Benalla will enter two teams in both the under-14 and under-16 competitions.
League spokesperson Geoff Hill said the teams were finalised following the final hit-out.
‘‘We are really pleased with how preparations for the season have gone and both clubs are looking forward to their first game this Saturday at the Benalla Showgrounds,’’ Hill said.
‘‘While we have had good numbers in each of the teams, there is still an opportunity for new players to register and be a part of the action.’’
Training will be held on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 4.30
All registered players will receive socks, shorts and a polo top as part of their $100 registration.
Round one of the season will start this Saturday at Benalla Showgrounds with the two new Benalla clubs going head to head.
Both the Giants and the Bulldogs will play eight home games in Benalla and eight away games.
Entry to the game is free, and the Benalla Racing Club has kindly agreed to donate meat for the barbecue to help get the season off to a fantastic start.
