Important District News Update
Dear Presidents and Secretaries of the Perth Football District,
Based on both the survey results for going cross districts for Year 9’s in 2015 ( select here to view) and the future of the competition, we have made some significant decisions which will affect all playing days within the Perth Football District. These changes are effective immediately.
I believe we are the only district that play Yr 4’s – Yr 6’s on a Sunday and Yr 7’s upwards on a Saturday
At some point in the future, most probably from 2016 we will be playing cross districts with East Perth and maybe even Swan Districts so we need to align with these districts.
Currently if you host Auskick on a Saturday, kids need to change playing days 3 times by Year 12 or best case scenario twice if you host Auskick on a Sunday. These changes happen to align with the major drop off years of 6-7 and 9-10.
Playing the days we do and then changing only a couple of age groups will have a detrimental effect on the success we’ve had with developing junior umpires who still wish to play football.
PSA players in year 9-12 cannot currently cannot play club football on Saturdays due to school commitments. Whilst this may only pertain to a few clubs, if these players were able to play club footy also it may have a positive flow on effect for the whole competition.
Change No 1
Effective immediately all playing days from Year 4’s and upwards will swap. I.e. Year 4’s – Year 6’s will now play on Saturday mornings and Year 7’s and upwards will now play on Sundays. Auskick will remain as it is however we do recommend that you host Auskick on a Saturday.
Change No 2
Effective immediately Year 9’s will play in a cross district competition with East Perth.
So yes, these are big changes but based on the feedback from stakeholders and of course the future of the competition at this stage we have no significant reason to not make these decisions but plenty of reason for doing so. Our kids of course do change playing days by default during their junior career so really, this should not have any impact. If as a result we clash with competing sports, kids will have to make decisions on which sport they prefer but if ideally we have the best product with the best environment made up of the best clubs and coaches then footy will always win out.
