BITS Saints calling for juniors to come to sign-on

FOLLOWING a successful season last year there is quite a few youngsters champing at the BITS to get back into Aussie rules.

BITS Saints AFL club's 2013 season is just around the corner and the club is looking for boys and girls to join across all age groups.

BITS Saints junior vice-president John Rann said he was amazed at the level of growth the club had seen in the under 7, 9 and 11s over two years.

"Watching these kids' just running around and having a ball with their mates is awesome," Rann said.

"This is also a great way for parents and guardians to get out and meet new people within the community which is just fantastic for those new to the area."

The junior BITS also had junior representation within the AFL Capricornia League, fielding U13, U15 and U17 teams.

"We have had a change in our coaching ranks this year with Andrew McMahon moving up from the U13s to the U15 position and Steven Brooke joining the U17 team," Rann said.

BITS Saints 2013 sign-on day is at the Tannum Sands Millennium Esplanade on Sunday, starting at 10am. Food and drinks will be available along with a jumping castle for the kids.
