Player Development Program introduced for 2016


We hope you are enjoying the 2016 season.  We have made many changes within the Club this year to enable us to continue to foster a safe and inclusive environment for all players, spectators, supporters and members of the St Mary’s Sporting Club and promote football and netball through our Club, at all levels and throughout the Geelong Region.

As always our goal remains the same – to provide an affordable and inclusive sporting opportunity for families, players and supporters of Football and Netball that encourages community participation at all levels.

A significant development this year is the St Mary’s Sporting Club Player Development Program, supported by Tony Costa and Family.  The Club identifies our player development as a high priority and extremely important for the individual and the entire Club.

In setting up the Program the Club acknowledges the responsibility it has to all players, at all levels, and the role the Club has in giving every player the best opportunity to maximise their skills in sport, and more importantly, give them support to develop life skills, especially during the years when our players develop from teenagers to young adults.
