To all Norwood Families,

With the registration day and season launch behind us, we now look forward to our practice matches and looming season commencement.

Before we move on too quickly, I would like to take the opportunity to thank our committee, the Wooder’s, our Senior Coach Patrick Bowden and Footy Future Legend’s, Leigh Williams and Nick Blair for their assistance in facilitating our Season Launch evening, which all in all was a tremendous success.

It is great to see a number of meaningful initiatives coming to fruition including our Football Academy, Welfare Hub and Jumper Upgrade, all scheduled to be activated in time for round one. We will communicate the details over the coming weeks and look forward to your feedback.

Turning our attention to the season ahead, with preseason training well underway, round 1 in 5 weeks time and two practices matches to be played beforehand, it will not be long before the “smell” of footy season takes over.

As a reminder, we are still actively seeking players across a number of age groups, so please talk to your friends, your school mates, your neighbours and get them to come along and join the Norwood community!

Looking forward, there are a number of key dates to put in your diary. These include:

Merchandise Clearance Sale: Friday 16th March (5.00pm to 7.00pm @ Mullum Reserve)
Wooders Working Bee: Sunday 18th March (10.00am @ Mullum Reserve)
Practice Match One vs Rowville: Sunday 25th March (@ Rowville)
Practice Match Two vs Whitehorse: Sunday 8th April
Season Round 1: Sunday 14th April

A reminder also that our sponsorship offer continues, in that if you bring a new sponsor to the club (sponsorships start from as little as $400), you will receive a refund of your childs registration. If this is of interest to you please contact Wayne Knight on 0418 607 890.

In regards to information, we have updated the Junior section of the Norwood Football club website, so to keep up to date on all things Norwood Junior Football connect at Also don’t forget our Social Media Platforms on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Thanks to all and bring on the season! I look forward to catching up with everyone throughout the year!
