Tiger Talk


THE DEN IS CLOSED THIS THURSDAY NIGHT (Snr/Res. training at St Virgils)

From the Membership Director – Aiming High (Target 350)

For those who aren’t familiar with me I’m Joshua Munting and this year I’ve come on board as director for membership and communication. I’m on the youthful side but I have a passion for the HFC having been involved since I was 6 years old (some 17 years). Like many of you we’ve seen highs and lows, but nothing will change our unwavering support of the mighty Hobart Football Club.

I want to see the HFC grow into the next generation, and build upon 70 years of passion and determination which defines our identity. That is why this year we’ve set a high target of 350 financial members of the Hobart Football Club. We need the support of you, not only to sign on but to urge your friends and family to do the same. The club needs to ensure the next generation of people flow through so why not bring someone along to the footy or encourage them to get along. You may know how much the HFC means to you and to others, but why not expand the family and show everyone just how strong this club is.

Let’s smash our new membership target and get 350 financial members in 2017! Membership packages are available at www.hobartfc.com.au/membership or call me on 0458 015 332 to arrange, currently we are sitting at 37 2017 members and I can’t wait to see this figure grow.

Push for Juniors

The HFC recognises the importance of Junior teams in keeping our club sustainable and improving into a level of ongoing success. WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Did you see us on the front page of the paper this week?

We’re making a big push for junior players, offering registration for $65, and we need you to encourage anyone you know who might play to contact Russell Cripps on 0408 493 145 or to turn up to our JUNIOR BEACH REGISTRATION DAY (see flyer – click for full size). PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE AND LET’S GROW OUR GREAT CLUB!

All training for 2017 will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the TCA ground.

Pigskin Warriors Update

The Pigskin Coaching Committee has appointed a dual coaching role for the 2017 season, congratulations to both Heath Walker and Terry Howard. Let’s get behind our co-coaches this year and give them our full support.

Preseason training will be held at Cornelian Bay, Wednesdays at 5.30pm, whilst the cricket season is running. Once the cricket season has wrapped up training will moved to Thursday nights at the TCA. Training this year will commence from 5.30pm.

Registration will be conducted in two parts this year, firstly each player will be required to register online with the Pigskins, using the footyweb (a link to the team will be posted on the Pigskin Facebook page in the next week or so), and secondly subs will be collected by Wade from March.
