After a shortened COVID year in 2020, Newly elected president Dan Hynes, noted his two priorities for 2021 were rebuilding the Lane Cove cats successful Auskick program and establishing a joint venture with North Ryde for our older junior teams. In general discussion it was noted “delegation” was added as a third priority. The presidents role in a club our size is both rewarding and a lot of effort so spreading the love around is crucial.
Auskick was impacted the most last year with a shortened season and concerns about social distancing around the coffee van. In 2021, a renewed focus will be placed on highlighting the many benefits of children participating in Auskick on Sunday mornings. It is noted in AFL circles that a successful junior club comes from a successful Auskick program, so this will surely be a priority for the Cats this year. In addition work has already commenced on a formal JV club between the Cats and North Ryde for age groups 13+. Watch out for more information on this as the year progresses on.
