On behalf of the Committee, I would like to welcome the new families and players who have joined Jets for Winter 2019, and welcome back to all our existing Club girls and families as well.

Each year Metro Jets have a number of Club events taking place, and we are always looking for more volunteers to assist. The first Major Event for 2019 is our Club BBQ Day at Priceline Stadium on Saturday the 25th of May. This is a Major fundraising event for the Club, we will need donations for raffles, baked goods for sale, and BBQ assistance throughout the day, so any spare time you can offer to assist would be much appreciated. Please contact Laura at

Lastly, a big thank you to all the businesses and families, who have sponsored, or are continuing to sponsor Metro Jets in 2019. The Club is working very hard to promote the development of our players, Coaches and Officials at all levels and age groups, and we could not do this without your support. We encourage all our members to get behind these businesses where possible; our sponsors are advertised on the Club Website, through newsletters and via our social media avenues. Team Sponsorship opportunities for 2019 are also still available, so if you are looking to get involved please contact

See you at the Grand Finals. Go Jets!




Well as another pre season slips quickly by we have come to the stage where we have trimmed our squad to the final twenty players, congratulations to you all. I would also like to congratulate the balance of the original squad who trained hard over the journey and did themselves and the club proud and with such a deep squad to select from our AMND and A1 will be extremely strong.

The final twenty players selected are:

Over the weekend these players participated in the pre season cup where the coaches were able to mix and match a variety of players and positions enabling us to understand firstly where the squad was at and secondly how they performed individually and as a team. With several weeks to go before our first game on May 17th where we hope you all will be to support us we know this year will be tough on our journey to the top four.

On behalf of the Premier League players and coaches we wish you all the best for season 2019 as it approaches quickly.

Kind Regards

Premier League Coach
