AFL Cape York’s Community Engagement philosophy centres on activities that promote social justice, education, health and foster a strong sense of community spirit. Our Programs work very hard to support and drive leadership aspirations amongst participants and communities. It is the goal of AFL Cape York to demonstrate appropriate leadership and support those who wish to follow in the same footsteps and to become a positive role model in their own community.
Community engagement is at the forefront of our agenda and establishing the Eagles Junior Football Club, located at AFL Cape York House, Buchan St has been a highlight. The Eagles FC compete in youth age groups within the AFL Cairns Juniors Competition. The Eagles FC was founded in 2014 and has tasted monumental success in winning Four (4) premierships access the Under 15 and Colts (under 17.5) Competitions. The Eagles FC is an inclusive family-orientated Club giving Students inside and outside of AFL Cape York House the opportunity to play, learn and develop their leadership and volunteering skills.
In 2018, we have the following teams playing with the Eagles FC; Colts (U17.5 Competition) and U14’s. The Colts Competition is gernally played on Wednesday & Friday Nights under lights at either Cazalys Stadium, Watsons Oval, Crathern Park or Port Douglas Sporting Complex, while the U14 Competition in played on a Sunday afternoon, with matches spread across all nine Junior Home Grounds throughout the year.
Training for the Eagles is:
Colts Team: Monday 04:15pm to 05:30pm at AFL Cape York House, Buchan St
U14’s Team: Monday & Thursdays 04:15pm to 05:30pm at AFL Cape York House, Buchan St
