FOX FOOTY CLUB REWARDS media release:-
The Beaconsfield JFC is celebrating after winning an exclusive coaching experience with the North Melbourne Football Club thanks to the FOX FOOTY Club Rewards program.
The Eagles, who house teams in the South East Junior Football League, yesterday visited North Melbourne’s training facilities for an experience hosted by the Kangaroos’ head coach, Brad Scott, and his coaching staff.The experience saw two Beaconsfield club members treated to a coaching seminar and tour of their Arden St Oval facilities, led by senior coach, Brad Scott, and senior assistant coach, Darren Crocker.
The FOX FOOTY Club Rewards program is an initiative driven by Foxtel to support grassroots sport and recognise football clubs and the benefit they deliver to their local community.
The junior club partakes in various events such as Relay For Life, this year raising almost $10,000, while members of the club’s own Leadership Academy have participating in local ANZAC services and assisting some elderly residents with their gardens.
The club also encourages its players to work closely with our local Auskick and regularly assist the Auskick coaches at their weeknight sessions.
National Ambassador for the program and former St Kilda Football Club captain, Danny Frawley, said the program, in its second year of running, continues to reward local clubs with opportunities to learn from the AFL’s elite personnel.
“Local sporting clubs are at the heart of local communities all over Australia and it is fantastic to have organisation such as Foxtel continue to invest at the level where it all begins for so many our AFL players. Hopefully the experiences they undertake as part of the program ensures they continue to grow and develop as a football club and as a strong hold presence in their local community,” Frawley said.
Beaconsfield Junior Football Club representative, Jarrett Drake, said the club was delighted to be recognised by the FOX FOOTY Club Rewards program for carrying out their on-field and off-field visions as a club.
“Our club is ecstatic to have been recognised by the FOX FOOTY Club Rewards program and we’re looking forward to the whole experience with the Kangaroos. For us, it is testimony to a number of hard-working club members who strive to create a community focused and inclusive club,” Drake said.
The FOX FOOTY Club Rewards program will also reward 40 local football clubs with the chance to hear from an elite AFL club’s coaching panel in Adelaide and Sydney. Furthermore, another 17 clubs will also have the opportunity to get a sense of the professionalism of an AFL club when they visit an AFL club’s training facilities or experience an AFL club’s inner sanctum on match day. Foxtel Director of Sports Marketing, Chantal Walker, said Foxtel was pleased to continue a partnership with the AFL Coaches Association and FOX FOOTY to deliver to the grassroots clubs for their ongoing work to contribute to their community.
“It is important to recognise the football clubs that put activities or programs in place to say thank you to their local communities who support them at a grassroots level. We hope that these experiences will provide the clubs with a significant benefit to continue to their great work,” said Walker.
