Colts 1

strength in numbers

Following a good win against Macleod last week the Colts 1 pitched in together for a bit of community service - managing to unbog the secretaries car!

U/12 Vic Metro selection

Several players from the two Fitzroy U/12 teams participated in selection trials for the Victorian Under 12 Schools AFL team, through 5 rounds of trials.  Darcy Teele, Connor Lester, Darcy Munro, Lachlan McKain, Ned Long and Josh Ward took part in the Northern Metro Region trials.  Three of the Roys - Lach, Ned and Josh (each in their fourth season with Fitzroy) were among the 88 players invited to go through to the Vic Metro trials, giving Fitzroy JFC the equal highest representation of any junior club.   
All three played some great footy in the trial games, which were of a very high standard,  and Josh and Ned made it through to the 42 player Country and Metro combined trial, from which a final team of 23 was selected. 
Josh was selected in the Victorian team, which will play at the National Championship in Geelong from 19-25 July – 5 matches in all if the team makes it through to the finals.    He has been enjoying training with the Vic team, and has played in practice games mainly as a midfielder and half forward.

Here are a couple of photos from the first game against ACT (Josh played well and kicked 3 goals from half-forward)

Community Sports Infrastructure Fund - To improve facilities for females

The Victorian Government is investing in women’s participation in sport and the Fitzroy Junior Football Club hopes to be at the forefront.

Today, The Minister for Sport, John Eren, joined some of Victoria's top female sports stars to announce applications for the Victorian Government's Female Friendly Facilities grants are open.

FJFC girls teams were involved in the Channel Nine news item which can be viewed here.

Full details of the Victorian Goverment's annoncement can be found http://www.vic.gov.au/news/community-sports-infrastructure-fund.html

Wet, wet, wet

It wouldn't be a footy season without at least one week in the mud and pouring rain. Round 12 it bucketted from dawn to dusk and most games were a slushfest. Still Junior Footballers are accustomed to making the most of whatever they are served and the 15 div1 not only won in the wet but showed they can have a good time doing it. More photos from the U15 div1 Fitzroy V StMarys game here.

Recovery sessions at the Fitzroy Bowling Club

Sunset Sunday, after a round of football, those who played want some protein and those who organised need a break. So kick back and get dinner cooked at the Bowler. Enjoy a drink and chat with some likeminded folk - 5.30 p.m. start.

Roy girls off to National Championships

The club is extremely proud to announce that two of our Roy Girls are off to the School Sport National Championships in Geelong from the 18th to 25th July, 2015. Nell Morris-Dalton (FJFC U15 Girls) has been selected to represent the AFL Victoria Under 16 Development Team in the national competition, whilst Maddy Guerin (FJFC Youth Girls) has been selected in the School Sports Victoria team.
The National Schoolboy Championships were inaugurated in Melbourne in 1923. In 2008 it was renamed ‘The School Sport Australia Australian Football Championships’. In 2009 the first 16 years and under Girls Invitational competition was played between Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia. 2011 saw the Inaugural School Sport Australia Girls 16 years and under Championship held with five member bodies represented and an invitational team from AFL NSW/ACT. The Girls Championship was won by Victoria who also won in 2014.
Good luck to Nell and Maddy for the championships and well done on a fantastic achievement.

 

Amazing Maddy makes it (x2)

Football at Fitzroy has achieved another first, with Maddy Guerin being selected in the U18s Vic Metro and U16’s State squads. By any standard this is a fantastic achievement. Maddy is this week in Mandurah, Western Australia playing in the Australian Youth Girls Championship. Today they beat VIC Country 53 to 18, a great start to their campaign. You can follow the action at http://www.aflcommunityclub.com.au/index.php?id=748.

Maddy played her first season of football last year with the Roys in Gray’s Under 15’s. In that year she managed to make the YJFL U16s representative team as well as poll enough votes in the home and away rounds to be the runner up in the YJFL U15’s best and fairest. She is now playing with the FJFC Youth Girls where her dash and fearless attack on the ball has been greatly appreciated by the team. This year she has trained with the Calder Cannons development squad which has led her to being selected in the Metro and State sides.

Whilst Maddy has plenty of skills and ability it is her attitude to hard work that is one of her best attributes. Maddy takes on her challenges in her considerable stride with confidence, balance and enjoyment – well done Maddy!

The Under 16 State Championships will be played in Geelong between the 18th and 20th of July, so if you can, get down and support her.
