December Club Update


With men’s and women’s pre-season already commencing, things are beginning to ramp up again for the 2023 season! With fantastic numbers on the track for both our men’s and women's teams, we’re very excited about that next season will hold for us.


We have welcomed several new players to the club already and are expecting to add more before the season commences. With strong additions to our mens team, on top of a Grand Final appearance this season, we’re expecting the team to be right up there again in 2023! Our senior women’s team have also welcomed some new players, and after narrowly missing Division One finals this season, we expect that they will be a strong finals teams next season.

We have also added several new under 19s players to improve upon our finals performance this season. With a strong under 19s list and a new under 16s team coming next season, our depth will continue to improve in the years to come. Application are still upon for an under 19s coach for next season with Adam Waugh moving up to take on the role of reserves coach. If you would like to discuss this opportunity, please contract Trent.
