Girls play AFL

Female footy is continuing to grow and Drummoyne Power is the place to start!

Our Auskick program for U5 through to U8s is the perfect place for girls (and boys) to learn basic footy skills. There’s no tackling, modified rules and an inclusive atmosphere. Auskick is fun and safe, and a great place for girls involved in this terrific team sport.

Girls can play alongside boys up to the age of 14, and we have girls playing in Drummoyne Power’s U9 to U11 teams.

But we also offer all-girls teams from U10 through to U18 as part of our Canada Bay Cannons youth AFL club.

Why not give it a try in Season 2021? Registrations are open now.

PS: Don’t forget to claim your Active Kids Voucher before registering… it takes $100 off the cost of registration. All the details and links are on our registration page.

Volunteer for Season 2021

Footy season will be here before you know it! We’re looking for volunteers – at a team and club level – to help get our kids on the footy field in Season 2021.

If you’re interested in coaching or managing a team or helping out on our Board,  please let us know.

Volunteering for your local footy club is a great way to be part of your community, and to be involved in a sport your child loves.

We can tailor your volunteer experience to your skill set and availability. While some roles such as coaching or managing a team require weekly commitment, others may need just an hour or two at home games or midweek.

Drummoyne U7 vs East U7

The balmy winter weather continued as we headed to Trumper Park to take on Easts in the final game of the home and away season 2018.

Highlights package:

Q1

After an early conceded behind, Jack Cameron cleared the ball to Fletcher who moved the ball up the middle to the safe hands of Charlotte and Zoe

Jack clears the ball, this time up the middle to Ned takes advantage and kicks to an open goal (6 points!)

Ned centres the ball to Jeremy, clearing the ball to Isaac M who hand passes nicely to the reliable goal scorer, Ned, who now has his 2nd goal of the quarter

Our defence does its best to divert an attack on goal forcing Easts to kick a left footed goal from the left forward pocket

Isaac M taps it onto Fletcher who moves the ball forward to Ned, who unselfishly hand passes to Jeremy, who is awarded a free kick – almost a goal as the kick is stopped on the line (we really need to get video replays for the Under 7s next season!)

Isaac M again again advances the ball from defence, offloading to Jeremy who strides out and takes a shot to score another major.

A courageous block (worthy of a man of the match effort) by Ned, sustaining a closed head injury; shortly after Ned marks the ball, proving his resilience, then kicks massively for a clean chest mark by Jack.

It’s a game of “forcings back” with Ned marking and then kicking upfield to Jack and a short time later the same sequence is repeated.

Isaac M succeeds in hand balling a massive ice cream scoop hand pass upfield to set up a play.

Wonderful goal defending by Tyler to keep Easts modest in the scoring department.

Just before the siren and symbolic of the improvement across the team over the season, a power play with uninterrupted possession from Jeremy kicking from the goal square laterally to the right, accepted by Ned who hugs the side line running up towards centre field and centring the ball slightly with a kick to Jack, who is assisted by Charlotte in gathering the ball so that he can pass to Fletcher who puts it through the big sticks for a wonderful team goal.

Q2

The dominance of Drummoyne continued.

A couple of marks by Jeremy to start the quarter off, followed by a big downfield boot of the ball to Jack, who (not for the last time today) curves the ball off the outside of his foot through the posts for a goal.

Ned kicks to Jack and Ned who take a joint mark, showing their keenness and keeping of eyes on the ball.

A block by Jack, who shares the ball to allow Tyler to take his chance, which he certainly does as another major score is added to the total, thanks to some help also from Zoe.

A contested pick up by Jack in defence, then a big kick upfield where Hugh scores a behind from a difficult angle.

Great team work from Drummoyne, sharing and moving the ball rapidly at every play. Strong in defence and aggressive in attack saw goals aplenty from everyone.

Tyler fashions a left foot kick in from a stoppage, Jeremy gathering the ball, sharing it quickly to Hugh who scores a goal kicking on an angle.

Q3

Ned gets another big kick away upfield to Charlotte, Charlotte has a good shot and scores a behind.

Ned in the forwards intercepts the ball and works his way around a player to convert another goal.

Jack kicks another goal off the outside of his boot.

Hugh gets a touch on a shot at goal by Easts to prevent a goal, followed by an accurate kick out by Ned.

