NEW SENIOR WOMEN'S COACH - MICK MOLINA

We are thrilled to announce Mick Molina as our new Senior Women’s coach for season 2019!

Mick is a past player at the Waverley Blues, a star cricketer and runner, and last year was assistant coach and runner of our Senior Women’s team. By already being familiar with our Club and our Women’s team Mick has already hit the ground running by taking preseason training in Nov/Dec at Wesley College and will kick off the 2019 preseason with the Women’s team on Tuesday and Thursday nights at Pinewood Reserve from 6pm - starting on Tuesday 29th January. The Women’s season is likely to commence in late April. It’s an exciting time to be involved in our Women’s team with the upgraded Pinewood rooms now complete.

Mick will be supported by last years assistant coach Liam Gardner, however the Club is seeking more assistant coaches to help both Mick and Liam. If interested in coaching please contact waverleyblues@efl.org.au . The Waverley Blues supports all coaches by paying for their AFL Level 1 Coaching Course Fees and being involved in our ‘Coach the Coaches’ program led by Senior Coach Bryce McGain.

The Club would also like to say a massive thank you to departing coach Chris Goldstraw who takes a break from coaching in 2019. Chris has single handedly led the success of our Women’s football team from day one in January 2017 (where we had 6 players turn up), leading them to a Grand Final berth in its first season and finals in 2018. We now have a very strong and committed Women’s team who look out for each other both on and off the field and are all becoming great Club people!

If interested in playing or supporting our teams in 2019 please let us know. For more details about player registration refer too: http://wbfc.com.au/player-registration/

Mt Waverley Reserve Facility Update

Reserve.jpg

The Waverley Blues Football Netball Club is excited to let you know that we have secured an election commitment from the State Labor Government, should they be re-elected at the upcoming State Election on 24 November, for $150,000 of funding to be put toward a masterplan for the redevelopment of the facilities at Mount Waverley Reserve.

The continued and recent growth in participation in our male, female and junior age groups towards Tennis, Cricket, Netball and Football has been significant and it is time our facilities reflected this community engagement enabling our clubs to service the demand.

Labor candidate for the seat of Mount Waverley – Matthew Fregon and sitting upper house member for the Eastern Region – Shaun Leane, have secured this funding commitment which will be a critical first step in redeveloping our facilities at Mount Waverley Reserve and securing our future as the community football Club of choice in the eastern suburbs.

Over the last 12-18 months, our Club has been in ongoing dialogue with the Mt Waverley Cricket Club and Mount Waverley Tennis Club about developing a shared vision for a mutually beneficial redevelopment of the sporting and community facilities. Importantly, we have been able to build a strong relationship across all parties and alignment in a vision for a future redevelopment.

When we had the opportunity to engage with Matthew and Shaun in recent months, this collaboratively relationship and shared vision were critical in enabling them to prosecute our position within Government and secure this starter funding.

Subject to the outcome of the election, we will now continue to work together with the State Government, Monash Council and other key stakeholders to develop the master plan and eventually and funding plan for a redeveloped Mount Waverley Reserve.

The Club would like to acknowledge and thank Matthew and Shaun for the proactive way they have engaged with our Clubs. They have done what they said they would do and we now have a clear pathway forward to a securing a redevelopment that will serve our Club and community well into the future.
