Drummoyne Power players

Season Launch: 1 April

Season Launch (aka Pie Night, aka Pizza Night): 1 April

This event will now be held at DRUMMOYNE OVAL ON WEDNESDAY 1 APRIL. This is the first training at Drummoyne Oval. We’ve made the switch to give us a bit more time to get everything together, plus Drummoyne Oval is a better venue in the event of wet weather.

U5-U8, your season launch will be immediately after your training at 5.30pm on 1 April. we’ll hand out shorts and socks (while the kids are training and only if you need them, or didn’t pick them up earlier) and give kids the Auskick packs along with some pizza and a drink, and a training t-shirt.

U9-U11 and Youth Girls, your season launch will be after your training, so that’s 6.30 on 1 April. Collect your shorts and socks and a Drummoyne Power cap. And we’ll also have pizza and a drink for you! U17s, we’ll organise some pizza and gear for after your training session as well.

Can you help out on the night, distributing gear or food and drinks? Email Milan: volunteers@drummoynepower.com

Just a note: we can order gluten free if necessary. Email Milan on the email address above.

And a second – really important – note: We’re just catering for the players – not adults and siblings.

Youth Girls U18 in action

New Youth Girls Coach: Max Friend

 

I would like to formally introduce myself to the players, parents and officials of the Drummoyne 18s Youth girls team.

I am excited to take on the coaching position for 2015 and to work with a very talented team and great club. I have 5 years experience coaching the Glebe Greyhounds and have been assistant coach of inner city representative teams on a number of occasions. This year I have also been appointed head coach of the Balmain Dockers Women’s AFL team. This relationship with the Dockers will provide great opportunities throughout the year for the Drummoyne girls to experience higher levels of football.

I have a genuine interest in coaching and instruction and have a passion for AFL and its development in the Sydney area. When I am not coaching or playing football, I work as a teacher at Kingsgrove High School.

In 2015 I want to build on the previous successful year experienced by the Drummoyne girls, developing skills in a fun and pleasant environment for players, parents and all officials. I would like to work closely with the Drummoyne girls 14s team and Balmain women’s club to make transitioning to higher levels of football easier while introducing players to new skills and playing standards.

In the interests of building the team and the club, I would like to call on everyone involved with the Drummoyne girls to start recruiting as many new players as possible. I look forward to meeting the team, parents over the next few weeks as the football season begins.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or queries.
