The 2020 season is one that we all will remember for many years to come. Let’s recap, March 2020, the season was suspended at the conclusion of round 1 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The season then resumed uninterrupted in June 2020. Adding to this, restrictions imposed by state governments relating to social distancing, lockdowns of non-essential services and border controls for interstate and international travel,
all of which had a significant effect on the commencement, duration and the completion of our season. Certainly, we have all been tested, extending ourselves to embrace change and overcome the challenges.
Well done to our District and Club Management for all the hard work that was going on behind the scenes to get our season started. On behalf of the Clubs Management, thank you to the Players, their Families, Coach Staff, the South Sydney League Office, Ground Staff, Medical Staff, the Referees, Storage King and Southern Embroidery for their continued support.
Coach Staff and Club Volunteers, you are extraordinary individuals, giving of your time. While others work their way towards being different, you strive towards making a difference.
Congratulations to the Under 15s and Coach Staff for delivering a grand final spectacular. Newtown led all through the game, being defeated in the final minutes. Whilst you did not win, Players need to be very proud of their efforts. It is not about the GRAND FINAL; it is more about how you got there. Linda, Tim, Torrence and Ray, thank you for supporting the Players and for your continued support of this Club.
As part of the “Inspiring a Healthier Sporting Nation Program” The Club is now an accredited Level 3.
The year 2020 will be a defining moment in many of our lives, one that we will carry with us for many years to come. Health concerns, financial insecurity, loss of loved ones, isolation, political unrest, have altered the world that we know. The psychological fallout devastating. As I imagine, years from now, we’ll share stories with family and friends about our experience of life in 2020. Stories of heart break for some, perhaps a spring board for something different or better to come for others. What has been positive from this experience is a new sense of appreciation and gratefulness. Sets a new perspective on everything we take for granted – our freedoms, leisure, connections, work, family and friends. Be Safe.
Players and Coach Staff will be able to register from December 01, 2020 for the 2021 season.
Please join me to spread the word, PLAYERS & VOLUNTEERS NEEDED. Let’s grow our Club
All the best to Members enjoying the summer sporting program.
