The Broulee Moruya Giants Aussie Rules Club is gearing up for its biggest season so far in the Sapphire Coast Australian Football League, entering teams in the U/11’s, U/13’s, U/16’s and Development Grade competitions, as well participating in an informal Intra 9’s (no scoring). After the next couple of weeks of recruiting they are hopeful of having enough players to continue their Women’s team as well. To grow to being a four, potentially five team club in just three years of competition is testimony to the fantastic culture the club promotes. Numbers have been good at training and the club is confident of successful seasons for all of its grades.
Australian Football is played with large teams, so the club is still on the lookout for new players to boost numbers across the board, but especially in the club’s newest team, the U/16’s, which promises to be playing in a tightly fought competition. Opposition teams in this grade will be fielded by Narooma, Bermagui/Bega, Pambula, and Merimbula. Anyone is welcome, experienced or not, and no one gets turned away from an Aussie Rules team because it’s full.
Any women interested in playing Aussie Rules, please make contact with the club ASAP – the team needs to nominate soon and numbers must be confirmed. Similarly, anyone interested in playing in the open age development grade is encouraged to touch base with the club.
The SCAFL is a competition marked by its stability and longevity. There is a strong culture and program of representative football and better junior players from the competition are afforded entry into the GWS Giants Academy program. Playing ‘The Great Australian Game’ up and down our beautiful far south coast (home games at picturesque Kyla Park in Tuross Heads) is a pretty fine way to spend Saturdays in autumn and winter – wouldn’t you agree?
