The 2015 season saw the start of the first ever all-female junior teams being born at Booragoon Bulldogs Junior Football Club. With 23 registrations we proudly formed two teams to compete in the South Fremantle District competition in the Under 12 Junior Girl League.
What a great first season the Junior Girls BLUE team had! The girls competed with enthusiasm, determination and absolute respect for each other and the other teams competing in this competition against: Booragoon White, Riverton, Bibra Lake, Freo City Dockers and Hammond Park.
Our 10 week competition consisted of Tuesday training, Sunday morning Home and Away matches and half time Little-League matches at ATOM Stadium during one of the Senior WAFL matches and two of the WAFL Women’s League games. This gave the girls even more chances to bond and our two teams have become a very tight-knit group.
Some of the mighty Fremantle Dockers players came down to Karoonda for a training clinic, which the girls (and parents) thoroughly enjoyed.
To see friendships formed and constant support from stronger players to help the less experienced girls of the group improve each week was the highlight of the season for the coaching/management staff and the parents.
Thank you to all the parents who assisted in helping the games run smoothly. A special thanks goes to Lee Lawrence (White Manager) and Leigh Wardell-Johnson (Coach Co-ordinator) for your knowledge and support that you gave us all.
Girls: It has been wonderful to get to know you all. Each week your smiles on the field and cheers of delight were what we all came to watch and enjoy. Your skills have improved and we cannot wait to see you next season, with some more of your friends, so that Booragoon Bulldog Girls can continue to grow! Congratulations on a great first season.
