Register your 2-5 year old for Footy Fundamentals in 2017

Tuesday, January 31, 2017 - 10:27 AM

About Footy Fundamentals

Footy Fundamentals in the only WA pre-Auskick football program endorsed by the AFL and the WA Football Commission.

Launched in 2013 the program uses AFL football to build fundamental movement skills in children aged 2 years to 5 years.

Footy Fundamentals aims to prepare our kids for the future.

Footy Fundamentals is a carefully planned and structured toddler AFL program, which encourages your active toddlers to develop their fundamental movement skills in an AFL environment, using AFL equipment. 

Each week, toddlers will focus on one or a set of movement skills, and play fun team-work based games that incorporate these skills. 

Active parent involvement is required in all of our toddler AFL programs. 

New Curriculum in 2017

After four years Footy Fundamentals has had a major review with changes to locations and to the program curriculum. With the assistance of Fundamental Movement, Early Childhood Education and Football specialists a new and exciting curriculum will be launched in Term 1. 

Fundamental Movement Skills are patterns of movement that involve different body parts such as the legs, arms, trunk and head and include skills such as running, hopping, catching, throwing, striking and balancing. These skills are the foundation movements to more specialised, complex skills used in kids games, sports, dance and every day activities.

The new curriculum ensures that our participants are able to develop Fundamental Movement Skills critical to their development whilst maintaining our links to AFL Football. 

Our age groups

TODDLER KICKERS (2 yrs to 3 yrs)
'Toddler Kickers' is all about exposing toddlers to the shape of an AFL football, and using big AFL equipment to encourage active movement, and the development of fundamental movement skills. 

MINI KICKERS (3 yrs to 4 yrs)
'Mini Kickers' are at the age of starting to learn the art of kicking a football. They are put through a slightly more advanced course that uses different sized balls and equipment to further develop their fundamental movement skills, encourages listening skills, and introduces some basic teamwork skills.

KINDY KICKERS (4 yrs to 5 yrs)
The 'Kindy Kickers' stage enjoy advanced obstacle courses to challenge their fundamental movement skills, and participate in more teamwork games to encourage sportsmanship, sharing, working together and communication. They are introduced to majority of the skills needed for AFL, and practise them in fun skill-based activities and games. They even finish with a game of football in the last week of the Quarter to put all of their skills to practise.

WAFC Customer Satisfaction Survey

Friday, November 18, 2016 - 1:42 PM

The West Australian Football Commission (WAFC) is conducting a Customer Satisfaction Survey for the first time in 2016, allowing everyone involved in football to provide valuable feedback on their views, perceptions and importantly, levels of satisfaction of being involved in WA football.

The WAFC strives to deliver high-quality programs, competitions, governance and services to support all the players, volunteers, administrators, coaches, umpires and clubs engaged with WA football.

Please CLICK HERE to complete the survey.

The purpose of this survey is to seek feedback on the key issues and challenges for our game and also provide opportunities to identify where the WAFC can better support leagues, clubs, programs or competitions.

Football Clubs and all of those involved are the lifeblood of the game, providing participation opportunities for players, coaches and umpires. In addition, we know that Football clubs would not survive without the loyal support of a significant volunteer network that sustains our sport at grass roots level.

This is your chance to provide us with those views, which we will review and benchmark at the end of every season moving forward. The WAFC and its football stakeholders will use the feedback provided in the survey to review and develop improvement strategies for our game moving forward.

Your views are important to us as we set about ensuring West Australian Football continues to grow, is successful and meet the needs for all of those involved.

We look forward to your valuable feedback.

West Perth on new wheels

Tuesday, September 27, 2016 - 4:46 PM - by Justin Bianchini - Joondalup Times

A minibus destined for the scrap heap is now at the service of the West Perth Football Club.

Chief executive David Crute said the club was looking to upgrade its team property van and needed a vehicle for its community programs and to transport people between Joondalup train station and Arena Joondalup.

“We asked a few of our contacts to be on the lookout for something suitable,” he said.

“Brent Howard from Major Motors discovered an old unregistered Toyota Coaster at a State Government correctional services facility.

“It was well past its use-by date, it was full of rust, had dents all over and was filthy inside and out.

“At the same time, Moore MHR Ian Goodenough had alerted me to the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities funding program.”

Benefiting from the club’s bus include indigenous leadership program Djinda Falcons, Joondalup Women’s Football Club and junior clubs.

“Through the generosity of many of our sponsors and supporters, we were able to transform a vehicle destined for the scrap heap into virtually a brand-new vehicle,” Crute said.

“Now we have a bus, we’re looking for volunteer drivers.”

Drivers will require at least a LR (light rigid) licence.

Anyone interested, can call the club on 9300 3611.
