Last Friday, Drummoyne Power Junior Australian Football Club were announced as one of the two finalists for the Sport NSW Community Sport Volunteer Awards for Sport Volunteer Management Awards- Club/Region/District.

They are up against Cudgen Headland SLSC—Surf Life Saving

The NSW Community Sports Volunteer Awards is an all-embracing event that celebrates sporting volunteerism and achievements across the state each year. NSW-based sporting organisations are invited to nominate officials, administrators, coaches and leaders, to ensure the Awards recognise all levels of volunteers in sport.

New South Wales’ most-deserving volunteers will be recognised at an awards ceremony hosted by the Hon. Stuart Ayres, Minister for Sport, in the Strangers’ Room of NSW Parliament House, at 6:30pm on Friday, 19 August 2016.

Sydney City Development Coordinator, Mark Leavy, acknowledged the efforts of the Drummoyne JAFC.

“The club has maintained consecutive years of sustainable growth of its junior and youth teams and most importantly its volunteer base. The collaborative efforts of the club in partnering with AFL NSW/ACT, local schools, community groups and its existing participants has stimulated this growth”, Leavy said.

Over the last five years, Drummoyne Power has doubled in size and now has approximately 500 players from U5—U18, including Youth Girls.

Drummoyne Power relies on more than 80 regular club or team volunteers, with hundreds more drafted into occasional roles and duties, such as BBQ, canteen, jumper washing and match reports.
