AFTER the runaway success of Mt Lawley Inglewood JFC's Girls Come and Try Day on Wednesday 23 March, the club is delighted to announce that girls teams are locked in for the first time.
More than 25 girls of all ages from a variety of schools attended the Roos' inaugural Girls Come and Try event at Hamer Park - to the delight of Roos Girls Football Co-ordinator Erin Tyers, coaches and committee members who organised the event.
Five Rogers Cup players and East Perth Development Officer Zacchary Binning provided drills and an introduction to the game to girls in Years 5 and above, while six senior players from Roos neighbour the Mt Lawley Hawks FC also generously gave their time to share their passion for footy and a few tips to the youngest attendees at the clinic.
"It was an incredible sight to see and a big leap in the right direction. The Roos are so grateful to the Mt Lawley Hawks and Rogers Cup players and we were thrilled to welcome so many enthusiastic girls, for the first time,'' said club president Lisa Quartermain.
Registrations for the season, which starts on 29 April, are still open but girls are urged to sign up promptly so the club can formulate its place in the local female football competition and confirm the numbers needed to make teams.
The Roos' half-price girls registration deal runs until 30 March - and all players will receive free shorts and socks. More info: https://www.roosjfc.org.au/. Contacts: Darren Tyers firstname.lastname@example.org and Erin Tyers email@example.com
