In all 20 children participated, including 2 girls, while the parents were encouraged to take part in some of the games and activities.


The Sutherland JRLFC also supported the program and provided registration information to those involved who were not currently playing junior league, while the during the five weeks of the program the parents heard from a dietician, a junior league delegate and received a voucher from Rebel Sport for being a part of Backyard League.


Each participant received a t-shirt, drink bottle and a football.
