During a weekend of no footy for our Under 11 dteam, we decided to play a game between the kids and dad's ( mums were invited too ). Great time was had followed by a bbq. The kids as you would expect took it in there stride but there were some dad's nursing muscles they had forgotten existed. Look out for another game in the future.
These boys are a testament to the club spirit we have at Figtree Roos. They have all played in the club and now have chosen to give back by volunteering their time to coach and manage our U/13's.
Kyle and Brady are working collaboratively on Tuesdays to train the U/13 boys. Kyle has been coaching on game days when he is available and Isaak has taken on team manager, organising the behind the scenes requirements of running a team.
Each of these boys is busy with their school studies, representative football commitments, part-time work and their generosity is truly appreciated by our Club.
Great work boys and thank you.
April saw the Auskickers get to make their SCG debut during the half time of the Swans v West Coast game. By all accounts they all enjoyed the experience.
Two home games have seen some fantastic weather and fantastic footy by all our kids. Thanks to all our volunteers who are helping to keep the bbq and canteen going as well as other game day jobs that need to be done.
Looking forward to the next games and seeing happy kids enjoying themselves.
Saturday the 28th May saw us raising money for a worthy cause that is close to the heart of our club. One of our members, Nicholas Dale, is struggling through a battle with Leukaemia/ Lymphoma and we took the chance to set aside the day to raise as much money as we could towards the Lukemia Foundation to help in the search for a cure.
A great day was had by all with the Wollongong Saints playing their first game at Figgy Oval and scoring a big win over Wollandilly. This was followed by Reserve Grade getting the better of Dapto and First Grade having a hard day at the office against Wollongong.
The footy was good, the support even better, Thanks to Dapto for their donation and at this time we have raised $2150.00 for the Leukaemia Foundation.
