Magpies gear up for the season

It's AFL time again.

And what better place to play than the Byron Bay area, with excellent coaching, superb weather, great grounds and competition, and a supportive Aussie Rules community.

It just doesn't get any better…

The Byron Bay Magpies are signing up for this season, and both veteran and new players are invited to join in for what promises to be another lively season.

This year the AFL is trialling new age divisions and hopefully will have enough numbers to begin an under 16s side.

In addition to the under 10s, 12s and 14s, there will be Auskick on Friday nights between 5.30 and 7pm for the 5s, 6s and under 8s. This is a fun, easy way for younger players to break into local competition.

For the under 10s, 12s, 14s and (hopefully) 16s, games are played on Sunday, with training at Shultz Oval (Bangalow) between 4.30 and 6 pm Wednesdays.

Training commences the first Wednesday in March.

Sign-ups began last Sunday, and another session will be held at Shultz Oval between 10am and 2pm this Sunday.

Anyone interested in getting involved can contact John and Vanessa on 6687 2787 or 0408 791 286.

The Byron Magpies fielded very strong teams last season, and with enthusiasm already running high, will be the side to watch for 2009.
