DRIVING INCENTIVE FOR THE HAWKS
FOR BOYS AND GIRLS
Morwell East, in an effort to attract junior players have a plan to offer players (eligible) to have half price driving lessons as well as picking up a free lesson each week as part of their best player awards. The club are in competition with the age groups with Morwell and a host of other clubs fighting for players in the under 16 and Under 18 age groups. The "driving lessions" are a good incentive for any boys/girls wanting to play football and netball and also learning to drive.
The updated MGFL constitition is now available to view under the 'administration' menu.
