Pre-season training, practice matches & jumper presentations

Now that Summer Squad sessions have finished, pre-season training turns to a team-based approach. Check out the schedule for training times & venues for each team – as always, check with your own team manager and coach for any variations to this schedule.

We’ve also organised a weekend of practice matches to get ready for the 2020 season, on Sat 28 and Sun 29 March. The practice matches are a fantastic opportunity for our teams to have a pre-season hit-out via some intra-club practice matches or against teams from other junior footy clubs. As part of the day, most teams will also welcome parents to the new season and conduct jumper presentations.

Await full details from your own coaches and team managers, however the indicative schedule for the two days is as below.
