Junior Dolphins News

THE Redcliffe Keystar juniors will wear a new design in jersey next season. The distinctive look will bring the 800 plus Dolphin juniors into line with the senior grades. Club junior development officer Grant Cleal said more than 700 jerseys had been ordered. "Our juniors will be completely identifiable with our seniors in not only their jerseys but also shorts and socks," he said. "The only difference will be in the sponsors' badges. The jerseys are even made of the same material." The unique red and white design has been a hit with the senior Dolphins with many critics rating their jersey the most eye-catching in televised Queensland Cup matches. The junior jersey will feature the logo of sponsor Keystar Motors, who next season begin the second year of their backing for the club. The club's juniors this year completed another successful season with close to a record participation in the finals series. Sign-on for next season will be held at Dolphin Oval on Sunday, February 11.

THE Redcliffe Junior Dolphins coaching team for the 2007 season has been announced. The first assignment for our coaches will be to attend a two-day camp on the Sunshine Coast. The camp was conducted at the beginning of 2006 with all gaining valuable knowledge for the coaching year which lay ahead. Coaching staff from the Broncos, along with senior coaches from our own premiership-winning senior staff, will be on hand over the weekend. Coaches are still required in the under seven, eight, nine, 10 and 13 teams. If you would like to give junior coaching a try, the club will cover the cost of any course you attend. Contact Grant Cleal on 3203 7333 if you are interested. Some early trial games have been organised for the under 14, 15, and 16 teams at Cudgen in February. Training for these age groups will start early in the New Year. Any boys wanting to participate in these games are advised to contact Grant Cleal at the club for information on training details.
