Great news for our local girls!
This season the WRFL will launch an Under 10 Girls competition, giving aspiring footballers in Melbourne’s west a clear pathway from Juniors through to Seniors. More information can be found here.
Think you'd make a great umpire?
Are you interested in becoming an accredited junior club umpire, or know someone who would be? This is particularly useful for families involved with U8’s, U9’s & U10’s as these teams don’t usually have league umpires allocated. We therefore do expect families to step up and help in these age groups!
The session will run on Monday the 1st of April - 6.30pm at MacKillop College in Werribee. For more information, or to register interest, please email Patrice at email@example.com
Calling all girls aged 7-17!

Time/Location: 4.30-6pm, Thursday 14th March- JK Grant Reserve, Altona
