Indigenous Jumpers for Cottesloe Football Club

About our Club
The Cottesloe Amateur Football Club Inc. "Cottesloe Roosters" is one of the newest additions to amateur football in Western Australia, having been admitted to the Perth Football League for the 2014 playing season.

In 2015, our mighty Bloods Team (Reserves) made history as the first ever Cottesloe Roosters Premiers. The Cottesloe Roosters enjoyed another successful year in 2016, with the Blues Team (League) playing in the grand final elevating the Cottesloe Roosters to C3 in 2017. In their inaugural 2016 playing season, the new Roosters under 15's team (established in conjunction with Cottesloe Magpies Junior Football Club) won their grand final. In 2018 Cottesloe Roosters' first ever Women's team, The Hens, became the Inaugural Women's B Grade Premiers. They have seen significant growth in player interest with the addition of a second team in 2021.

The Club's home ground is located at Cottesloe Oval on the corner of Broome and Jarrad Street, overlooking the ocean just above Cottesloe beach (Mudurup).

About our Campaign
Cottesloe Amateur Football Club has had its first Indigenous jumper designed to be worn during our Indigenous Round on July 17th, 2021. The jumper has been specially designed by some of the Indigenous leaders at the club to share and celebrate Indigenous culture. To be able to wear this jumper means a lot to all of the players in our club and is an important representation of how much we respect and value our Indigenous players and their cultures. 

The creation of this jumper was a player led initiative championed by Zachary Green, Jasmine Bin Omar and Taylor Hayward who worked for several months to create a jumper that signified what it means to have Indigenous representation at the club.

"We want to be able to show everyone how special our culture is and letting you know our culture is your culture as well." - Zachary Green, Gunditjamara and Palawa.

The final design tells the story of coming together and shared community. The four outer circles leading to the inner circle and rooster foot, represent the different meeting places from which our players come and the journeys they have taken to get to Cottesloe Football Cub. The symbols on each side of the rooster's foot signify the men and women of the club being supported through Cottesloe's one club mentality, with the men supporting the women and the women supporting the men. The back of the jumper includes the names of every Indigenous player’s (past and present) mob to acknowledge the contribution they have made to Cottesloe Football Club and what it is today. 

We are calling upon our community to help us bring these jumpers to life. Any funds raised over our target will be used to fund other cultural practices during our Indigenous Round and combined with other fundraising efforts to give as a donation to an organisation chosen by our club's Indigenous leaders. Please donate what you can and share with your friends and family.
