Boots on! We’re back.

The WA Football Commission has officially given the green light for Junior football to get underway for 2020.

2020 season

Games for Junior Football kick off on the weekend of the 18 July for a shortened season. AND Auskick and Starkick returning at Shark Park on Sunday 21 July!!

So, if you’re still to register, now is the time. We’d particularly like to invite any interested Yr3 Girls to come kick some goals.

As our season kicks off, we need to continue being mindful of the Covid-requirements, which includes keeping a 1.5m distance and a capacity limit of 100 people per oval.

Given the size of our East Freo Auskick and Starkick community, there will be some changes to the schedules to allow everyone to safely play. 

More information and updates on how we can navigate our Club through these restrictions will come in the next weeks.

Plus, if anyone is interesting in coaching one of our Auskick team’s please get in touch with Kim.

Thank you so much for your patience and support over what has been a trying time. We can’t wait to see everyone take to the ground!

Return to Training….

But Auskick is still on hold

It’s exciting to see training again underway for our Y3 teams and upwards. Thanks to all the coaches, team managers, volunteers, parents and kids who are making the socially distant training work within the new Covid-19 guidelines. While things are not completely back to normal, we’d all agree the kids (and parents) are absolutely loving being back on the track with their mates.

Given the current restrictions around the number of kids that can play together and the requirements for kids to keep an appropriate distance from each other, Auskick is still on hold.

However, this is a fast moving situation and with restrictions changing regularly, so as soon as we believe we can practically and safely abide by any requirements set the WA Football Commission for our young and enthusiastic Auskickers, we will be looking to get our future Club superstar back in front of goals.

Hello to our new Sponsors

You may have already noticed the change our new training tops, but in 2020 we are delighted to welcome two new major Sponsors to the Club.

Edison McGrath and Loan Monster are both local business and also Club members, and we’d like to thank them for this further support they are showing the Club.

We’re looking forward to working with them over the next few years. If you see them around, or might be in need of real estate or home loan services, please say hello.

Edison McGrath

Aaron and Liv of Edison McGrath facilitate the buying and selling of homes in our local area and surrounds.

Community focused and dedicated to creating a positive memorable customer experience for their clients Aaron and Liv’s commitment to achieving exceptional results is unwavering. They are passionate about understanding their clients’ objectives and delivering the best possible outcomes for them through the buying and selling of property.

Their down to earth, approachable personalities along with local expertise and relentless work ethic make them the obvious choice.

Available 7 days, Aaron and Liv are committed to helping others and feel privileged to be supporting the Footy Club in their local community where they live and work.

Loan Monster

Loan Monster, based in Freo, specialises in new home and investment loans, refinances, commercial and business loans and equipment finance.

They make things easy. Their home loan and mortgage brokers will guide you through the processes, every step of the way.

No two home loans and mortgage refinances are alike. There are numerous financial options available, but navigating them without guidance or clarification can be stressful and time consuming. The wrong choice can also see you pay much more over the long-term.

Whether you’re buying your first home, building a new one, or investing in a property, Loan Monster can help. They genuinely care about their clients and take pride in being highly efficient.

To find out more, please call East Freo local and director Andrew Seigert on 0411 418 101 or catch him at Shark Park on Sundays coaching Auskick.

Welcome to our new President Matt

As the 2020 season looks tantalisingly close to getting underway, we’d like to welcome our new Club President Matt Marinovich.

Matt has been part of the Committee for some time, was instrumental in getting Starkick set up and was also previously the Vice President. If you see Matt out and about, please say hello.

We’d also like to say a big thanks to our outgoing President Peter Keleman, who guided the Club over the past few years to the great position we are in today.

A few words from Matt…

I am a born and bred local East Freo guy who has spent the bulk of my life living in and around this great club. This includes representing the mighty blue and whites as a kid right the way through my juniors. I absolutely love the club and have an enormous amount of great memories from my time playing and training there.

As a kid you never really appreciate all the work that goes on in the background to help it run and it is now my intention to support the club that has given so much to me and now to my kids. Once we get back on the field, we have some really exciting times ahead which I’m proud to be a part of. The opening of our new and improved club rooms (they haven’t changed since I was a kid 35+ year ago, so much overdue!), the incredible growth of our girls and special needs footy groups, an improvement to our ground surface and lighting and just seeing more and more kids come down to enjoy having a kick with their mates.

I’m really looking forward to the role and meeting as many of our great members as possible.
