U8’s object is for kids to enjoy their footy whilst learning basic skills and being part of a team and club. It’s non competitive which means everyone gets the opportunity to play in all positions without concern for the scoreboard. This is a fantastic advantage for those who continue on playing footy in the competitive age groups in the future.
Just a reminder that it is COMPULSORY for all players to have a mouth guard ready for the first practice match which is coming up on March 23rd.
For those players who have ordered mouthguards through the club, we are advised they will be available for pickup on Jumper Presentation Night on March 16th.
