Pre-Season Training is back for all senior teams with great numbers in attendance at Boss James Reserve. We welcome all new and existing players as we prepare for the 2018 VAFA season.
Over 50 men and almost 20 women turned up despite the wet conditions and they looked great in the new Rovers training singlets. Plenty of familiar faces as well as 10 new or returning players to the club. Great feeling and plenty of excitement around the club.
Training will continue each Monday and Wednesday at Boss James Reserve for all teams unless otherwise advised. The men commence at 6pm with the women later at 6:30pm. A reminder that no footy boots are allowed at this time of year so please wear runners.
Prior to Christmas, training got underway in mid-November with good numbers in attendance. As always, we encourage everyone to get along to help make 2018 a successful season and we welcome all new and existing players to the club.
In 2018, the club plans to field eight teams in the VAFA: Seniors, Reserves, Thirds, Under 19 One’s & Two’s and Women’s Seniors & Reserves.
Two practice matches have been locked in with the Rovers taking on SFNL sides St Pauls on March 17 and Mordialloc on March 24. Venues for both games are TBC.
Player registrations are now open for the 2018 season while player clearances open on February 1. For all the details and to register online now – visit the registrations page.
