A TRAINING session with three current Hawthorn players is in the planning for Deloraine Junior Football Club (DJFC) during February (following Hawthorn NAB cup match, either Friday 20th, Sat 21st or Sun 22nd, date to be confirmed).

The day will be hosted by Deloraine Football Club, together with Beyond Blue and Rotary Deloraine at the Deloraine Football Club ground.

All junior players, Auskick participants, and junior aged football lovers, not currently registered, are invited to attend.

It will also provide the chance for young would be players to find out more about the Deloraine Junior Football Club.

Registrations are currently open online, ( cgi?client=1-3915-49546-0-0).

Registration payments can be made on the day and anyone new wanting to sign up, can do so.

Club uniforms will be available to order or purchase. President of Deloraine Junior Football Club, Michael Wood said this will be a great opportunity for young footballers to pick up some valuable tips and skill development practices from those with years of experience in the big league.

Children play football because it is fun, challenging and exciting.

Most kids love being part of a team.

Football teaches cooperation and team work, helps develop positive social skills and teaches respect for others. It helps build self-confidence, a positive self-image and self-worth.

It enables a child to improve upon and develop a broad range of motor skills like throwing, catching, running, kicking, balance, agility and coordination.

Because a large variety of skills and physical abilities are required on a football team, there is a position for every child to play.

Deloraine Junior Football Club re entered the Northern Tasmanian Junior Football Association (NTJFA) in 2002 and fields teams in this competition each year.
