Northern Lights Club Song + Lyrics

  • Hits: 279

FlyingBulldogSide by side we play with pride, 

We are the Northern Lights

Eagles Fly, With a Bulldog bite

We are the Northern Lights

When it gets rough we show our stuff

And we tough, tough, tough, till they've had enough

For we never ever ever give up the fight,

We're the mighty Northern Lights,

(Here's a reminder)

We're The mighty Northern Lights

(We played a Blinder!)

We're the Mighty Northern Lgihts!

An Open Letter To The Eagles Family

  • Hits: 578

EaglesRoundLogo

Dear Everyone at the Eagles

You know what? I love this club.

I love seeing kids playing footy. I love how it makes them happy when they learn a skill. I love it when they figure out how to kick better, and when that kid up the back surprises you with a tackle, or a handpass or sells a bit of foot candy to kick a goal.

I love seeing a kid come over from soccer to play AFL and having the time of their lives using their arms for the first time. Or coming from rugby and being able to run in any direction they like! Amazing!

I love seeing our best players go on and succeed at the academy or rep sides, and I love watching our battlers keep going every week, and getting better at the game. I love watching them after the game line up for a sausage, and  the look on their faces when you say no to another bag of lollies.

Or yes sometimes even.

I love that the club has some really great people keeping it afloat – people I consider my good friends. You all see our amazing coaches and managers every weekend, but I’ve also been on the committee for a few years now, and we have done an amazing and award - winning job of making our club the most awesome in Sydney.

Maybe because it’s all run so smoothly for so many years, we’ve kept it hidden of how much work it takes.

We are now down to an all time low for numbers for our 2015 committee, and we're barely scraping through. Which is why that same bunch of tired faces are the ones running the barbie, or handing out jerseys or finding new sponsors or sending the emails or contacting the newspapers or putting up the goal posts.

We’re all busy. Life with kids is busy. But anytime I tap someone on the shoulder to ask someone to take on a job, their faces light up, and they’re happy to help.

Is it we’re all just a great bunch of parents just waiting to be asked?

Please don’t wait anymore. We are asking urgently now at the Eagles, because we really, really need your help. We need more people on the committee, so the people on it now aren’t covering three jobs each.  You don’t have to know  anything about AFL – I sure didn’t. You don’t need to give up your life – we need a few people that can give a few hours. Maybe you have some skills to offer - Maybe we can teach you - I don't know - but I do know we need help. 

Whether you’re in the 15s and seen it all over the years, or a first time Auskicker who’s never been involved in a club before – we need your help. On game day, and even more so during the week, we need your help. It’s fun and rewarding, for all the things listed above.  And in the end with out all us parents doing our bit – we don’t have a club. Seriously – can’t say it any clearer – The Eagles need your help.

To those of you already on the committee, or coaching, or volunteering - we thank you. For those on the sidelines - If any of this rings half true for you, please don’t think about it later. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and let us put you to work, helping keep the Eagles the best Junior AFL club in Sydney. The Eagles need your help.  

Thanks - we look forward to having you on board.

Cheers -and go the Eagles
