2014 Auskick Super 8s


We have again had the pleasure of coaching the year 3 s for the 2014 season.

Thankfully after a number of years working on our skills and playing scratch matches, the boys finally had an opportunity to play against opposition teams from the East Fremantle district.

With 44 boys enrolled, we split the large group into 3 teams, being Booragoon 1 coached by Mick Strahan and Pete Collins, Booragoon 2 coached by Rob Butler and Mike North and Booragoon 3 coached by Dave Glass and Jeremy Skepper.

Over the course of the year we played games against opposition teams home and away, and on weekends where we were not fixtured to play games, we held training sessions and scratch matches amongst ourselves. We also introduced weekly training sessions on a Wednesday night which ran for an hour and gave us quality time to work on all our footy skills.

The boys have been an absolute pleasure to coach and it s fair to say comparing our first game to how we finished in the Willetton carnival, their improvement has been outstanding.

The attributes which stood out this year were teamwork, competitiveness, mateship and skill improvement. Overall we had 15 new players, who have slotted in extremely well, we are hoping the group stay together throughout their junior years and enjoy the rewards of playing a fantastic team sport.

To all the parents a huge thank you for bringing the kids down each training session and game day, washing the jumpers, providing oranges, goal umpiring, timekeeping, and helping out at training.

Thanks to Ali Wallace for providing mouthguards to players and also James Allison for providing goal umpire flags, these contributions were appreciated.

Special thanks to Denise Bardill and Wendy Clynk who both volunteered as managers and assisted throughout the year with rosters, correspondence and overall assistance .very much appreciated.

Overall it has been a very successful season and also very rewarding as a coach to see the player s progress.

We hope to see you all again next year. Go the Bulldogs!!!
Mick Strahan, Rob Butler and Dave Glass (Coaches)
