Northern Suns win CBH Group Colts Championship

Thursday, July 16, 2015 - 12:22 PM

In 2015 the CBH Group Colts returned to Mandurah for another year of fast paced action. Reigning champions Peel came into the championships under a cloud after not performing to their usual high standard at the Great Southern Colts Carnival earlier in month, but the other teams knew better than to write them off.
The South West are always a strong side while the young Great Southern can also throw up a few surprises, but it was the two amalgamated sides, Northern Suns and Regional Districts, which started the strongest.

Talk to a Mate Men's Well-being Round

Monday, June 8, 2015 - 12:33 PM

The WACFL and its network of 25 Country Leagues is talking men’s health this weekend as it teams up with the Regional Mens Health Initiative for a state wide round of country football.

Regional Mens Health Initiative Senior Community Educator/ Executive Officer Owen Catto said the round was a great way of getting blokes talking about a range of health and wellbeing issues, “we know it’s natural for men to want to keep things to themselves, but were trying to begin the process of men speaking about their health and wellbeing and also looking out for each other”

The word health is broad one and covers a gamut of topics including mental, sexual, physical and social/spiritual wellbeing issues.  Regional Men’s Health initiative encourages players to consider the negative effects of drugs and alcohol over the weekend and recommends seeking medical help when required.

The Partnership between the Royalties for Regions initiative and football is in its second year and WACFL Executive Member Milton Milloy was confident the messages were getting through “we know there are a number of health messages that affect our community and people in the country, we’re encouraging our network to begin to think of their health as a team rather than as individuals- we know our players will look after their mates on the field, so we’re encouraging them to do that off the field as well.”

As part of the round, all matches will use a ‘Talk to a Mate Mens Wellbeing” match ball and every player will be given a fridge magnet which hopefully goes straight to the pool room.

Coaching Accreditation

Tuesday, June 2, 2015 - 11:52 AM


The quality of coaching is one of the primary reasons why players either continue to participate in Australian Football or give up the game. The AFL together with the State/Territory football organisations recognise that at all levels of the AFL game, the coach has significantly more influence upon players than any other official or person connected with football, hence the requirement for all coaches to be accredited at an appropriate level.
