The teams are in and three magnificent stages are set for one of the great weeks of junior football with the SEDA 2018 AFL South East Regional Junior Championships set to kick off at Beaconsfield’s Holm Park Reserve on Wednesday 6 June.
Full team lists are now available on the brand new Digital Record – www.aflsejuniorchampionships.com.au – as some of the finest footballers in the region prepare to showcase their skills.
The most promising young talent will be on full display with boys and girls from the Frankston Districts, Mornington Peninsula, South East and Yarra Ranges Junior Football Leagues set to match motors in under 13 to 17s for boys and under 15 and 18s for girls.
A total of 22 teams will play 24 matches, with Frankston Park and Shepley Oval in Dandenong to take over the reins from Beaconsfield for the last two days of competition on Saturday 9 and Monday 11 June.
The Queen’s Birthday carnival, an important stepping stone in the Dandenong Stingrays Pathway, has grown in significance over the years and is now aligned with both the Melbourne and St Kilda Football Club’s Next Generation Academies (NGA).
AFLSE RGM John Anderson said the carnival had quickly developed a strong reputation for identifying the next wave of talent emerging through the junior system.
“The Regional Junior Championships have become a very important stepping stone in the pathway to higher honours, such as selection on AFL and AFLW lists, “ Anderson said.
“The carnival atmosphere and high level of competition provide the perfect platform for our stars going forward.”
This year’s carnival is proudly supported by SEDA College, where Year 11 and 12 students complete their senior secondary education immersed in the sports industry.
A $5 entry charge per vehicle will apply for Wednesday night’s fixture at Holm Park Reserve. The gate fee is to partially cover the cost of traffic management at the venue and there will no exceptions to this rule. Overflow parking will be available at Perc Allison Oval, off Beaconsfield-Emerald Road (500m south of Holm Park Reserve).
