Booragoon JFC Recognised at the WAFL Grand Final

We’ve received some feedback from the WA Football Commission on our clubs performance at the WAFL Grand Final.  See below for a couple of e-mails from WAFC Junior Football Development. Well done to everyone involved on the day, and during the 2012 season.

Hi Scott,
See email below from Troy at the WAFC.

Thank you for your help and participation yesterday which was first class. The below email is even more proof that Booragoon JFC is a Champion Club and the efforts of the committee/players/coaches/parents should be congratulated.

Unfortunately the WAFL boys couldn’t cap off a great day for East Fremantle but I hope the club enjoyed the experience and have some fond memories of the 2012 WAFL GF.

Importance: HighHi Daren

I just wanted to take this opportunity to recognise the contribution that the Booragoon JFC played in the 2012 WAFL Grand Final.The players that participated in the Little League (and all the other associated activities on the day) were fantastic and their behaviour and attitude all day long was exceptional. In what can be quite a long and tiring day, their involvement in pre-game activities, half time game, and the ¾ time presentation was second to none and certainly hands down one of the best groups that we have had involved in the Grand Final activities in my time in the role. It was just a shame the boys didn’t have the opportunity to present the Premiership Medals to the East Fremantle players in the Post Game ceremony.

Could you also pass on my congratulations to the coaching staff and parents of the team. They were also absolutely fantastic in everything that was required of them on the day, and their involvement really made a positive impact on all of our game day requirements.

The Booragoon JFC Little League team were also recognised by a number of the WAFC Executive post-game and it was their belief that they really added to the spectacle of the WAFL Grand Final.

The team (and coaching staff) represented their Junior Football Club and the East Fremantle District at the highest level and should be very proud of their involvement.

I hope that the Booragoon players look back in years to come and remember the important role that they played in the 2012 WAFL Grand Final.

Thanks again

Champion Club for 2012!!

The Booragoon Junior Football Club has been awarded the West Australian Football Commission East Fremantle District CHAMPION CLUB for 2012.

This was awarded to the club with the most positive game-day environment, great support of umpires, and development of coaches.  Well done to all players, coaches, team managers, volunteers, and parents for creating such a great place to play football.

Year 5s End of Season Carnival 2012

A combined side of 23 players from Year 5 Whites and Year 5 Blues competed against 7 other sides in the Year 5 Carnival hosted by Canning Vale at Clifton Park. The side was masterfully coached by Mark Downey with assistance from Ian Minotti, Paul Ovens, Marcus Kuller and Lindsay Marley.

With every team in the competition playing 6 games each, the Bulldogs with 4 wins and 1 loss, but with a very good percentage went into the last game needing a win to finish equal points with Bullcreek. Opening up a 4 goal lead in the first half while kicking with a strong breeze gave us a handy lead and with 2 sealers against the wind early in the second half the game was placed beyond doubt and the Bulldogs ended up winning the game and the overall Carnival on superior percentage.
