The Ballarat FNL Junior Interleague Program is back this weekend
for another season and we are looking for club assistance at our
upcoming carnivals to assist players with strapping and on-field
care if required.
The Ballarat FNL requires the help of all clubs with our interleague
program as the League does not have the resources to provide this
assistance to players. In the end players competing across the pro-
grams are your club’s players and we ask that ALL clubs share the
load when it comes to providing trainers.
With programs in Sunbury and Ballarat this year, we have allocat- 7a Grant Street 3340
ed clubs to a specific carnival. It will be required that your club will
provide at least ONE trainer to the specific carnival as listed below: Bacchus Marsh
