Attention: Under 15’s & 17’s Parents

Dear Under 15 and under 17 players and parents,

By way of introduction, my name is Rowan Bilkey, I am the Coaching Director of the Cardiff Hawks Australian Football Club.

The 2019 season is now behind us and we have enjoyed some terrific success in the junior ranks, with the Hawks lifting two premiership cups on the last day of the season. The senior teams enjoyed a strong season in both the women’s and men’s teams, although we fell short of our ultimate goal.

2020 is shaping up as an exciting year as we look to take that final step, and preparations are well underway. In 2019 the senior men’s team included three Under 17 players who played a total of ten games between them, including finals matches. In 2020 we are excited to see how many of our talented juniors can take the step to senior football.

To this end, I would like to invite each of you to an information night to give you an opportunity to find out a little bit about the senior club. We will give you an idea of what is expected of players in a senior club environment, but also what players and parents can expect from the club. We will also cover:

  • Who’s who of the senior club
  • Player mental welfare
  • Medical facilities and treatment
  • Culture and history
  • Training structures, dates programs
  • Game day routines and expectations

We look forward to seeing you there.

Location: Pasterfield Sports Complex
Date: Monday October 28
Time: 6:30pm – 7:30pm

Players and parents welcome.

Rowan Bilkey
Coaching Director
