The MPNFL 2022 Season will get underway on Saturday April 2, with two blockbusters to start the Division One competition. Scheduled 2021 finalists go head-to-head, when Mt Eliza takes on Frankston Bombers, while Bonbeach and Frankston YCW will meet for the first time since the 2019 Elimination Final. The first siren will sound on the same weekend for Division Two with four games, when Seaford v Langwarrin, Crib Point v Chelsea, Somerville v Hastings on Saturday, before Devon Meadows play Pearcedale on Sunday April 3 to round out the return to football and netball in the region. All 22 MPNFL Clubs will compete on Saturday April 9, before further marquee matches create an opportunity for big crowds over the Easter long weekend. Karingal and Rye host Mornington and Tyabb respectively on Good Friday in Division Two, while the traditional Edithvale-Aspendale v Bonbeach and Red Hill v Dromana clashes will headline Division One. Easter Saturday sees local rivals Sorrento play Rosebud and Pines host Frankston YCW. Back-to-back long weekends complete the first four weeks of the MPNFL calendar, with the ANZAC Day long weekend providing big games, capped off with Mt Eliza v Red Hill and Mornington taking on Devon Meadows on the public holiday Monday to commemorate the sacrifice of our incredible service men and women. As part of the MPNFL’s Reconciliation Action Plan, in conjunction with MPNFL clubs’ own commitments, Saturday May 21 will see four matches recognise National Reconciliation Week. Two matches in Division Two (Crib Point v Tyabb and Hastings v Pearcedale) headline the occasion, meanwhile Division One (Frankston Bombers v Bonbeach and Pines v Red Hill) will also have ceremonies to acknowledge shared histories, cultures and achievements and explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. Clubs participating will also be wearing Indigenous jumpers to further raise awareness in the lead up to National Reconciliation Week. Division Two will have a competition bye on Queens Birthday weekend, while all roads lead down the Southern Peninsula with Sorrento hosting Rosebud on Saturday June 11 and Dromana hosting Red Hill on Sunday June 12 in standalone Division One clashes. Division One will have a bye on Saturday July 9 in the lead up to the final six rounds, with an opportunity for football and netball lovers to see Division Two clashes between Chelsea and Devon Meadows, Crib Point and Hastings, Karingal and Tyabb, Langwarrin and Somerville, Seaford and Pearcedale. Rye will take on Mornington in celebration of their 100th season on this weekend. All 22 clubs will be eyeing a hopeful finals berth, with Division Two starting their four-week finals series on August 20 with a Premiership Cup to be held aloft on Saturday September 10.

FOAM ROLLING – Peninsula Sports Medicine
FOAM ROLLING – Peninsula Sports Medicine
WHAT IS FOAM ROLLING? Foam rolling works by placing direct and sweeping pressure on the soft tissue targeted. Foam rolling has shown to have short-term benefits that result in increased joint range of movement, reductions in pain, and severity of DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). Foam rolling has been shown to be particularly effective in the first 1-2 days following exercise. It is theorized that foam rolling helps to produce the above results by causing short-term alterations to the neuromuscular system. However, the exact physiological mechanisms of foam rolling that cause the above results are yet to be clearly established. HOW TO EFFECTIVELY FOAM ROLL? Depending on the muscle group you are targeting, use the foam roller in a sweeping fashion along the length of the muscle. You can also friction over ‘problem’ or ‘tight’ areas. You may use a foam roller, spikey ball, trigger point ball or hand roller with this technique. WHEN TO USE FOAM ROLLING? Foam rolling can be used before or after a game of sport, for approximately 1-2 minutes per major muscle group (eg. hamstrings or quadriceps). Before a game, foam rolling should only play a small role in your active warm-up. After a game, foam rolling should be combined with an active cool-down and then static stretching. STILL NOT SURE WHAT TO DO? Contact one of our experienced physiotherapists at Peninsula Sports Medicine Group to help guide you with your injury prevention/conditioning and injury rehabilitation to let you reach your sporting goals!
