CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL TEAMS WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE YEAR 2/3 CARNIVAL AT HICKINBOTHAM OVAL ON SATURDAY 4TH OF AUGUST. LOTS OF ENTHUSIASM AND DETERMINATION EXHIBITED FROM ALL PLAYERS WAS GREAT TO WITNESS. CONGRATULATIONS TO CHRISTIES BEACH PS AND ALL SAINTS PS WHO MADE THE FINAL WITH ALL SAINTS WINNING NARROWLY. WELL PLAYED !
Our first Carnival for 2012 was held at Hickinbotham Oval on Saturday the 19th of May for the Year 6/7's. Congratulations to all teams on the way they played and performed. It was a great morning of Junior Football at this Level. Teams from Antonio and Braeview played off in the Final, with Braeview finishing on top. Well Done to both Teams. The Year 4/5 Carnival was held the following Saturday, again at Hicknbotham Oval, in front of lots of supportive Parents and Grandparents. While a few issues did arise on the day, in general the day was enjoyed by all and saw Woodcroft PS win the Carnival for the second Year in a row. Well done to all Teams and good Luck for the rest of the Year. We must all remember that these Carnivals are put on to enable all teams to assemble in a central venue to enjoy multiple games in a fun energetic environment. It is vital that all Adults demonstrate appropriate behaviour and sportsmanship to set good examples to the players. Remember the Codes of Conduct are there for a reason ! There are always going to be management issues with the players conduct and behaviour, that's the opportunity sport provides. Sport provides great teaching opportunities for Coaches and Parents - lets make sure we identify them and act on them ! Many thanks to the Braeview Eagles helpers in running a fantastic BBQ and Canteen on the two days.

REMEMBER THE GREEN SHIRT MEANS A UMPIRE LEARNING AND NO NEGATIVE COMMENTS ARE TO BE DIRECTED THEIR WAY. PLEASE BE SUPPORTIVE OR IF YOU CAN"T BE SUPPORTIVE SAY NOTHING !!! Our umpires do a great job on the whole and many are trying umpiring for the first time. Pictured are Ron Fuller, Hanna Greenshields, Josh Thewlis, Nick Murphy, Sam Tugwell and Oliver Gabb who formed an umpiring panel for a Friday Night footy round at Hickinbotham Oval last year.
FRIDAY NIGHT FOOTY was again enjoyed by those who participated. Thanks to Kangarilla PS and South Adelaide Football Club. Our picture shows the Pimpala/Southern Vales Year 2/3's enjoying Friday night Footy at Hickinbotham Oval on the 18th of May, 2012.
Welcome to the 2012 kick-off -We welcome teams back into our competition a Year 2/3 team from Pimpala and Southern Vales and also extra teams from Hackham East, Calvary and Woodcroft Primary Schools. Unfortunately we lose teams from Reynella and Braeview and after such a long history in the Panther League, Happy Valley Primary school is no longer represented in their own right.
Nonetheless we have maintained our 30 teams across all 3 Divisions so for the first time in many years we have not suffered a decline in numbers. We hope our numbers have bottomed out the future of School Football can maintain its numbers and even grow providing youngsters with the thrill of playing school sport and in particular footy.
