Thanks to Millsy and Wrighty

Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club would like to thank Rick Mills and Andrew Wright for their service to the Club after they have both stepped down from key coaching positions.

Rick has coached the Development Squad in the EFL Reserves competition in 2016 and 2017.  The boys made finals in both years under Millsy’s guidance but were unable to continue their strong early season form as injuries to key players took their toll.  Rick fully embraced the development aspect of his role and pushed hard for his boys to be rewarded with senior selection.  The depth of the Club’s playing stocks has been clearly enhanced by Rick’s approach to coaching.

Wrighty took on the critical role as our U19’s coach when Andrew Catley stepped down due to work commitments.  Wrighty tackled the role with huge enthusiasm and got the boys through to the Preliminary Final.  Numbers were an issue throughout the year, but this gave Wrighty the opportunity to develop the leadership and versatility of the top age players.  Just as importantly, half a dozen U17’s were blooded in the U19’s during the year which is a great example of our “One Club” approach that will benefit the Hawks for years to come.  Wrighty also filled the role of senior runner throughout the season, which again demonstrates his commitment and enthusiasm.

Many thanks to both Millsy and Wrighty for their work.  We really appreciate their contribution to the Club and hope to see them around in future.

School Holidays “Come and Try” Day for Girls Footy!

Do you know any 10-13 year old girls interested in giving footy a go? Maybe they already play and want to take their game to a new level?

After the success of the recent Girls School Footy Day (which was enthusiastically supported by our club), we would love to see a whole range of 10-13 year old girls join in our school holiday clinic. It is set to be lots of fun and a chance to develop skills and knowledge about our great game.

Check out details on the flyer and register via the link. We can’t wait to see you there!
