Palmyra JFC Awarded by the EFDC

In what was recently a great night for the Club, Palmyra JFC won two awards at the annual East Fremantle District Football Development Committee annual awards evening.
First up, Ryan Bacich was named joint winner of the EFDC Junior Coach of the Year Award. Ryan has coached for many years, always with a great ‘team first’ attitude and emphasis on participation. Ryan was a key organiser of the Year 6 trip to Melbourne and has given countless hours to helping his players grow their love of the game and get the best out of themselves. He is highly regarded by players, parents and peers and is a fine example to all. Well done Ryan!
In the final award of the night, and for the second time in recent years, the Palmyra Junior Football Club was named Junior Club of the Year by the EFDFDC. The Award recognises the welcoming environment we create for our players, umpires, parents and opposition alike; our contribution to the District and growth of the game; and the way our players conduct themselves during games. It is the result of the hard work of many people over many years who have created the positive culture of the Club that we continue to develop and enjoy.

Kicking Goals for WA Mental Health Week 2019

As you know, sports help to unite and strengthen our local communities. But while sports undoubtedly improve physical health, we need your help to tackle a big issue – and that’s mental health.

To mark WA Mental Health Week 2019, you’re invited to attend a screening of Collingwood: From The Inside Out on Wednesday October 9th 6pm-9pm at the East Fremantle Football Club.

The night will include:

  • Outside The Locker Room founder and former AFL player Jake Edwards, who will talk us through OTLR’s player welfare programs, and explain how your club can benefit from them. OTLR have worked with over 200 sports clubs and schools across Australia – so they know what they’re talking about!
  • Sports psychologist and director of Think Performance Psychology Jodii Maguire who will share her insights gained from working with West Coast Fever, the West Coast Eagles and the Wildcats (& other elite clubs, athletes and businesses).
  • Founder of the The Kai Eardley Fund Claire Eardley will speak about her son Kai and the Foundation she has established in honour of his memory. KEF funds the delivery of mental health and wellbeing workshops throughout Perth.
  • Tips on encouraging resilience and mental wellness at your club and more.
  • Supper is included and drinks will be available for purchase.

It’s free to come along (registration here is essential) but as we’ll be raising money for The Kai Eardley Foundation, we encourage you to donate via the same link.

We’d love you to come, and please feel free to spread the word and share this throughout your networks.

Hope to see you there!

Early registrations for 2020 open now – 2019 prices until end Nov

Dear all,

In 2019, the WAFC provided an opportunity for Junior Football Clubs to open registrations in early September as a way of continuing to grow Club Football participation. On the back of its success, the WAFC have opened 2020 registrations for all Metro and Regional Junior Football Clubs and Auskick Centres from Sunday 1st September 2019.

The link to this year’s registration form is as follows:

The benefits to PJFC of opening Junior Football registrations early include:

  • Registration fees are to be held at 2019 season levels for payment during the period 1 September 2019 to 30 November 2019 (sibling discounts of 15% for the second, third etc. child will also still apply). From 1 December 2019, the registration fees for each age group will increase by $10 per player.
  • The opportunity to register players while they are still engaged – losing contact with PJFC members could potentially result in them losing interest.
  • Our club will get an early indication of numbers for Team Nominations and to highlight potential target areas for recruitment (everyone can assist with the recruitment drive!).

Prizes will be awarded to the top performing Club during the Early Registration period, with the first 400 members to register for the 2020 season to receive giveaways.

Any new players registering to play Junior Football for the very first time will be able to register, however PJFC will be required to approve their pending registration. Any player new to PJFC who has come from another club will require a transfer and must wait for the National Transfer Period to open. The National Transfer Period is open between 1 to 30 November 2019 and 1 February to 30 June 2020.

If you have any queries regarding the early registration process, please contact me

Kind regards,

Simon Backhouse

Registrar – PJFC
