All players, supporters and past players are invited to our official season launch (previously known as jumper presentation night) to be held at the Union Hotel in Ascot Vale from 6.30 pm on Monday, 31 March.
We are very pleased to announce that our guest speaker will be David Buttifant, now the High Performance Manager at Carlton FC. David was previously the Sports Science Director at Collingwood for 13 years. Within the AFL community David is particularly well regarded and we are sure his insights and views will be very informative.
As way of expressing our thanks to David, all attendees will be asked to make a small donation to the NICK Foundation: players – gold coin donation, other guests – $5. The Club will also be making a separate contribution.
As well as one of the purposes of the evening being to officially welcome all players for this season, and particularly, our new players, we will also be announcing the Team Captains for all of our four sides.
All players are expected to attend. Meals will be available. The Union Hotel, one of our Club’s generous sponsors, is located at 252 Union Road (cnr of Maribyrnong Rd), Ascot Vale. Use the entrance to the upstairs bistro on Union Road.
