2015 saw our tenth summer of footy and one of our best.
Across the summer, we had 84 children participate in the program. The total is 35 more than we had in 2014 – and our 2nd best total in the 10 year history of the program Participants ranged from 5 years old to 16 years old, with an average age of 9 years old (we had roughly equal participation of those ages 5-9 and those ages 10-16), 20 of our participants (nearly 25%) were girls. On a weekly basis, we averaged 40 participants (10+ more than last year). Our most well-attended session saw 60 children participate.
While the numbers are great. It was also great to have awesome coaches and volunteers helping us out. Thank you to everyone who helped out coaching, taking photos, cooking hotdogs, running registration, washing uniforms and bringing snacks.
We are very grateful to the support we received from the Carlton Football Club and Transurban. Our 2015 raffle winners took home two great prizes, a signed Carlton jersey and tickets to see the Nats play the Phillies.
