Hills Pathway Ignites

Monday, September 7, 2015 - 9:00 AM by Daniel CURTIS

Hills Rangers Junior Football Club in partnership with the Swans District have developed a fantastic new program that looks to bridge the gap for Junior Hills Club players as they enter their Youth pathways in the Swans District going forward.

In consultation with a number of key stakeholders in the wider Hills community, the Hills Rangers Year 6 Program looks to encapsulate all current Year 6 Junior Hills players and formalise the Hills Rangers Year 6 Round Robin teams which participate in the Swans District JCC Round Robin Competition.

As the Round Robin Competition provides a fantastic lead in for Swans District Junior Competition teams and players to familiarise themselves with their future induction into Youth football, the Junior Hills Clubs have formed together two exciting teams under the Hills Rangers Junior Football Club banner.

With players and coaching staff coming together from the number of Junior Hills Clubs, all players received their own specifically designed Hills Rangers singlets to wear to training and on game day. With admin and coaching support from Swans District staff, the Hills Rangers Yr 6 Program has been a resounding success with nearly 90% of players in the Junior Hills Competition being involved in the program.

Chidlow JFC President and Hills Rangers Yr 6 Grey Coach, Sean Fitzgerald, was appreciative of the support by all parties involved in putting together the program, "The support we've received from Swans District and the Hills Rangers JFC in ensuring that the future stars of tomorrow have a strong and viable pathway to follow has been fantastic for all involved".

Swans District and the Hills Rangers JFC aims to continue this strong and viable pathway for all players in the Shire of Mundaring. We would also like to thank Kal Express for the in kind support of the Year 6 Hills Rangers program.
