I have been involved at the club for over 10 years, starting as a coach while my son was in Auskick. I was then a manager, runner, water boy - you name it. I entered the committee as Club Coach Coordinator 8 years ago, I then went on to become Vice President and now President.
I am committed to the further development of our club, for all players, members, volunteers and the wider community. We have a strong support team on our committee and it's these dedicated people that work to keep our club strong.
Please do not hesitate to contact me or to speak with me at the club. I look forward to seeing what the Roo's can do this season!
My first interaction with the club was as a young boy, playing 12 years of Junior Football. I then returned with my son 15 years later, when he started Auskick. I began coaching his team from Year 1 and have continued to do so for the last seven years.
My oldest daughter played in the Women’s spring carnivals and my younger sons are playing in Auskick and Mods. The club has a great family culture, focusing on players of all ages and encouraging their siblings, parents & grandparents to come down and to get involved. It’s amazing to be part of a club that offers so many opportunities and so much support to its players and members.
I hope to see you down at this club this season!
Secretary - Michelle Partridge
I’ve been part of the Wanneroo JFC committee since 2017, when my son started his first year in Auskick and I stepped into the Auskick Coordinator role. After three successful years in the Auskick role, I took on the Girls Football Coordinator role in 2020, to help support our young girls in the community.
I love being a part of a Committee that wants nothing more than the best for its members and community. I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to watch our players progress over the years from Auskick and beyond.

I have been around the club for many years, with my brothers playing for the amateur side when I was young, to managing my nephew's team several years ago and most recently, to playing in Wanneroo's first Women's team in 2019.
I interned at the WA Football Commission while I was at university and from there I secured a role in Marketing at a WAFL club. I now work in Advertising but I still have an interest in sport marketing.
I can't recommend teams sports, particularly Football, enough. The friends that I made during that 2019 season are still some of my closest friends today.
