Juniors – Welcome to Season 2016

On behalf of the Hillside Football Club Junior Committee I would like to welcome you all to the 2016 season and hope that you’ve enjoyed a well earned break over the festive period.

All at the Sharks greatly appreciate your support. It’s thanks to the passion and dedication of our supporters, coaches, volunteers and sponsors that our junior players are in good shape for 2016.

While we’ve been enjoying the cricket and tennis we’ve been busy planning for season 2016, some of our activities and initiatives include:

* Appointing coaches
* Allocating grounds and facilities for pre-season and the regular training schedule
* Kicking off Under 8’s
* Registration gift for all junior players
* Parent forum
* Junior events at our club rooms

We look forward to seeing you all at registration day, Sunday 7th February 2016, 11 am to 1 pm at the club rooms. Please remember to register online at www.essendondfl.com.au and keep your eye out on social media for further details.

Congratulations to our EDFL U/15 interleague players who start training this Sunday. Good luck boys, keep striving to do your best and continue to represent yourselves and the Sharks with pride and passion.

I look forward to seeing you at the footy in 2016.

Go Sharks.

Michael Grech
