New Junior Rugby League Club destined for coast.

Calling all mini/mods and international rugby league players for the 2013 season.

The spirit of OOPAL is alive and kicking!!! The mighty Emu is back!

A meeting last week was strongly attended and a unanimous vote was passed to push forward to develop a Junior Rugby League club at Emu Park.

Since this initial meeting a dedicated group of people has shown commitment to get this club up and running.

This dedicated committee is led by President - Justin Loomans and Vice president - Vince Pheely .

The newly formed committee has decided to honour the past senior players of Emu Park Rugby League and continue with the main colours of red and white and the Emu mascot, since named OOPAL (Aboriginal for roaming emus).

We have been overwhelmed with the interest this new club is generating and the support of local families and businesses.

Whilst we are still waiting for final confirmation pending our Incorporation, all Rocky Junior League Clubs have shown their verbal support in our application.

To kick start this wonderful family oriented club, there will be a launch and sign up day on Sunday 24th November at Bicentennial Park, Emu Park from 10am to 1pm.

All potential players are invited to enjoy a free sausage sizzle and kids rides and entertainment. Please bring along 2 copies of children's birth certificates and health care cards(if applicable).

We are also looking for expressions of interest for coaches, managers, FAOS and any other interested people.

If you cannot attend this launch then please check out our facebook page or email on emuparkjrl@hotmail.com
