Secondary School's Battle for AFL Sportsready Cup Honours

Monday, May 05, 2014

Term 2 of the winter sports calendar is about to begin, with secondary schools battling out to become AFL SportsReady Cup Champions. The Western Australian Football Commission and School Sport WA have worked in close partnership for 26 years to deliver a quality competition and have continued the cooperative links between schools and the community.

2014 sees a number of new schools on board chasing “AFL SPORTSREADY CUP” HONOURS across three divisions. Clontarf Aboriginal College are looking for a three peat of flags in the Cable Division. Can they match the success they had from 2005 to 2007? Will Corpus Christi College make it two in a row as Jakovich Division Premiers? and Newton Moore SHS will be back to defend their Billy Walker Division crown.

The AFL Sports Ready Cup offers a well organised, efficient and high quality football competition. A competition of this size requires major support. The WAFC, School Sport WA and AFL SportsReady are proud to cater for over 3000 students from right across Western Australia. 

One feature of the AFL SportsReady Cup program has been the opportunity to name patrons for our competition divisions. WA legends Barry Cable, Billy Walker, Ross Glendinning and Glen Jakovich proudly support this concept and thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to attend school fixtures. 

85 Senior High Schools will compete together in their respective divisions from Kununurra to Esperance, with the pinnacle of the program the “Cable Division” Grand Final show cased as a curtain raiser to the Fremantle v Carton clash on Thursday July 31st  

AFL SportsReady is a proud partner of the AFL SportsReady Cup,  working with over 700 premier sporting clubs and businesses across Australia, to ensure young trainees who are keen to kick-start their careers can access quality education and future job opportunities

We wish all teams a rewarding year in the AFL SportsReady Cup competition and thank all school staff who have taken on the roles as coaches and managers.
