Early interest points to a good season for junior football
FOOTBALL: The Warwick District Football Club starts 2017 with a new committee.
The past committee has worked hard to build the club and numbers are steadily growing, which has been a credit to the hard work and commitment shown by the volunteers.
As a new member of the committee, president Karen Welsh said she had been overwhelmed by the help and support from the outgoing committee.
"My introduction to football came from my second-eldest daughter, Jasmyne, when she decided to change from representative netball to football in Year 12,” Welsh said.
"Unfortunately she only played four or five games before a knee injury but her love for the sport continued in administration with Brisbane Roar.
"My younger two children started playing football and encouraged me.
"So at age 48, I joined the Warwick Wolves women's team.
"I really enjoyed the challenge of learning a new sport and the training sessions were great for fitness.
"The team consisted of girls as young as 14 to mature ladies with families.”
Football is an inclusive sport for all ages, ability levels and has the world's largest fan base.
The club would like to welcome all new and existing members.
Numbers are looking good for juniors so register early to ensure your place.
The Warwick Wolves Academy has started training and the players have already been to a Roar game at Suncorp Stadium.
The men's and colts' teams train twice weekly.
