Congratulations to Lake Macquarie’s Isaac Pearson, who has received an opportunity of a lifetime.
Live the Dream is a once in a lifetime opportunity for 16 young Australians to become immersed in the culture of the Fremantle Dockers Football Club and “live the life” of an AFL player for five days.
The Fremantle Dockers, in conjunction with Decmil, are thrilled to be able to offer this program to the community. Live the Dream offers participants a rare opportunity to develop skills and behaviours which can deliver long-term benefits to the individual and their local community.
We wish Isaac all the best, and can’t wait to hear all about his experiences.
For all players in the U/14 and U/16 AFL Development Program (as part of our rep program), can you please bring your $50 program fee to training at the Uni of Newcastle this coming Monday, and give to Simon Smyth. Simon will also have training gear for those boys recently inducted in to this program.
The Black Diamond AFL in conjunction with AFL NSW/ACT is giving females the opportunity to come and try AFL.
Female AFL is a growing sport nationally, and locally, we are very passionate about females playing our great game.
In 2014, 10 Youth Girls teams will play in the Newcastle and Central Coast junior competitions, whilst Gosford Wildcats have a team participating in the AFL Sydney Women’s competition.
As a curtain raiser to the Black Diamond AFL vs AFL Sydney Under 23’s Representative Match at Newcastle No 1 Sportsground on 7 June 2014, a female football game will be played to allow local women the opportunity to try AFL.
No prior experience is required, just need to be over the age of 16 years and the passion to get out and have a go.
