After a great run of dates pre-Christmas, footy training is back, and we are ready to rip into it with some serious gusto. The campaign for our 12th Senior flag begins on TUESDAY THE 19TH OF JANUARY at 6:00pm.
Each session will be held on the Collins Oval, which is the front oval on the right-hand side as you drive into the College.
Sessions are held each Tuesday and Thursday.
For those driving, please use the carpark on the left (opposite the tennis courts). Do not use the driveway, or the Garvey carpark, as this is for use by the cricket club.
Please contact Patrick Collins on 0409334932 for further details about training / COVID protocols, or Senior Coach, Phil Plunkett on
0419 548 788.
VAFA CLUBS IN FOCUS PODCAST
In a year full of bad news, we received quite the opposite recently, when we were asked to take part in the VAFA podcast series called "Clubs In Focus".
Nick Armistead and Joe Pignataro from the VAFA have sat down and had a chinwag with Vin Arthur, Pat Mount, Dom Spillane, Peter Brabender, Daniel Spitty and Chris Kandilakis about our great club and you can listen to it here
Help those that help our club. We have so many valuable sponsors, and we'd like to encourage as many people as possible to utilise their services. Whether it's sorting out your finances, grabbing a set of new tyres, or getting some plumbing or electrical work done, our sponsors can offer this and more.
Goto our business directory for everything you need. They will be more than happy to help
CHECK IN ON YOUR MATES
As the dreaded lockdown appears to be over in Victoria and we head off into a COVID normal summer season, it is important to look out for your footy mates and family.
Whilst a best and fairest may not have been crowned this year, you can be the best and fairest by checking in with your mates over this time. A "G'day" may mean all the world.
When we return next year, we look to have some player engagement opportunities so that we can re-connect with our Parade player family.
If you are finding it hard and want someone to talk to over the off season, the committee is here to have a chat. Also Paul Gregor as our Welfare Officer is also more than happy to have a chat on 0417 131 016.
CHRIS BIBBY ELECTED AS PRESIDENT
At our recent Parade Senior & Junior Football Club AGM, Chris Bibby was elected unopposed as the Old Paradians Football Club's 19th President.
Many of you will know Chris as a long-time major sponsor of the club, and a passionate and dedicated Old Paradians supporter, and he now adds president to his footy resume. We welcome 'Bibbs' to the top job.
Greg Schroeders was re-elected as the Junior President, and he will oversee an exciting 2021, as they move into their great new facilities later in the year.
All the Committee positions can be found under the Club Contacts
