The kids come first at Palmwoods Warriors Football Club
For over 40 years, the Warriors have been kicking goals for their local community, providing a family-friendly environment that everyone in Palmwoods can enjoy.
It’s a club where skills, characters and friendships flourish; and according to the hard-working club committee, this family-friendly feel is the reason for the club’s success.
“We continually have a growing number of kids join our club and that is due to the history of being a family-friendly club.”
The spirit at Palmwoods is strong. In 2017, the club fielded 23 teams, 3 more than the previous year. And while many sporting clubs struggle to attract volunteers, Palmwoods is bursting with enthusiastic parents happy to help out where they can.
“Without volunteers, the club would not exist. It’s so much easier for everyone when people are happy to give up even half an hour of their time.”
This generosity can be credited to the Warriors’ incredible team spirit. The committee makes sure to meet all parents of the children involved in the club, getting to know them and helping to make sure that they feel involved in the club community.
The result is a family-friendly club, where parents can enjoy the benefits of being a part of a club just as much as the kids.
“When they feel welcome at the grounds, families will come back again and again to support their children while they play; and what kids don’t want that?”
For the Palmwoods Warriors, joining the Good Sports Junior program was a no brainer. Good Sports aligned with their family-friendly club values. It made sense to join a program that was committed to inspiring healthier members and a stronger club community.
After all, local sporting clubs are the training ground for our country’s future champions. Clubs like the Warriors are leading the way, helping to ensure that every junior feels connected and a part of the Palmwoods team.
