Our mission at the Warragul Football and Netball Club is very simple. We aim to create an environment of excellence in which young men and women are assisted in achieving their full potential as footballers, netballers and people, in an atmosphere which promotes strong family values, excellence and instils qualities of personal development, team pride and sportsmanship in everything we do.
First established in 1879, the Warragul Football and Netball Club has a long history of being a family friendly environment for the youth of Warragul and surrounding communities.
The Club is now in its 138th year of serving the Warragul and District Community. Throughout this period, we have been reasonably successful; winning nineteen 1st Premierships, sixteen 2nd Premierships and since joining the League in 2000, two netball premierships.
We are committed to providing a competitive and enjoyable opportunity for young football and netball players. The teams play in the Gippsland League, which is the highest standard of competition in our area and we aim to project a high level of professionalism. As a family Club, our hope is that all our members (player, parent or sponsor) gain enjoyment from participation in a positive manner.
The Club operates from the Western Park Recreation Reserve and actively contributes to the Committee of Management. Facilities at the Club available for players to use include a full size football oval, two floodlit netball courts, a social room and a gym facility. We are affiliated with the Gippsland All Abilities Team and also field the following teams in the Gippsland League as well as new in 2021, we are fielding 3 teams in the Warragul & District Junior Football League (WDJFL) :
Football U10 Football U12 Football U14 Football U16 Football U18 Football Reserves Football Senior Football
Netball U13 Netball U15 Netball U17 Netball C Grade Netball B Grade Netball A Grade Netball
The Club’s Junior Development Philosophy and Policy is to ensure Coaches at a junior level are appropriately skilled and accredited so that junior players both enjoy playing football and netball and are given every opportunity to reach their potential. Senior teams are selected on merit and if junior players are capable of playing at a higher level, they will be given the opportunity to do so.
We hope that all who participate in the Club will enjoy the experience and we look forward to your support as we excel both on and off the field or court.
