Roos Football Programs
The Mt Lawley Inglewood Roos JFC has teams in Years 3 to 12 and runs the following football programs.
AFL Kids First
The AFL Kids First is a program for leagues and associations to guide parents so that both they and their children obtain the maximum benefit and enjoyment from their participation in junior football.
Today’s parents have an important role in the delivery and support of sporting activities for their own and other children. With it comes a clear responsibility to act in a constructive and encouraging manner at all times.
Barracking and wanting your child to perform well is human nature, but it's critical this should be done in a responsible manner avoiding the ugly parent syndrome at all times.
AFL Kids First includes recommendations for leagues, associations and their clubs to manage situations where parents become over-enthusiastic and risk having a negative impact on their children's activities.
The basic principles of AFL Kids First are to remind parents that:
- Sport for children is a vital part of their growing up
- Children like to win, but more importantly, they want to have fun
- Parents need to set the right example at the sports ground, not just at home
- Parents should be proud of their child's efforts irrespective of the result
- Sport is important to childrens self esteem
AFL Community Club Improvement Program
The Australian Football League recognises that club volunteers and administrators make a significant contribution to Australian Football. We also recognise that the demands on club volunteers and administrators are increasing along with the need for clubs to operate in a professional manner.
The Swisse AFL Community Club Improvement Program has been specifically developed to assist clubs to examine their current operations and identify areas for improvement.
Upon completion of the Swisse AFL Community Club Improvement Program you will be sent a detailed report that provides best practise information to help formulate action plans on improving your clubs operations and governance in the future.
Through this program clubs may receive recognition for good/excellent club administration
Roos Club Song
Out we come, out we
Keep out of our way
Come on and watch,
We’re here to stay
Heaps of fun, lots of fun,
We’ve enjoyed ourselves today
The Roo boys are hard to beat
When they come out to play
So join in the
and sing it one and all
Join in the chorus,
Mt Lawley’s on the ball.
Good old Mt Lawley,
we’re champions you’ll agree
Mt Lawley is the team to beat
just you wait and see!
