Key Dates

2018 Season Dates

Junior season starts on the weekend of 7/8 April and runs through to the end of August 2018.


What is a muster? A muster is a friendly kick around.

What are trials? Trials are for those players seeking selection in a Premier or graded team, however we do encourage all players to trial.

Trials and musters will take place on the grass adjacent to the Shandon Golf course (pitch #3).  Please arrive 15 minutes prior to trial times to enable players to be placed in teams.


There will be no junior or U17 games on the following dates:

- 21/22 April (April School Holidays)
