We hope you had a wonderful festive season and relaxing
Our Roy Boys and Roy Girls are refreshed and ready to
make up for lost time, and a lost season! And we can't
wait to watch them run back out the race in 2021.
All teams were back on the training track this week and
from all reports from our coaches, are looking fighting
There are still a few unknowns. We need to follow the
health advise from the State Government and guidelines
from the VAFA, but we're hoping that everything continues
to track well so we can get a season underway. For now,
we'll all keep doing the right thing to keep everyone safe
and look forward to seeing you all at the footy!
Fitzroy unveils Pride jumper
We are thrilled to reveal our inaugural Pride game jumper
Nikkita, sister of women’s leadership team member, Shannon
Alexander, is doing a degree in visual design and had always
wanted to try her hand at designing a Pride jumper.
The women’s playing group voted on the successful design,
after Nikkita designed a number of options.
The women’s leadership group proposed the idea of a pride
jumper to the board some time ago and the opportunity has
become a reality thanks to a Change Our Game Community
Melbourne University Women’s team, the Muggars, will host
the game at a date to be set during the middle of the season,
once the fixture is finalised.
Roy Girls tackle their training
Back on picturesque Corben Oval for pre-season training,
the Roy girls were treated to over two hours of expert
training on how to tackle. And they lapped it up!
On Wednesday night, senior coach Bronte Ryan had a surprise
visitor take the women’s squads through their paces.
Malcolm Bangs is pretty well known across Victorian football
teams. Since 2009 and across teams of all levels – from
Auskick to AFL (most recently for the past four seasons
with Geelong) – Malcolm has provided specialist coaching
and consultation on how, when and why to tackle.
And, importantly, how to use it to advantage on game day.
Thanks for your time Malcolm! If their reception on Wednesday
night is anything to go by, the Roy girls will do you proud
when they hit the field this season.
