Message from the President

Dear all players, sponsors, parents, team managers, coaches and committee members.

For those of you who don’t know, my name is Domenic (Dom) Caccamo and I am excited to have taken on the role as President of the Stirling Junior Football Club (SJFC). I wish to thank my Committee made up of returning and new members who have come on board and together we will aim to make the next season a fun and exciting time for our players, families and club as a whole.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank outgoing President Vanessa Nastasi and Vice President Peter Yow for all the hard work they have put in over the years. There is so much that goes on behind the scenes to keep the club running and without a doubt we could not have been as successful as we were without them. I also thank all past committee members for your support and dedication as without you events and smooth running of our club also would not have been possible.

As season 2020 comes to a close, I want to take this opportunity to say congratulations to our players, members and coaches on a successful 2020. We understand that this year was a “little different” to say the least, as we were all dealing with the worldwide COVID Pandemic. I must commend you, you all took this in your stride and did what was needed to ensure that our kids were provided a safe environment to play and most importantly have fun!

Like most sporting clubs, we rely heavily on our sponsors to keep our club going. 2020 has been a difficult year for many businesses small and large. To those that have been able to assist us in 2020 and those committed for 2021 let me say on behalf of myself, the Committee and our members, Thank You!. Without you, we would not have a club.

Our Sponsors are vital for the survivorship of our club, by way of upkeep/replacement of football equipment, First Aid equipment, apparel and club events. If you, or someone you know would like to sponsor or make a donation to our club we are always appreciative. Our Sponsorship Coordinator is available and ready to talk to you.

Myself and my fellow Committee members are in the planning stages for Season 2021, and we hope to see positive changes to the Club, and with guidance from the WAFC (West Australian Football Commission) in relation to training sessions, player development, coaches development, and more events and community engagement with our Sponsors.

I am pleased to announce that the Committee have decided for the upcoming 2021 season, that Registration Fees will NOT increase, but will remain the same as 2020 with some added extras for our players.

Your 2021 registration will include:

  • An AFL Auskick pack sent directly from the AFL
  • Training shirt and cap for all returning players
  • New players to the Stirling Saints will be provided with a training shirt, shorts, socks and a cap.
    Junior and Youth Players to Stirling (Year 3 and up)
  • Training shirt and cap for all returning players
  • New players to Stirling Saints will receive a player pack consisting of a football bag, jacket, training shirt, shorts, socks and a cap.

For all registered players there will be an End of Season wind up including trophies for all members and a Team photo. There will also be weekly team awards and various activities throughout the year including, team dinners, club nights and other fun events.

Registrations for junior and youth players are now open and Auskick will be live as of December 2020 and can be accessed through our website

I know that your Committee members are very excited about what lies ahead for 2021 and we hope that you too will share in helping us make your club better.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions as you are instrumental in keeping this club going for our children.
