President’s Report: Grand Final Wrap Up

Hi all Sharks,

It’s Sunday night at 10:00pm on the 27th August and I’m sitting outside at my writing desk fending off the cold air.  I’m committing pen to paper and I realise I’m stuffed. Yep, I’ve had it.  I, I, I am emotionally drained.  There again, so are probably another 150 or 160 proud Parents from today’s Grand Finals.  At the mention of the word, “Grand Final” I start to tingle and feel alive again.  Thank you to all our Players and Parents of our Grand Finalists for a truly memorable day.  You played so well and put everything on the line, hence why we feel we’ve been on a number of roller coasters.  Continue Reading

President’s Report: Round 13

Hi all Sharks,

Round 13 completed on a wonderful winter’s day with sunshine for most of it.   It seemed to be a weekend for Milestones at the matches that I attended.   Five boys played their 100th games and smashed through banners made with love.   Well done and congratulations to all milestone games played by the boys.   At next week’s burger night we will have 50 game medals and 100 game trophies to hand out from the 18th of June onwards.   Those that may occur during finals will be handed out at presentation day on the 10th of September.  Continue Reading

President’s Report: Round 12

Hi All Sharks,

Congratulations to the Mums and Dads who turned up for our annual Social Evening.  This year we returned to “Rosebank” in North Ringwood and it certainly offered an environment of sophistication.  There were plenty of various dishes offered during the course of the evening and having two bars open led to fast service.  The noise grew during the evening and the laughter was at fever pitch!  A fun night had by all.  Thanks to the nearly 100 in attendance for braving the cold evening.  Continue Reading

President’s Report: Round 11

Hi All Sharks,

I trust all Players, Mums and Dads enjoyed their break over the holidays.  I know the committee welcomed the chance to charge their batteries and put their feet up for a few days.  Well, hasn’t time flown we are into out last month of home and away games before the finals commence on the 13th August.  So much to do, so little time!  Continue Reading

President’s Report: Round 10

Hi All Sharks,

By golly, it was certainly a cold morning last Sunday.  I was at Warrandyte at 8:30am and had watched the temperature in the car drop on the drive from home down to -2 degrees.  Warrandyte oval was a picture perfect white blanket, all I needed was my snow skis.  Continue Reading

President’s Report: Round 9

Hi All Sharks,

I observed some wonderful football matches over the weekend.  They were close, tough encounters whilst played in good spirit.  It’s amazing how the game of football can teach many of life’s lessons.  Caring for your team mates, participating in a team environment, respecting our opposition through to following rules.  Society is no different, participation, looking out for others, obeying regulations and displaying respect.  Emotion however, can sometimes take over rational thinking.  This coupled with perception can lead to incidents occurring which is out of character for most people.  Continue Reading
