Inaugural Sports President evening a great success

Joanne Ryan, yesterday, launched her inaugural Sports President evening at the Werribee Football Club.

‘As a netball coach and through the various sporting activities of my sons, I know it is important to recognise the vital work by so many volunteers, to make our local sporting clubs the success they are’.

From serving on the committee, to arranging rosters, maintaining our sporting facilities, running club fundraisers, collecting fees and ensuring sporting equipment and uniforms are in tip top condition, our local clubs are so well served by many volunteers.

The evening was an opportunity for local clubs to hear from Justin Madden, former AFL great and former Minister for Sport and the Commonwealth Games about the enormous value of sport and participation.

Joanne Ryan asked sporting clubs to think making a nomination for her annual volunteer awards.

The evening was also an opportunity to make a presentation to the latest Local Sporting Champions, a special award to recognise and assist for young athletes to achieve. The following young athletes were successful in Lalor.

  • Zac Anthony competing in the Australian Junior Volleyball Championships
  • Jacob Bosnjakovic competing in the Australian IRB Surf Championships
  • Jesse Corbett competing in the Australian BMX titles
  • Wesley Dejong competing in the Australian School Baseball championships

  • Bradon Te Hiko competing in the Australian BMX titles
  • Amanda Tessari competing in the Australian Youth Girls Football Championships

We wish these young athletes all the best in their various competitions and know they will great representatives of our local area.