Fletcher swerves and kicks a beautiful left footed kick upfield.

Jack scores yet another goal off the right side of his boot from the left boundary line.

Ned to Jack to Zoe in a string of hand passes.

Ned is awarded man of the match for his outstanding goal scoring. Well done all and thank you to coach Carolyn.

Under 7 Drummoyne Powers VS Maroubra Saints

Round 11

The week leading up to Saturday’s showdown, between Drummoyne Power and Maroubra Saints, saw Sydney experience a deluge and wild weather. It was therefore expected that the grounds at Heffron Park would be slightly sludgy to play on and the spectators would be in for an exciting game: And most definitely it was a ripper of a game!!

With a few team mates missing, Drummoyne was split into two teams as opposed to the usual three. Coach Carolyn prepped the boys with some last minute tactics. The field was unexpectedly larger than what our boys were familiar with, but they were able to quickly adapt and relied heavily on team plays.

The goals were aplenty for both sides. Our team was superb in defence and aggressive in attack.

Highlights for each player:

Charlotte (50) : Instrumental in blocking while playing in the backs. She prevented 2 goals, forcing them to behinds.

Dylan (51): Strong in the centre, winning every ball contest, allowing his other centres to scoop up the ball.

Fletcher (62): Magnificent in team play. Quick hand passes to his forwards allowed them plenty of goals.

Hugh (80): Supported his forwards and was selfless, always passing or kicking to someone in a better position for a chance to score a goal.

Isaac M (25): Tough around the ruck and strong, winning most of his one to one contests.

Jack CA (37): Took a sensational mark, and disposed of it so quickly to his forward for a Drummoyne goal.

Jeremy (48): Speed and agility allowed him to outrun his opponents and kick downfield to his forwards, resulting in 4 goals.

Ned (95): Nimble and accurate making him the most prolific goal scorer of the game.

Sophia (58): Dominant in the centre, forcing the ball into our territory.

Baxter (42): Kicked a powerful 20 metre kick resulting in a goal and clearing the fence.

Bryce (90): Not surprisingly, was Man of the Match for his determination and stamina with every ball contest. He was accurate in disposing of the ball at every opportunity to another team player.

Isaac O (32): Brilliant in the first quarter in the forward position. Read the game well and kicked with precision for 2 goals.

A special thank you to coach Carolyn for her guidance and encouraging words throughout the game.

Under 7 Teal: Round 10

U7 Teal v Western Suburbs

Round 10

Though the sun was out, it was a very cold day when Drummoyne took on the Western Suburbs Mapgies at Five Dock Park. The Power showed their professionalism by warming up as a team. Circle work, handpassing drills, the kids looked focused, and you could tell they were there to win.

It was a tough start to the game, with the Magpies coming out fast. Koji was strong in defence, clearing the ball out on numerous occasions. Hayden played as a roaming centre, and provided a constant link to the forwards. Our forward line was on fire. Ned kicking three goals for the term, and Fletcher showing why second efforts are so important. After having a shot for goal smothered, he showed poise to gather his own ball, and convert with a booming left foot on his second attempt. Highlight of the term started from the backline, where it flowed from Dylan to Hayden to Ned for a goal, showing the fans a passage of play we could be seeing for years to come.

The Magpies came out aggressive in the second term, and if not for Isaac, our rock in defence, they could of run away with the game. Stopping the ball, and feeding to Ned and Fletcher to run out of defence. Charlotte, playing in the centre, may have found her ideal position, as she did not lose a hit out for the entire term. Highlights of the term were Hayden stepping between two Magpie players to kick the early breakthrough goal, and Sophia’s long run from the back line. Tucking the ball under her arm and daring the Magpie players to try and stop her.

The third term got under way with a nice early passage of play, with Dylan getting the ball to Koji, resulting in an early goal. Along with Charlotte, the three provided a powerful three pronged attack for the entire term. Isaac was strong in the middle, and Haydens long run from defence near the siren capped off a great game.

It was a fantastic team performance, with a number of players playing really well. The hard training everyone is doing is really starting to pay off. Best on ground could of gone to any number of players, but for her tireless work all day, and her constant pressure on the opposition, the award was given to Sophia.

Great game Sophia, and great game Drummoyne Power!
