Update of South West Football Academy Trials:
The next trial date will be Wednesday the 21st January at 5 30pm in Hamilton at Pedrina Park located on North Boundary Road.
Some players may also start receiving notifications of acceptance into the South West Football Academy program and or the South West Football Associations Representative Squad(s). This in no way is a reflection of other players performances and is done so in a fair manner. Representative Squads must be selected quickly as training for Boys FC and Girls FC is to start as soon as possible. While some players trialling for The South West Football Academy have already exceeded their trial criteria. All players regardless of early acceptance are required to trial twice.
More information can be found on their Facebook page here.
This weekends trial venue has been confirmed as The Warrnambool Hockey Club located on Cramer Street behind The Warrnambool Croquet Club.
The entrance can be found opposite “The Isles General Store” on Cramer Street
between The Warrnambool Croquet Club and the L.P Wenborn Oval located at Warrnambool College.
See you all at 2pm with registrations starting at 1 30pm
Paperwork which needs to be completed and handed in on the day:
This year the Country Championships were held in Ballarat from 28th to 30th of June. Hamilton sent along 7 players who played alongside the Warrnambool and Corangamite boys. 5 in Under 15 and 2 in under 12.
The weather was miserable, but spirits were high and the boys certainly gave it their all! Dylan was the only scorer out of the Hamilton kids and it was certainly a brilliant goal!
There was lots of stiff competition at the tournament and it was great to meet other teams from across Victoria.
Henry and Callum played in goals and stopped quite a few shots while Dylan and Jack played wing, Nathan played centre back and centre forward while Aiden played centre back and half back. Will played right back and did a brilliant job earning captain on the 2nd day of play.
It was wonderful seeing a sea of red Hamilton jackets down in Ballarat, we were certainly dryer than everyone else and it was so much easier to find anyone from Hamilton! It was also great to have the support of our President who came down to watch and show her support! A huge thanks to everyone who participated in the weekend and all the weeks training leading up to the tournament, it was fantastic!
