Auskick 2014

This year Auskick numbers swelled to over 165 players, and it was great to see the big crowds of families at Karoonda oval every Sunday morning. Some of the highlights for the year were having 56 of our young Auskickers represent the Bulldogs at the Fremantle v North Melbourne Anzac Day match. The kids got to play a game at half time at Patersons Stadium as well as watch their heroes in action. The Booragoon Auskick carnival was another huge success with eight clubs participating and over 1500 players and spectators up at our club on the Friday night. It was a huge night with everyone enjoying watching the kids play under lights.

This year Josh Farrant was chosen to represent the Bulldogs as the East Fremantle Sharks mascot for the day, running out with the East Fremantle team and getting to warm up with them before a cracker game against Swan Districts.

Special thanks to all the coaches this year, who made training such a fun experience for the kids. It is great to watch the coaches in action and to see the kids developing their skills under the coaches guidance. A special mention to all the parents who helped out with the coaching drills every week, it certainly helped take the pressure off the coaches. And to the team managers thank you for organising the teams behind the scenes.

To all the volunteers, whether you were helping on the field or in the canteen, washing jumpers or on orange duty, a club is only ever as good as the people who spend the time to make it great. I think we have a fantastic club, so a big well done and thank you for making 2014 an impressive year.

And lastly, and most importantly, thank you to the kids, it has been a pleasure to watch you all giving it a go with much enthusiasm and developing not only your mad footy skills, but learning the finer details of teamwork, determination and patience.

I look forward to seeing you all again, bigger and better in 2015.
