West Perth Auskick Gala Day Wrap!

Friday, August 24, 2018 - 1:29 PM

Sunday the 12th Of August saw West Perth’s Auskick Gala Day held in glorious conditions at MacDonald Park, with over 800 kids from 79 teams take part in the annual event. Level 1 to Level 3 Auskick teams from local district centres took part in the opportunity to play fixtured games against each other, all for the fun of it and to enjoy the experience of the Gala Day. The Gala Day was also host to a number of StarKick games for teams including Quinns JFC, Joondalup Kinross JFC, Coolbinnia JFC and East Fremantle JFC. Starkick provides the opportunity for boys and girls aged between between 5 and 12, who by circumstance or choice are unable to join into the clubs existing football programs and who may need extra support or time to achieve their goals.

The sunny conditions were perfect for football and as games got under way at 8:30am, the BBQ was fired up and the day got rolling. West Perth Football Club senior players were in attendance and umpired across all 12 ovals across the day, providing that extra level of excitement for the kids. The West Perth Football Club presence extended to a merchandise station where the kids were able to grab a new jersey, jacket, flag or scarf, or a team poster to gather their local heroes signatures.

The day was made possible thanks to the efforts from all club volunteers, the District JCC, District Staff and of course, all the kids. A big thank you is also extended to Whitfords JFC for hosting the Gala Day at their home ground and for their efforts in marking the grounds and providing numerous equipment pieces.

Congratulations to all teams that participated, we hope you enjoyed the day and good luck with your end of season Auskick commitments.
