East Perth Community Coaches Academy

Tuesday, August 15, 2017 - 4:12 PM

10 Community Youth Football coaches from the Royals District were given the opportunity to further develop their coaching skills alongside WA Football League (WAFL) coaches, Talent Managers and WAFC District Development Staff over the past 6 months. 

Coaches were able to buddy up with a mentor for the duration of the program and took part in a series of professional development sessions that focus on skill development, match-day coaching and club training.
  
The main aim of the program was to provide an opportunity for community coaches to improve their skills to ensure the standard of community coaching is continually being enhanced to meet the changing needs of the players and the sport itself.

Program organiser, WAFC Metro Central District Operations Manager Scott Faulkner said the program is all about sharing and developing best coaching practice.

“The Community Coach Academy program aims to provide an inner-sanctum experience for youth-aged community coaches, and an opportunity for the sharing of best practice,” Faulkner said.

“Coaches are put through an extensive program that aims to improve all facets of their coaching, from training through to match day.

Round 21 Post-Match Q&A: Willie Rioli

Monday, August 14, 2017 - 3:00 PM - by Jasmine Cookson

Willie Rioli was the star in last weekened’s win against the Swans. He not only managed to put on four goals, but he also treated fans to an exceptional display Rioli magic that we all love to watch. We had a quick chat to the man who added a touch of class to the Royals win on Saturday.

You guys had a really good game today, a really good team effort, what was the mindset going into this week?

Just to play our way and to play the way we know we can play well and win. That was our main focus and we did it today.

You’re a great one-touch player, is that a conscious role you play on your part?

I’m one of the players that doesn’t get much of the ball but when I do get the ball I’m pretty dangerous. That’s just the way I grew up playing footy and I’m pretty reliable around goals and I’m lucky that I kicked a few today.

How do you work with the other boys like Shayne Hille and Julian Ameduri? You look like you fit in well?

Yeah we all play the same sport so we all get around each other and they direct me. I wouldn’t have got those goals if they didn’t put me in the right spot. But I’m happy to be back playing senior footy and going into the finals.

How do you go into the next couple of weeks keeping your form up?

Just doing everything I can to finish off these last few games and hopefully finals. I didn’t have a good run this year with my hamstring so just each week, taking it as it comes and making sure my hamstring is good to go by the weekend.

You guys seem to have an emphasis on playing four quarters of good football, how do you guys make sure you carry that on for the next couple of weeks?

Yeah just to stick to your game plan and it’ll work.

Friday, August 11, 2017 - 2:46 PM

The annual East Perth Banquet Auction was held on the 10th of August at the picturesque State Reception Centre at Fraser’s Restaurant in King’s Park.

Australia’s best auctioneer, Tiny Holly from ‘Have Gavel, Will Travel’ conducted the live Auction in front of a 250-strong crowd. With the assistance of MC David Christison our Live Auction raised $110,000!

For the third year the silent auction was conducted online through Galabid. This allowed all the East Perth members and supporters the opportunity to get their hands on one (or more) of our 250 items generously donated by the WA community. This part of the night raised more than $22,500, bringing the overall total to over $132,500!

The club would like to thank MC David Christison, auctioneer Tiny Holly, Chris Taylor and his staff at Fraser’s Restaurant, Ty and André from Galabid, everyone who attended or bid online and of course to everyone who kindly donated items for the night.

East Perth would also like to thank Brook and his team at Brook's Choice Relocation for taking up and bring back all our items.

It was a tremendous night for the football club and everyone who attended or participated.
