of experience and skill. All kids are given equal time on the ground.
The parents are terrific. For home games, we gather on the Red Symons Wing:
We understand if you’ve woken up a little shabby on Sunday morning – our coaches are not too loud and the canteen coffee does the trick.
We are good listeners. If you need to unburden yourself of the week’s chaos we will listen.
We are not hung up on your skills. Minimum requirement is to be able to cut oranges into quarters, and we will accept eighths. There is no Level 3 Citrus Fruit Preparation Accreditation requirement.
However, you may be invited to the pub at some stage.
So, sign up!
WE NEED THREE MORE PLAYERS TO ENSURE WE KEEP THIS MAGNIFICENT SQUAD TOGETHER.
If your child was born in 2007, and you’re keen, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you our coach Keli’s details.
