The Carindale Cougars (Carindale District Junior Australian Football Club) received their training tops and got to hang out with Hogster yesterday in the lead-up to the season start.
Cougars President Alistar Moir announced the coaches and managers and thanked the volunteers and sponsors.
The club is based in the grounds of Belmont State School and the school’s Principal Anthony Palmer also attended the gathering.
With most coaching and managing roles filled, the Cougars are still seeking a coach for one of their ‘under 6’ teams and a manager for one of their ‘under 8’ teams. No experience is required with the club paying for coaching training. The club invites anyone able to assist to make contact as soon as possible.
The Cougars, formed in 1994, say their focus is on being a participation-based club with the mission to ensure each child receives a fair and equal opportunity to learn and develop football skills within a supportive environment.
In 2016 the Cougars will have two ‘under 6’ teams, two ‘under 8’ teams, one ‘under 9’ team and one ‘under 11’ team.
There is no ‘under 10’ team this year. Players in that age group are joining the ‘under 11’ team, helping to make it even stronger.
The Cougars are keen to get their game jerseys which are expected to presented to them in the week of the first game-day which is Saturday April 16th.
If you’re able to assist the club as a coach, manager or a general volunteer contact Club President Alistar Moir on firstname.lastname@example.org.
