Local Football Clubs
The club supports all the local football clubs in the Hobsons Bay area such as Altona Juniors, Newport Power Juniors, Spotswood Juniors and Williamstown Juniors and Laverton Juniors, not only through annual financial contributions, but also having players from these clubs play in halftime grid games at Williamstown Football Ground on home match days. Nominated players from each junior club are also awarded free Speccie memberships on behalf of the club.
With the removal of the AFL Development League, Williamstown Football Club have attempted to make our connection stronger with all the WRFL local clubs to keep close eye on our whole playing list. With many senior players playing in local football leagues from week to week, we now provide a closer personal connection between both coaching groups.
The Club is a big supporter of all the Hobsons Bay Auskick centres, including Williamstown, Newport, Laverton, Spotswood and Altona. Not only do players and coaches visit these centres for clinics during the year, but also offer the opportunity for these centres to take part in halftime grid games during our home VFL matches at Williamstown Football Club, as well as offering financial support each season. The club in 2018 also offers free NAB footballs and free Speccie memberships to selected kids.
