Local kids interested in playing AFL this year are being urged to sign up with the Brunswick Valley Bulldogs Junior AFL Club as soon as possible to avoid missing out on the start of the season.

Club president Matt Kane said the club welcomed all boys and girls aged 5 to 14, but that registration needed to be completed as soon as possible.

‘Junior AFL is a great game – kids really love it and they build massive confidence,’ Mr Kane said.

‘We’re really close to being able to field a full compliment of teams, and we really want to encourage people to sign up now so they don’t miss out before the season starts.’

The club is particularly encouraging girls aged 11 to 13 and boys aged 10 to 12 to register.

‘The AFL has done a lot to encourage girls and to empower them and we’re really close to having an under 13s girls team which would be amazing because we want to see them succeed.’

To sign up call Matt Kane on 0426 279 100 or email brunswickvalleyju[email protected]
