South Fremantle July School Holiday Clinic

Wednesday, July 5, 2017 - 1:47 PM

The South Fremantle Football District held their annual July School Holiday Clinic on Monday the 3rd of July at Fremantle Community Bank Oval. The participants had the pleasure of West Coast Eagle Players - Andrew Gaff, Brad Sheppard, Francis Watson, Elliot Yeo, Chris Masten, Jake Waterman and Fraser McInnes assisting in the days activities. The boys assisted a handful of South Fremantle Colts players in running games and activities such as, football volleyball, football baseball and of course small scaled games. 

 

         

 

 

 

 

  

Not every participant supported the West Coast Eagles, but that didn't stop them. Multiple kids wearing different team guernseys still wanted the players signatures even though they weren't from their team. All of the participants got to take home a signed poster and the opportunity to get photos with the players. The kids also got to take home their own brand new South Fremantle District football. 

 

Cockburn Autumn AFL 9's Competition

Tuesday, July 4, 2017 - 11:48 AM

Over the last ten weeks, four teams have played at Anning Park in South Lake for the Autumn AFL 9's Competition. Monday the 3rd of July was the last week of the competition with The Slippery Gypsies and Farmer wants a Fyfe fighting off for the title of Cockburn AFL 9's Autumn Champions; on the other field was the South Metro Stallions and the Kumas fighting it out for third and fourth. 

The South Metro Stallions in their debut season had a rough season but always came back each week stronger and more confident. Unfortunately, they went 0-9 into the last week of the competition, but all their hard work paid off when they were able to beat the Kumas in a thrilling match. The South Metro Stallions kicked 10.6 - 66 to the Kumas 10.5 - 65. 

The main match of the night was between the Slippery Gypsies and Farmer Wants a Fyfe. The Slippery Gypsies as well in their first season went into the game as the favourites with a convincing record of 8-1 approaching the final game, with their only loss being against Farmer Wants a Fyfe in their last meeting. At half time of the Championship match, the Slippery Gypsies were in the lead by a few goals. The game wasn't over yet as throughout the year it was evident that the Slippery Gypsies would get off to a flying start then slowdown in the last half where the Farmer Wants a Fyfe boys were the opposite as they would finish strong rather than starting off strong. This match was no different as Farmer Wants a Fyfe made a convincing comeback in the last half but unfortunately it was not enough as Slippery Gypsies were able to hold off with the final score being 7.6 - 48 to Farmer Wants a Fyfe 4.2 - 26. 

It was a fantastic way to finish the Autumn Season with two great contests. The next AFL 9's season will begin on the 17th of July at Anning Park. Is anyone going to knock off the reigning champions in the Slippery Gypsies? Stay tuned until next season to find out!

CBC Leading The Way In Diversity

Thursday, February 9, 2017 - 3:04 PM

In 2016 Northlake Senior Campus’s Intensive English Centre (ICE) took part in a 6 week Welcome to AFL program run by the WAFC. 17 boys were involved in the program and came from a range of different backgrounds including Myanmar, Zimbabwe and Sudan. 

Following the success of the program last year, 6 of the boys aged between 17- 21, showed a keen interest to join a local community AFL club in season 2017.

CBC President Brad Stirling was very excited to hear about these boys and along with WAFC met with the school to make the transition from school programs to club football as easy as possible for the boys. He knew this was a great opportunity to add new diverse players to the club.

Paul and his coaches hosted the first session last night at Moris Buzzacott Reserve (CBC Home ground). They all finished the evening with a smile on their faces and an excited thought of what the future can hold for them.

The NightFields sessions are now also run as multi-sport activities through partnerships with the WACA, Netball WA, Touch Rugby, Football West and Basketball WA.
