The 2018 Junior Committee comprises over 20 dedicated volunteers that work together to field our 23 teams each week. The community spirit and selfless effort of our people are the keys to the smooth working of our Junior Committee. We know that the stars of the club are our kids, the coaches and parents are a key to guiding them and we want to give all our people the best community footy experience possible. Our key Committee contacts are below.
