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.

Funding promise for St Luke’s Oval

JUNIOR AFL CLUBS WELCOME ST LUKE’S OVAL FUNDING PROMISE

Junior AFL clubs say a promised $1.4m funding boost – to continue the redevelopment of St Luke’s Oval in Concord – will help them meet increasing demand for greenspace in part boosted by strong growth in youth girls AFL.

The clubs – Drummoyne Power, Concord Giants and the Canada Bay Cannons – have welcomed the funding pledge, announced by federal Labor candidate for Reid, Sam Crosby, and have called on the federal Liberal Party, and candidate Fiona Martin, to match the commitment.

The AFL clubs that share St Luke’s Oval have no political position but rather want to work with all levels of government across the political spectrum to finish the refurbishment of, and improvements to, St Luke’s Oval.

The City of Canada Bay has budgeted an additional $660,000 for the project in 2020/21, AFL NSW/ACT has previously promised funds of just over $200,000 and the State Government has contributed $230,000.

The clubs are calling on New South Wales Minister for Sport John Sidoti to continue backing the project and support the clubs’ application for $1m grant from the next round of Great Sydney Sports Facility funding.

“There is enormous pressure on greenspace, in part due to the number of girls taking up footy for the first time now that pathways to AFL Women’s have opened,” said Milan Serovich, the President of Drummoyne Power/Canada Bay Cannons.

“In 2015, the Cannons fielded five youth teams – all of them boys. Today we have 14 Cannons teams – five of them are girls only teams. Our clubs are bursting at the seams.”

While there have been some works to improve the facility, Concord Giants President Jamie Reeves said more needs to be done to ensure the AFL precinct is capable of hosting all games and training from U5 through to youth and youth girls, in one convenient location.

“It is particularly important to upgrade the playing surface,” he said, with the club favouring a durable grass/hybrid grass surface.

Another important aspect of the upgrade is new change room facilities. “At the moment, when we have both girls and boys playing, we are seeing teams – particularly girls’ teams – forced to use second rate toilet facilities to change,” Jamie said.

Under 11 Teal: Match Report Round 8

On a cold, blustery Saturday afternoon at Drummoyne Oval, Under 11 Teal took on the Glebe Greyhounds. The Greyhounds are sitting on top of the ladder, and they gave our boys a bit of a touch up in the first game on the season. Much has changed from the season opener as the Teal boys have improved every game since then.

A tense first quarter saw the boys go the break trailing by a single point as both teams could only manage a goal each, as defence was even across the ground. Well done to Sam J who kicked our first goal, taking a strong mark in front of goal, and going back and slotting it through.

A tight second quarter saw Teal go to the main break with a lead by a point after kicking a couple of points. Unfortunately we couldn’t capitalise kicking with the wind. Callum and Albie were working hard trying to get the ball forward.

The Greyhounds kicked 2 goals to our single major, as the tense scrappy game continued in the third quarter. An unfortunate clash saw Ethan W and Callum needing a break as some ice was found. Good on both boys for getting back on the field and getting amongst it again. Some good lead up work from Tom C and Rafferty delivered a nice kick to Phinn, who put our only goal through. We went to the break 5 points behind the Greyhounds. Ethan D was having a big influence on the game, with one of his best games so far.

Unfortunately it looked like we were running out of steam in the last quarter as the Greyhounds posted a couple of goals to set up a handy lead. Declan capped off a good game with a nice goal to go with his strong defence.

The final score was 33/52 to the greyhounds, but the Teal boys should take some real positives out of the game, as we put a much better team effort than the first meeting.

Next weekend is a bye so enjoy your weekend off.
