February 20, 2017 - SWEET SHEDS THE DREADS
Jordon Sweet is shaving his head to raise money for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation
READ MORE +

Jordon Sweet will be shaving his head to raise money for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation.

Jordon's Story: 
I will be shaving my head and losing the Dreads on Friday 31st March at the North Adelaide Football Club Open Training Session and Season Launch.

The reason I have been inspired to shave my head, is that I have a very close family member who has recently been diagnosed with a rare and incurable cancer.

The diagnosis shocked our family and due to the fact that some of his immediate family have both passed and also survived other forms of cancer, the news has effected our whole family. This family member also has children of around my age and how they may be feeling is unimaginable as I cant begin to comprehend how I would feel if that was my parent.

Therefore I have chosen the ACRF to help fund further research in hope that one day a cure will be found for all forms of cancer and no person or their families will be a victim of such an evil disease.

Anyone who has ever asked me to "Get a Haircut", please find the generosity to donate to the Australian Cancer Research Foundation and help support their aim of eliminating the devastating effects of Cancer.

A dontation page has been set up, if you would like to donate and help Jordon reach his target of raising $1,500

STATEWIDE SUPER WOMEN'S ROUND 1 

Round 1 is here for the Inaugural Statewide Super Women's League and it is history in the making when our Rooster Women take on Norwood in the first ever match of  SANFL Women's Football tonight at Coopers Stadium. 

With the SANFL Statewide Super Women’s League kicking off on Friday Feburary 17, Zac Milbank caught up with Football Operations Manager Tom Hurley to produce a last minute guide to the inaugural competition.

Q – What was the process in forming each team’s list?

A – First priority was given to an even distribution of talent among the four teams, followed by the geographical location of the player’s residence.

A – Yes, for matches with a forecast temperature of 32C or more, SANFL has the potential to reduce the length of quarters, lengthen breaks at quarter-time and half-time and ensure shade is available for access during each change. In extreme conditions, an extended interchange bench may be allowed.

A – All matches, including the Grand Final, are free entry.

February 16, 2017 - Final word from Matt Slade
As the coach, I can confidently say that I have thoroughly enjoyed working with this team. We cant wait to get onto the parade and show exactly what this team is made of. We are determined to establish ourselves as the bench mark of this competition through hard, physical work. Although we would never attempt to presume any outcomes, I am confident that everything that this group does on the field, will be done at absolute peak intensity and we will be content with whatever outcome this type of effort produces. 
READ MORE +
As we look to complete our final preparation leading into Round 1, it is very evident that the level of intensity has significantly increased amongst the playing group. The players are at a point whereby they are putting everything on the line with a clear focus and intent on being selected in the side for our first hit out. The group and the coaching staff are extremely anxious as well as excited and raring to go in the anticipation of exerting a fierce attack on the ball at the Parade Friday night.
The girls have come a long way from our first session back on Thursday the 19th of January. I feel that the understanding of how hard players are expected to work and the knowledge of the key principles of play that the girls need to grasp, has been the biggest eye opener throughout the course of our training block. Other challenges that we have faced include; the variety of clubs that the group have originated from, a vast range in fitness and skill levels, as well as general experience and knowledge of the game. In a short period of time we have been determined to bring this group together and work to bridge these gaps amongst our playing cohort. Special mentions must go out to Jess Edwards and Leah Tynan for the self driven commitments they have made to achieving this outcome. Both girls also display an impressive work ethic and are very talented footballers. This made the job of selecting our teams leaders relatively easy, with these two girls filling the main roles.
All the players have had to quickly adjust to the training and extra requirements that come with being a part of this team, while balancing their work or studies in conjunction. The group has shown tremendous resilience to achieve this and the attitudes they have displayed has been spectacular, proving that they are taking this opportunity very seriously and are hoping to make the most of the experience, which strongly supports how we as a coaching panel feel and the expectations that we have strived to instill in the girls.
Our playing group as a whole has shown a clear desire to improve and be the best players they can be. This has been obvious with the level of feedback they have requested and the constant questions that I am presented with from them at each session: 'How can I get better?' and 'What do you think I can work on and improve?'.
As the coach, I can confidently say that I have thoroughly enjoyed working with this team. We cant wait to get onto the parade and show exactly what this team is made of. We are determined to establish ourselves as the bench mark of this competition through hard, physical work. Although we would never attempt to presume any outcomes, I am confident that everything that this group does on the field, will be done at absolute peak intensity and we will be content with whatever outcome this type of effort produces. 
Go the Roosters!!!
