Junior Football continuing in AFL Goldfields
Due to the impact of COVID19 pandemic lock downs many Auskick programs were not able to reach it through to completion in 2021.
It especially had a major disruption on junior clubs being able to create links with their potential new players which usually occurs in the later weeks of the Auskick program at locations around the region. This is very important for Auskick centers which are not directly linked to a junior club.
To help make it easier for these Auskickers and their families to create a link with local junior clubs on Friday night a Footy 4 Fun evening was held at the City Oval Ballarat with 60 juniors who participated in Auskick in 2021 getting the chance to play in some matches in the style of the BFNL Under 9 competition and enjoy the Western Bulldogs inflatables between their matches.
Parents were also able to gather more information on who they can be contacting to explore their child joining a junior club in 2022.
It was very obvious that the young players loved the opportunity to get out and have a run around after a football and spend some time with their friends.
If any other parents and children are exploring how to find a junior club for 2022 it is recommended you contact AFL Victoria staff within the AFL Goldfields region, Liam Brady 0429 327 085 or Kellie Britt 0499 899 697.
