East Perth Community Coaches Academy

10 Community Youth Football coaches from the Royals District were given the opportunity to further develop their coaching skills alongside WA Football League (WAFL) coaches, Talent Managers and WAFC District Development Staff over the past 6 months. 

Coaches were able to buddy up with a mentor for the duration of the program and took part in a series of professional development sessions that focus on skill development, match-day coaching and club training.
The main aim of the program was to provide an opportunity for community coaches to improve their skills to ensure the standard of community coaching is continually being enhanced to meet the changing needs of the players and the sport itself.

Program organiser, WAFC Metro Central District Operations Manager Scott Faulkner said the program is all about sharing and developing best coaching practice.

“The Community Coach Academy program aims to provide an inner-sanctum experience for youth-aged community coaches, and an opportunity for the sharing of best practice,” Faulkner said.

“Coaches are put through an extensive program that aims to improve all facets of their coaching, from training through to match day.

Round 21 Post-Match Q&A: Willie Rioli

Monday, August 14, 2017 - 3:00 PM - by Jasmine Cookson

Willie Rioli was the star in last weekened’s win against the Swans. He not only managed to put on four goals, but he also treated fans to an exceptional display Rioli magic that we all love to watch. We had a quick chat to the man who added a touch of class to the Royals win on Saturday.

You guys had a really good game today, a really good team effort, what was the mindset going into this week?

Just to play our way and to play the way we know we can play well and win. That was our main focus and we did it today.

You’re a great one-touch player, is that a conscious role you play on your part?

I’m one of the players that doesn’t get much of the ball but when I do get the ball I’m pretty dangerous. That’s just the way I grew up playing footy and I’m pretty reliable around goals and I’m lucky that I kicked a few today.

How do you work with the other boys like Shayne Hille and Julian Ameduri? You look like you fit in well?

Yeah we all play the same sport so we all get around each other and they direct me. I wouldn’t have got those goals if they didn’t put me in the right spot. But I’m happy to be back playing senior footy and going into the finals.

How do you go into the next couple of weeks keeping your form up?

Just doing everything I can to finish off these last few games and hopefully finals. I didn’t have a good run this year with my hamstring so just each week, taking it as it comes and making sure my hamstring is good to go by the weekend.

You guys seem to have an emphasis on playing four quarters of good football, how do you guys make sure you carry that on for the next couple of weeks?

Yeah just to stick to your game plan and it’ll work.

Royals Report Round 19

Monday, July 31, 2017 - 5:15 PM - by Jasmine Cookson

From tall to small, young and old, the Royals produced an absolute classic against the Claremont Tigers last Saturday. Both sides were playing to keep their finals hopes alive and the Royals came out on top, taking home a big win and four crucial points going into next week's derby against West Perth.

East Perth got off to a blistering start with Benjamin Miller kicking the opening goal. Julian Ameduri’s forward pressure paid off, earning him a well-deserved goal off a smothered ball. Then just before the end of the first term Kyle Anderson was paid a 50 meter penalty, putting him within range to boot a long goal just inside the forward 50.

The Tigers came back in the second quarter but could have easily been ahead had they capitalized on their entries going forward. They booted three unanswered goals from strong contested marks, leaving the Royals goalless going into halftime. However, Jonathon Giles and Scott Jones dominated in the ruck, whilst midfielders Stanley Wright, Patrick McGinnity and Julian Ameduri were all impressive around contested balls, clearances and applied solid tackling pressure.

Patrick McGinnity got himself a captain’s goal in the opening of the third term to give his team a good confidence boost. In slippery and cold conditions, both teams seemed to find the scoreboard and went on a strong offensive push. The Tigers kicked four, but the Royals were better and put on six majors. Shayne Hille booted two, whilst debutant Mitchell Dobson put on a textbook display of marking bodywork to boot his first goal in league football.

The last term was an absolute thriller as the sun went down and an afternoon game, turned into a nighttime match. With both teams desperate, the game’s intensity shifted into sixth gear. Even though the Tigers kicked three goals in the last quarter, East Perth responded quickly. Tom Cole laid a tackle on the boundary line just outside the Royals forward 50, and Ben Miller cleaned up a loose ball to then sneak a goal home from long range on the wing. But it was big man Scott Jones, who took a heroic strong mark overhead to seal the game 74 to 70.

The Royals sit two games behind West Perth outside the top 5 on the league ladder. They take on West Perth next week at HBF Arena in another epic derby clash.

Goals: 2 B.Miller, S.Hille, 1 K.Anderson, P.McGinnity, S.Jones, F.McInnes, J.Ameduri, J Giles.

Best: J.Giles, S.Wright, S.Jones, C.Masten, B.Miller.
