Cockburn 2018 Winter AFL 9's Season

Friday, September 21, 2018 - 10:57 AM

The AFL 9's Winter Cockburn season has officially come to an end with 6 teams competing throughout the season. A big thank you to the AFL 9's teams; The Hotdogs, South Metro Stallions, Slippery Gypsies, EFF All's, I Dream of Heeney and Goodfooty Energies for their inventive team names and fantastic camaraderie throughout the competition. 
The Grand Final was played between the Hotdogs and South Metro Stallions. The Hotdogs flew out of the gates at 100kms an hour kicking 8 goals to 2 in the first half. The South Metro Stallions put up a valiant effort in the second half but the 8 goal first half was too much to come back from; with the Hotdogs running out 90 to 47 winners over the South Metro Stallions. 
A considerable mention goes out to the South Metro Stallions who have been in 4 consecutive grand finals (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter).

The South Fremantle District is absolutely delighted to share the news that South Fremantle Competition Director MARK BROOKES has won the 2018 Sunday Times WA Football Volunteer of the Year award. Mark was recognised at last night’s Sandover Medal, with West Coast Eagles coach Adam Simpson presenting him with his award. Mark was selected out of the 17 State finalists, who were chosen from over 1,200 nominations amongst the more than 40,000 volunteers in WA football. He has won a trip for two to the 2018 AFL Grand Final, where he will (hopefully!) see his beloved West Coast Eagles play off for the 2018 premiership. Congratulations Mark! Read more here:

July Holiday Challenge

Friday, July 13, 2018 - 9:07 AM

On Monday the 2nd of July the South Fremantle District held the annual holiday clinic but with a twist. Instead of a basic clinic with normal football drills, the activities were then turned into exciting fun and football related challenges. 113 Boys and girls from years 1 to 8 embraced the horrendous weather conditions to complete all the challenges to be named the July School Holiday Challenge Champion.

There were 11 different activities set up, all testing different aspects of your football knowledge/skill with some fun fitness activities. 
Activities list: Blindfold Goal Kicking, Longest Bomb, Footy Keepy up, Footy Darts, Marking Mayhem, Boundary Bombardment, Dunstall Dribble, AFL Skills Challenge, Boxing Bonanza, Gladiator Course and Water Slide Goal Kick (Unfortunately it was not able to be set up due to the weather). 

To help out in running the day we had a handful of West Coast Eagles players attend with the likes of Shannon Hurn, Luke Shuey, Jack Redden, Dom Sheed, Will Schofield, Liam Duggan and more. Even though it was pooring rain and blistering winds the Eagles players endured it all to have fun with their supporters and future football stars.
