President's Report for the Fremantle City Dockers Junior FC AGM

Hilton Bowling Club November 26, 2016 


The 2016 Season was a year of high achievement for the Freo City Dockers, such a level of success that all Freo City Dockers members would be extremely proud of.

The biggest celebration followed the Year 9s success in winning the Freo City Dockers JFC 1st Premiership, winning an exciting game in front of a large supporter group by 7 points. This was an unbelievably momentous occasion.

Not to be outdone, the Y10s played off in the Finals for the 2nd consecutive year. Jacob Sax topped off the celebrations winning the Best Player award in the Y10s.

The next big win came with the FCDJFC being awarded the 2016 Champion Club (200+ members)!

This was a reward to the dedicated hard working Volunteers who ensured the Club runs smoothly and efficiently and follows the guidelines without any impediment.

In 2016 the Club ventured out into the social arena big time, courtesy of the dedication of Nancy and Claude.

Gourmet sausage sizzles, market stalls, field days were all topped off with a scintillating night of questions and answers at the Quiz Night at East Fremantle FC. Superb facilities, plenty of parking, great service and MC Claude outstanding performance. 2017 Quiz Night will be a sell out.

The format of the 2016 Annual Trophy Day and Wind Up was altered dramatically from years gone by. Following on from feedback received, the Club Awards were now presented in front of the majority of AUSKICK, Modified and Youth players and parent/guardians/siblings. The worthy recipients were proud to be acknowledged. The day did not run as smoothly as hoped, but, it worked due to the hard work of the organisers, with lots of activities and lots of food.

The canteen again performed beyond all expectations. Nancy ran a tight ship serving profitable healthy foods and managing apparel sales and registrations with Melissa and Felicity. New hoodies were the stand out apparel item along with Safety Zones sourced club jacket.

The club continues to maintain our high levels of membership (419).

  • We have 6 x teams in AUSKICK from Pre-primary age to 7 Year olds.
  • We have 9 x teams in the Y3 (PUPS) to Y6.
  • We have 4 x teams on youth age group Y7 to Y10
  • 2 x All Girl Teams.

Unfortunately, we were unable to field a Y8 group due to lack of numbers, but we did find them a spot at neighbour Cockburn JFC

The Club acknowledges the dedication and diligence of Club Registrar Felicity Moore.

It was noted in 2016 the Club had 11 x Y9s and Y10 players selected in the SFFC Development Squads. Many of these players have been members of the Club since Pre-Primary AUSKICK.

We also had a total of 11 female football players who got accepted into the state development squads for Women’s’ AFL in either the 12/13 WAFC Orientation Squad or the 14-18 year old WAFC Development Squad.

This is indeed a clear sign the FCDJFC is progressing well with their player development and we have the expertise in our coaching pool.

It was noted in 2016 the Club continues with its focus on strong financial management (money in the bank).

And in 2016 our new Treasurer David kept us on the financial straight and narrow

The backbone of the Club’s strong financial base is due to our Sponsors. Many are close to qualifying for “Life Membership”.

The club acknowledges the Partnership with the Fremantle Dockers Football Club and the assistance provided by Community Goals Manager Wade Spilcker. The Club members again experienced playing on the hallow turf of Subiaco Oval.

The FCDJFC also had a couple of other noted achievements – finally got our solar panels installed on the roof, thanks to Phil and our power bill disappeared consequently

AND we have a universal access car park located on the western side of our clubrooms. Marvelous!!

To be successful, the Club requires a strong volunteer base, not just from coaches and team managers, although without them we do not have a club.

Come along to the 2017 Registration Day on Sunday 19 February and join in with the successful team from the mighty Freo City Dockers Junior Football Club.

Beaconsfield boy lives unforgettable Toyota AFL Grand Final Experience

Beaconsfield boy, Fred Rodriguez, was the envy of his friends on the weekend when he participated in the 2014 Toyota AFL Grand Final, one of the biggest events on the Australian sporting calendar.

Fred, a participant at the Fremantle City Dockers NAB AFL Auskick centre, had the time of his life during a weekend of action packed activity. Fred’s experience kicked off in style at the NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year Awards Dinner at the MCG where Geelong Captain and NAB Auskick ambassador, Joel Selwood, presented Fred with his official NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year playing jumper.

On Friday, Fred, walked alongside fellow Auskickers and the two competing Toyota AFL Grand Final teams through the streets of Melbourne in the traditional Toyota AFL Grand Final Parade.

Grand Final Day was undoubtedly the highlight of the trip when Fred played NAB AFL Auskick on the MCG in front of 100,000 fans at half-time of the big game.  After the match Fred, along with the other 21 NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year nominees, presented Hawthorn with their 2014 Premiership Medals.

“It was so exciting to play in front of so many people on the MCG, and getting to present a premiership medal to Ben Stratton with all my friends and family watching on TV was really cool too!” Fred said.

Young Fred’s opportunity to participate in this unforgettable three day Toyota AFL Grand Final experience came to life through NAB’s Auskicker of the Year competition.

NAB is dedicated to Footifying Australia and has been genuinely growing the game for the past ten years through support of programs like NAB AFL Auskick. Every year, over 175,000 children participate in NAB AFL Auskick at one of 3,000 centres nationwide.
