Like many parents at our Club, I've loved footy for more than 35 years, and there's no greater joy than passing on our love of this great sport to our children.
Whether you're new to the game or not, every week during the season at St. Ives, we see our boys and girls experience 'magic moments' when they discover skills and abilities they never thought they had. The first straight kick, the hand pass that lands exactly where it should, the bounce of a ball that returns to you, an overhead mark that lands squarely in your hands or, of course, the kick towards the goal that makes it through the big sticks.
AFL at St. Ives promises all this and much more as part of our culture of fun, fitness and skill development. Check out this 2-min video to find out more (paste URL into your browser): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PL0zKgfCVtA&t=8s
In 2020, we are working closely with the AFL and our dedicated Club Officials to bring footy to just short of 500 players in a safe and fun environment as we tackle the context and challenges of a global pandemic.
I have been extremely proud of our volunteers during this difficult period, and we look forward to bringing footy to hundreds of kids who have been bouncing off the walls at home for several months, and getting out into the winter fresh air for fun, footy and friendship.
If you are not already a member, we hope to welcome you and share the enjoyment and achievements of your son or daughter in our great game.
See you soon at Acron Oval and Go Saints!
