Mental Health is an area of life that doesn't discriminate, and it's something that often goes unnoticed at Footy Clubs.
As a club, we want and NEED to do more to help those affected.
As such, the club is extremely excited to announce for 2019 that we will be introducing a Player Welfare Manager in Melissa Adams, mother of current players, James and Jordan. Melissa is an experienced counsellor and mental health worker and is passionate about mental health.
What does this role look like? Over the season the role will evolve but it may involve a casual chat at a home game on a Saturday or something a little more formal, that is up to you.
However the club is committed to this and would like to offer to anyone who does choose to engage with Melissa for a professional counselling service, that the first visit would be free of charge (covered by the club). Strict confidentiality applies and the club would not be provided any details.
In addition Melissa will be promoting how to improve mental health and looks forward to working closely with coaches and players in any capacity.
Just a reminder for all that training starts this Thursday @ 630 on the bottom oval at MKO!
IMPORTANT: with the top oval out of action, we will be exclusively using the bottom oval. However, this is only thanks to the WPHCC Cricket Club who have said that we can train there as long as we don’t interrupt their training. Can everyone please make a conscious effort to stay out of the way of the cricketers. ... See MoreSee Less
Ladies and gents!!! Know it seems only a few weeks ago that we were celebrating 2 PHAFL flags but preseason is only a week away!
With this in mind, have a look at what current Premier Division player Tom Abbott has been upto keeping himself fit, hiking Everest base camp. He isn't doing this just to stay fit however, he is using this "bucket list" adventure to help spread awareness and raise money to find a cure for ataxia telangiectasia.
A-T is a rare motorneuron disease that gives a child a life expectancy of 25 years old with no cure yet found! Before we jump into a new season give this post a share or donate to the cause using below links
