Message From The President

Welcome back to WJFC for 2018.

What a fantastic year 2017 was as the club went through some positive changes.

This year we will see our girls footy competition expand to more teams, ranging from year 3 to year 10.  So girls, if you’re thinking of giving footy a crack, or you know of any girls out there who may be keen to try footy out, let them know that they can contact the club via our website, email or Facebook page.

Once again our Auskick programme is in full swing and we are encouraging all Pre-Primary to Year 2 players to come down on a Saturday morning to have some healthy fun in a safe and educational environment.  This year our Auskick teams are being supported by the Whitford Warriors Amateur Football Club, our senior club, and will see our little ones given the opportunity to play a game of little league during half time at the Warriors’ home league game.  If you haven’t seen this before, it is gold!!

Our canteen and merchandise facilities will be up and running so you can show your colours whilst you enjoy one of our renowned bacon and egg burgers, sausage sizzles or hamburgers.  We do chips too and the Ladies are working on some new items!

The move into the new clubrooms last year saw WJFC really come together; and with Friday night footy, open rules finals games and the pomp and fanfare of our flags and banners, it really is a carnival atmosphere here at WJFC.

Another big thank you to all of our sponsors from last year and those that have generously given their support to our great club.  We are proud to support our sponsors as they tirelessly give to the kids at our club and help to make our community a more collegiate and close knit environment.  We welcome back all sponsors and encourage anyone who may be considering becoming a sponsor to contact our Vice President, Barry Lloyd so he can assist you with the process. 

Once again, our club would not able to provide the amenity and facilities for our kids if we didn’t have the ongoing support of our volunteers.  We are always in need of volunteers, whether it be to wave a flag when a goal is kicked, coach or manage a team or lend a hand in the canteen, our volunteers, the parents and friends of this club, are the people who make us who we are.  So if you're interested in volunteering please let us know and we can help you to meet some of our great people and give back to our community in a positive and friendly environment.

Finally, and most importantly, our players; all of our kids who pull on a pair of boots, run around getting fit, meeting new friends and most importantly, having a bucket load of fun, it’s now time to register again.  Get in early so you don’t miss out on your team and mates from past years, or if you’re new to the club, let us know a bit about you so we can make your experience here as fun and positive as possible.

Registration details are available on our web page.

Let’s make 2018 the best year of all – 

If you are a Wildcat sing along with me...

See you soon,


Phil O’Donnell
President WJFC
