FROM THE PRESIDENT
To all PBCJAFC players, parents, carers and supporters,
Welcome to all of our players, returning and new, who are joining us for the 2021 season!
After a unique 2020 season, we are very much looking forward to delivering a fantastic experience for all of our players and supporters this year.
Thank you to everyone who could attend our Season Launch, we hope you had fun and got to know a few more people who are involved in our club.
We have around 400 players this season as our club continues to grow. We welcome our Under 9 Girls to the AFL juniors competition for the first time. Our club is fielding two Under 9 Girls teams. As another sure sign of the strength of our club's junior footy, we also have five Under 8 sides. We hope every player has fun and that you will be with our club over the next few years of your junior footy journey.
We hope everyone looks out for all the events we have planned this year. We hope to be able to come together as a club on a number of occasions including some compulsory events for our players and plenty of fun for our members, parents, families and supporters.
As always, thank you to all of our sponsors, our club appreciates the ongoing support you provide to help so many local juniors enjoy a safe, fun and exciting footy experience.
We are sure you will agree our new training singlets, free to every registered player and achieved with the support of sponsors, look fantastic and show that everyone is a member of the Palmy Lions pride.
Welcome also to our new canteen convenor Helen this season - please come and say hi to Helen who will be working hard at our home game days.
And, finally, good luck to every player throughout the 2021 season.
