All Modified players receive an engraved participation medallion at the end of the season. Each week, awards for effort (sponsored vouchers) are given out by coaches and/or selected parents.
Youths: From Year 7 onwards, a voting system is used by coaches/managers throughout the year to determine each team's Best and Fairest player for the season. Runner-up Best & Fairest trophies and two other coaches awards are also presented at an end-of-season club awards night hosted by the club president. Each week, awards for effort (sponsored vouchers) are given out by coaches and/or selected parents. At WAFC level, players who poll the highest number of umpire votes over the season are awarded with WAFC Best & Fairest Awards, presented at a gala event attended by all clubs in the Central Conference District.
The Club Person of the Year Award is named at the Youth Fairest & Best Night, and is determined by the President of the club. The award recognises an individual who has gone above and beyond to achieve significant improvements or benefits to the club as whole.
The President's Award is awarded to an individual or individuals who has dedicated significant time and support to the committee in its endeavours to the run the season.
WAFC District Club Person of the Year Award: This award is decided by a vote by the committee and is presented at the WAFC end-of-season volunteers awards night.
Just like in the AFL & WAFL, every player and their team mates enjoy celebrating their milestones by running through a banner that highlights the achievement - milestone games also may provide extra incentive for a team victory.
The Roos have two ready-made milestone banners available for any player to use - 50-game and 100-game banners.
Individual banners are made to celebrate milestones. Please contact the Facilities Manager.
How to make an individual milestone banner
It requires some effort but making a banner will give your child lasting memories of their special day. Banners come in all shapes and sizes.
YOU WILL NEED
For a 4-line Blue and White banner you:
2 x Royal Blue crepe paper (approx. 50cm x 2m)
2 x White crepe paper (approx. 50cm x 2m)
White & blue letters (printed from a computer) using A4 paper
As an alternative to printing and cutting out letters you could also use blue and white craft paint to paint the letters on the banner
Role of thick (48mm), clear packing or masking tape
Masking tape is easier for the players to break through the banner
2 x ~2.4m length poles 15-20mm thick
The club has 2 x 2.4m, 18mm thick poles
On a computer using a font such as Impact which give nice bold letters that are easy to cut out.
To get two letters per standard A4 landscape page (5mm margins) set the font size to 660 pts and line spacing to be ~ 680 pts.
If you want bigger letters change to A4 portrait and set the font to be size ~860 pts and line spacing to ~ 930 pts
Microsoft Word template can be downloaded from here Banner_Templates
These only work when downloaded and opened in Microsoft Word rather than editing using Word Online.
When printing white letters using white paper and blue letters using blue paper, set the font to be an outline style.
When printing blue letters using white paper, set the font to be solid style (Note this can use a lot of ink)
You can purchase Royal Blue A4 paper (Quill A4 Royal Blue) from Officeworks ~ 25 pk ~$3.50
Roll each packet of crepe paper out to a length of 2 metres
Lay crepe paper lengths side by side, overlapping as required to fit the number of rows onto the poles
Use 4 whole lengths of crepe paper, as below, to make a background for your message.
If you have more than about 6 names you made need to add extra rows
Run tape down each side of the banner to keep all lengths together
Run tape across each seam where crepe paper overlaps
Carefully turnover and repeat process
Turn both short ends in 10 centimetres and tape down exposed edge to create pockets for poles
Cut out your letters and glue/tape them on the banner and space as you like
