Trial Round against Shore
This weekend is our first trial game against Shore with the Opens, Year 10 and 7s playing at Northbridge ovals and Year 8 and 9 playing at Queens Park. With this being our first round for most players it is important that each student is representing Waverley with pride. This means wearing the correct playing uniform with the Waverley jersey, shorts and socks and wearing the Waverley tracksuit to the game if it is cold. As this is a trial round players are still able to move teams if they play well. Players are also expected to be at their venue 30 minutes prior to their game for an adequate warm up. Good luck to all teams playing this weekend in this fixture.
Training in Week 11
Due to the Parent/Teacher interviews on Monday, there will be no training for Year 7, 8 and 9 on Monday 9 April. There will also be no training on Thursday afternoon for Year 10 and Opens. Players are expected to attend training on Tuesday and Wednesday to finalise selections for teams, as CAS competition will start first week back next term.
Football Development Program
Throughout the 2018 season, Waverley College Football will be holding a development program open to all players in Years 5 – 10. The training is designed to help every player reach their potential and improve on their football skills.
The development program will be held at Waverley Oval Synthetic field every Friday morning of Term 2 (except the Founder’s Day Holiday on 8 June) and weeks 1-3 of Term 3, from 7.15am – 8:15am. The sessions will be $220 for the full program and needs to be booked by the end of term 1 to organise the coaching staff.
