Ju­nior coaches ap­pointed at Euroa Foot­ball Net­ball Club

Euroa Gazette - - GAZETTE SPORTS -

WITH foot­ball sea­son not long draw­ing to a close, it’ll be back be­fore we know it, with Euroa Ju­nior Foot­ball Net­ball Club mak­ing sure they’re pre­pared with their ap­point­ment of four new ju­nior footy coaches for 2019.

Pres­i­dent An­drew Hill made the an­nounce­ment last week, con­firm­ing the ap­point­ment of Jon Reid for coach of un­der 12s, An­drew Hamil­ton for as­sis­tant coach of un­der 14s, Ja­son Wil­son for coach of un­der 14s and Scott Wat­son for coach of un­der 16s.

The club are still on the hunt for an un­der 10 foot­ball coach, along with un­der 11, un­der 13 and un­der 15 net­ball coaches and are wel­com­ing any­one to put their hand up.

They are also still look­ing for some­one to step up and coach their youth girls’ team, which has been a great achieve­ment for Euroa, hav­ing fe­males travel from as far as Jamieson to play in the side.

The ju­nior club did a power of work in get­ting the team up and run­ning at Euroa, with pres­i­dent An­drew Hill say­ing they are su­per happy to sup­port any­one will­ing to take on the role.

All coaches at the club have un­der­gone or will un­dergo a spe­cific AFL train­ing course, which is com­pleted through AFL Goul­burn Mur­ray.

With 160 kids at the Ju­nior Foot­ball Net­ball Club, Mr Hill said it’s huge for not only the club but also the com­mu­nity to be able to con­tinue pro­vid­ing Sun­day sport for these kids.

“We usu­ally get around high 20s in the foot­ball teams and net­ball is al­ways su­per pop­u­lar for our ju­niors,” Mr Hill said.

“Sun­days are re­ally busy with five games of foot­ball it’s great to be able to do it.”

As­sis­tant coach of Un­der 14s, An­drew Hamil­ton is new to the coach­ing field, with this his first time putting his hand up to help out with a side.

“I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to be­ing a part of it and just learn­ing while keep­ing it fun and en­gag­ing for the kids,” Mr Hamil­ton said.

All of the coaches have kids play­ing in the side, and Jon Hill is no stranger to the game hav­ing coached 36 kids in last year’s Un­der 14 side.

Pres­i­dent of the se­nior Foot­ball Net­ball Club and un­der 16s coach Scott Wat­son said it’s a great op­por­tu­nity to be given to coach a side.

“It’s very much about par­tic­i­pa­tion and get­ting enough peo­ple to play in the side,” Mr Wat­son said.

If you want to be a part of the club, coach­ing any of the avail­able teams, all en­quiries can be made to An­drew Hill. EUROA JU­NIOR FOOT­BALL NET­BALL CLUB By GRACE EVANS
