My name is Jett and I live and breathe AFL. I have been playing for my club in Townsville Hermit Park Tigers AFC since I was 6. Last season I had the honour of being voted team captain for my side and we made it all the way to the grand final. I also participate in the local league as a Boundary Umpire and help out with my brother's Under 9 side; I cannot get enough footy!
Last year I represented North Queensland in the 10-12 Years Australian Football State Championships held in Brisbane in June, as well as the year before in Mackay. At the 2018 championships I was honoured to be named Captain of our team. I took this job seriously and provided guidance to those younger and less experienced on the side. At the completion of the competition I was fortunate to be awarded the Regional Player of the Championship trophy.
I am also extremely proud and excited to say I was then selected to be in the 2018 Queensland Blaze 10-12 Years AFL team and competed in the 2018 National Championships held in Canberra in August 2018. Qld finished 2nd overall and this was an amazing experience.
I have now been selected in the 13-15 Years North Queensland representative team and we are to compete in the Australian Football State Championships being held on the Gold Coast in May 2019.
My family and I will be undertaking some fundraising activities locally and have also established what is essentially this "Go Fund Me" page - however all donations over $2 are tax deductible!!
Any amount donated will be gratefully accepted, no amount is too small as every little bit will be very helpful in helping me attend these championships. Thank you for your consideration.
Best of luck mate! The Malone family are behind you!
