As a Club we would just like to say a huge Thankyou to everyone who played this year, from our U5’s right up to our O35’s. Every Coach, Parent, Supporter, Friends, Family, board members and Sponsors who made this year so successful. Without you, the club would not be what it is.
We had 6 teams compete for Grand Finals and all 6 won. An incredible effort from everyone.
Our player registration numbers grew to almost 500 registered players and we have finally completed our 3 year re-brand, with every team now playing in our new strip.
We introduced a new President, Treasurer, 1st Grade Men’s coach, 1st Grade Women’s coach and many other changes, as well as integrating them with already amazing people who have been involved in our club.
Everyone who has played a part in this proud club is what makes The Park so great! You are Henwood Park. Thankyou!
Enjoy 2017 and we cannot wait to see you back in the Red, White and Blue in 2018!
Henwood Park have been allocated a 5 week period to be on duty for the small sided games at Duke of Kent. This includes the running of a simple canteen and BBQ, setting–up and packing-up.
The club requires our small sided teams (parents and supporters) to lend a hand with the running of the canteen (and some set-up or pack-up). It will only involve each of the teams providing a minimum of 3 volunteers over a 2 hour period on one of the Saturdays.
Please note that the money raised at these canteens goes directly to our club.
I have prepared the following roster:
Henwood Park Canteen Roster 2017
8:15am – 10:15am Including set-up
6 Blue Hawks
6 Red Wings
10:15am – 12:15pm
11 Hawks & 11 Eagles
12:15pm – 2:15pm
It is requested that each team provide a minimum of 3 volunteers (over the age of 18) to help run the canteen across the full 2 hours. This will include serving in the canteen and also cooking the BBQ. Please arrive at least 5 minutes prior to your allotted time.
Please email once you have organised volunteers from your teams so I can ensure we will have sufficient numbers for each time. If any volunteers would like to assist in the organisation of the canteen (ordering and preparing stock, etc) over the 5 week period, please contact me. Your assistance in helping the club perform this duty would be greatly appreciated.

Registrations for 2017 are NOW OPEN, and Henwood Park Football Club is the perfect club to sign your youngster up to play MiniRoos Football.
Here’s 11 reason why MiniRoos is the perfect starting platform for your future Ronaldo or Messi:
1. It’s great for their health & fitness
Taking part in football, like any sport, is great to keep kids active. It will probably also tucker them out by then end of the day which means you might get to pick the Saturday night movie.
2. They’ll feel good
Regardless of whether they win, lose or draw (we don’t keep a ladder in MiniRoos!), kids will feel good after a football game.
3. Football builds self confidence & character
Team sport gives children the opportunity to express themselves, and encourages verbal interaction with teammates to achieve a common goal.
4. Develops your child’s friendships (and your own!)
Football teams are made up of children from everywhere – different schools, suburbs, and cultures – it’s the world game, loved by families everywhere. Whilst on the sidelines is a good way to have a chat with like-minded parents over a coffee from the club canteen.
5. Helps them learn respect & fair play
Kids will have to take instructions from their coach at training and during the match. Hand shakes at the end of the game encourages respect.
6. Seek advice and knowledge from all around you
You will always be learning in football. Use those around you to further grow your knowledge of the game.
7. They’ll be less stressed
Playing sport has been proven to reduce stress levels.
8. Increases energy levels, reduces fatigue
Children who are more active will have increased attention spans and energy levels.
9. It builds skills
Football can increase coordination through ball control, improve reflexes and enhances cognitive functioning.
10. Football teaches life lessons
In a safe environment, young footballers will learn from failure. They’ll also be taught about both winning and losing.
11. They’ll have fun
There’s nothing more pleasing than seeing a smile on your child’s face, and these are everywhere on football fields around Australia!
