Boronia Hawks are very pleased let all our supporters know that Samantha Dunkinson has been nominated for the AFL’s AUSKICK VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR AWARD. #auskickvoty #boroniahawks
Sam is our Junior Vice-President and took on the role of Boronia Auskick Co-ordinator at the start of this year. Boronia Auskick has gone from strength to strength under her guidance, with 105 registered players getting out for a kick on Friday nights at Tormore Reserve.
Sam has got it all running smoothly, reflecting her training as a teacher. Parents are getting involved in running the groups and we have senior players from both our men’s and women’s teams actively involved in helping the kids to develop their skills.
Sam has brought an enormous passion and commitment to Boronia Auskick, resulting in some great initiatives. She has brought sponsors Boronia McDonalds and Lipari Pizza on board to assist with funding of new equipment including footballs and water bottles. Sam has also introduced a Sensory Space to assist the kids who might get a little overwhelmed by everything and just need a quiet spot for a while.
Sam’s contribution to the Boronia Auskick has seen a real boost to our junior numbers with many Auskickers also choosing to play junior footy with Boronia Hawks. Our two new Under 8’s teams are a direct result of the boost to our Auskick program over the past two years.
Well done Sam! We congratulate you on your well deserved nomination and wish you well when the awards are announced. You are already a winner in our eyes!
What a brilliant year for Hayden Landy! Early in the season he was given the honour of being appointed as captain of the @boroniahawks Under 14’s. He went on to lead the team to a sensational Premiership victory, the Club’s first Under 14’s flag since 2003! Hayden then won the Club’s Under 14’s Best and Fairest, joining an outstanding list of former winners including Deacon Kimmitt, Mason Storr, Harvey Chinn and Harry Burgess. To top it all off, Hayden was last night night announced as runner-up in the Under 14D EFL Best and Fairest!
Congratulations on a great season Hayden. We can’t wait to see you in action for the Hawka in the coming years!
Congratulations to all our junior players on completing a terrific year with Boronia Hawks in season 2018! We hope you all played some good footy, learned some new skills and had a lot of laughs with your team mates.
Here is the list of players recognised for their efforts as part of our teams at our recent Awards Nights:
