Thanks to everyone who took part, playing or volunteering, at our intra-club trials last Saturday. It’s pleasing to see how our structures and game plans are taking shape; and there was some seriously good footy played last Saturday.
This week our preparations go to the next stage, as we take on an opposition club in trial games. With the number of teams we have, we’re playing on both Saturday and Sunday; at Mahoney Park at Marrickville.
Our schedule for the weekend is:
Saturday 9:30am – Under 19s (18 minute quarters)
Saturday 11:15am – Thirds (18 minute quarters)
Saturday 1pm – Reserves (20 minute quarters)
Saturday 3pm – Seniors (20 minute quarters)
Sunday 11am – 4ths & 5ths (18 minute quarters)
Sunday 12:45pm – Women (15 minute quarters). Depending on numbers, we’ll either play two games or one six-quarter game.
Players, please confirm your availability to your coaches ASAP.
The following weekend will be team-specific activities; your team’s coach will advise you what you’re doing and where and when you’re expected to be there.
The weekend after, on the weekend of 24-25 March, we’ll have another round of trial games against UNSW-ES. Game times to be confirmed.
The season proper will get under way on the weekend of 7-8 April. AFL Sydney will release the fixtures shortly, and we’ll put them up as soon as they’re available.
