According to Club President Eric Mahony, the Wolves are focused on looking back at it's roots, with legacy members Peter Morris and Hanna Healy heading the first grade and Women's league tag teams, respectively.
"We're bringing forward two long term families who have been involved with the club to be involved in the coaching, Peter Morris whose father played- there's a three generational contribution to the club with his son Eli playing," Mahony said.
"Hannah Healy, whose family's also had a long history with the club with her father Charlie Healy played with us."
The club have also confirmed they will be playing in both Group 10 and 11 of the Peter McDonald Premiership, but have shared their concerns over the potential amount of travel that will be involved next season.
"One of our primary concerns is the feasibility of traveling to Nyngan to play them in an away game, with a five hour trip each way and four hours of football," Mahony said.
"We can end up having under eighteens playing the full game and then backing up for first grade and it's a big ask for them to get back on the road at the end of the day, and travel five hours."
"Structurally, that's a challenge for us to the competition, but we're working with the team and people were hoping we can get some solutions there."
Mahony said the other goals the club have are similar to the previous season, which are building the strength of the team and the support of the region.
"We're looking to build on our supporter base. We had a really strong supporter base last year," Mahony said.
"We're again asking our local people to come in and support the wolves."
Mahony said he is excited about the dynamic of team in 2024 as fresh blood moves up in the ranks.
"We got some very exciting young talent coming through from the under 18's in the first grade this year," Mahony said.
Mahony said futher announcements for the upcoming season will be made in the near-future.
