U11 Red Team Cancer Support Shave Off Success!

What an amazing evening last Friday, with many people shaving their heads to raise money for the Cancer Council. Over $500 was raised on the night, so a big thank you to all the folks who donated. We all wish Clodie the best in her recovery from breast cancer. More photos of the evening can be seen here https://photos.app.goo.gl/QRKgiWbvC3KeYaJx2

Safety and clubhouse news

All Parents Please do not “drop and go” your children, you must be present during training. We also request that parents stay off the fields during Friday night training (except Cubs & U6). Please take advantage of the canteen, listen to the live music, and relax while your child is exercised and tired out ready for bed time!

Training equipment We have recently noticed pieces of training equipment such as tackle pads being abused by various children while not being actively used. Some of these items cost several hundred dollars and are all funded out of club subscriptions.

  • If you take equipment from the shed it is YOUR responsibility to ensure it is used correctly and kept safe
  • If you take equipment from the shed it is YOUR responsibility to put it back neatly
  • NO children are permitted in the shed unless with an adult
  • Children are NOT permitted to play with the equipment

No alcohol on the fields Please be aware that Kenmore Bears alcohol licence does not allow alcohol to be taken outside of the Clubhouse precinct. Do not take alcohol on the fields, or in the playground areas.

Canteen and BBQ

Please enjoy the canteen on Friday nights and game days. There is a selection of beers and wines, great coffee, and plenty of food.


This Friday Night – Mulled wine to warm the cockles of your heart on these cold nights

Various Pizzas – freshly made on the night!



Hot Chips


The BBQ will be running as usual. This week’s duties (Friday 18 May):

5:20pm – 6:30pm U8 White

6:25pm – 7:40pm U10 White
