In 2023 we are looking to field teams in the SANFL Juniors competition for children aged between 6 and 14 years old at 31 December 2023. Final teams will be subject to registration numbers and as in previous seasons, if your child doesn’t quite fit into the age brackets, we will liaise with the SANFL for permits to allow under and over age players to participate.
We have coaches confirmed for all grades and these appointments will be announced on December 2nd at the Club Xmas Drinks (see further information below).
Playing fees for 2023 will be $200 with a discount of $50 for siblings and children of ex-players (new players only). The government Sports Voucher can be used and continues to be worth $100.
Anyone who introduces new registered players in any grade will be entitled to 50% off your child’s playing fees for 2023, so start introducing the club to your family, friends, and school community!
We will also be holding an Auskick Clinic in Term 1 (dates to be confirmed soon). This suits 4, 5 and 6 year old children as well as older kids who will benefit from learning skills before playing in SANFL Juniors.
In 2023 we are looking forward to an even closer link between our Junior Bulldogs and the Senior players who have recruited well and are looking forward to another successful season in a higher grade. Some initiatives to expect are:
A buddy system where each junior player will be partnered up with a senior player for support, encouragement, and mentoring
Assistance with the BBQ from senior players at all junior home games!
Merging of some committee roles which will ease the load of our parent volunteers
Promotion of parent/child Bulldogs ie those junior players who have had parents playing senior cricket, netball or football with the club
