U6: We had a fun session for 12 today & the rain stayed away. All the boys and girls are getting fitter & stronger & understanding why this is important. We tried some new running & catching & passing drills to improve catching a moving ball.
Finally a little match showed how the boys & girls are understanding the game better & getting the hang of defense & attack. Special mention to the most improved of the group today Dylan Passaway who really got stuck in in! Also to Ben who showed that hard work & determination paid off to make him a very deserving winner of the trophy today!
See you next week

U8: The Annual John Mitchels Blitz held last Saturday provided our under eight players with a busy day of challenging football and fun. In all our players had five go-games against Firies, Desmonds, Milltown/Castlemaine, John Mitchells and Austin Stacks respectively. They represented the club well with an overall display of great energy, skill and commitment. So well done to Hugh Costello, Tommy Costello, James Daly, Stephen Enright, Eddie Hayes, Isaac Price, Bruce McMillan, Jace Flynn, Rylan Flynn and Blake Bowler. Thanks to their parents for having them at the blitz and to those who were able to stay and support them. Our appreciation goes to the John Mitchell’s Club for organising and efficiently hosting the blitz
