Season 2017 Yearbook now available for purchase

Hello Wildcats and JV families.

Season 2018 is just about to get going, but looking back the Committee has agreed that it would be a good idea to do more as a Club to document and record all of the great things that happen on and off the field. With that in mind, we have gone ahead and prepared an inaugural Yearbook for Season 2017 and hope to make this an annual event going forward.

It has taken us a while to get this done during the off-season, but we are now ready to show you the results.  Go to the following link to take a look:

The Yearbook contains a couple of pages for each of the junior and youth teams (boys and girls), including a team photo, player list, match details, and a coach report.  We also have photos and coach reports for the Auskick age groups.  In addition, we have a report from our president giving details on what went on during the season as well as a list of milestones and player awards and a few other features. Thanks to everyone who contributed.

Although there is undoubtedly room for improvement in both the design and content of the Yearbook (we are very much amateurs!), we hope you agree that it is a good start and provides a great way to remember Season 2017. We hope players, in particular, would appreciate the opportunity to look back at the Yearbook in future years and remember all of the good times they had playing for the Wildcats and the JV teams.

The next stage in the process is to see how many families would like to purchase a printed copy of the Yearbook as a souvenir. The version uploaded on the website is a low-res version, so printed copies will be higher quality and also with a hard cover.  The cost of a printed copy will depend on how many we order – if we get 50 copies printed they will be about $34 each, while if we get 100 copies they will be about $27 each.

So please take a look and see if you would be interested in purchasing a copy. If you would like to get a copy, please email us at recruitment.wildcats@gmail.com to register your interest.  If there is enough interest after a few weeks we will then set up a link for families to purchase a copy and then go ahead with the order.

In the meantime, if you see any errors or omissions in the Yearbook also please email details to the same address as it is not too late to make the necessary edits.

Mobile Mouthguards

Let us introduce convenience and peace of mind to you!

It’s that time of the year again! Sports fields  across Sydney are bracing themselves for the influx of young athletes ready to embark on another season of competitive sport. The burden is greatest on parents who become consumed with the endless hours required to have their children ready for competition.

What if we could eliminate one of these early season choices by coming to you?

Mobile Mouthguards was born of the realization that when it comes to oral protection, the athlete rarely gets what they pay for… We are committed to changing this.

Mobile Mouthguards is a 100% Australian owned and operated business whose mission is to provide the best oral protection available to all athletes. We cater for all sportsmen. From the Junior ranks,  the Aspiring athlete, and ultimately the Professional athlete, they all need protection.

All mouth guards are individually made from a model of the athletes teeth. We take the impressions on site, wherever the athlete may be. The mouthguard is then constructed in our dental laboratory and then issued the following week. That’s right, wherever you or your club is, we come to you!

We are currently proudly suppling the West Tigers, Canterbury Bulldogs, Melbourne Storm, Parramatta Eels, Cronulla Sharks,  North Queensland Cowboys, Manly Sea Eagles and various other NRL teams for the 2017 season, and we would like to offer our unique custom mouthguards to the budding young athletes in your District as well.

Cuts and bruises heal, but teeth do not grow back. Injuries do happen on the sporting field, which is something that we cannot eradicate. However, we can do our best to minimise the impact that this can have on the athlete. All Junior mouthguards are made to specifically allow young teeth to grow throughout the year.

Our mouth guards come in 3 types, light, medium and heavy. The majority of your children will fall into the Light category mouth guard, and adults falling into the medium category.

As a preferred provider to the willoughby wildcats, we are offering an exclusive price of $155 for light mouthguards and $250 for medium mouthguards (all inclusive of gst, custom graphics and colours!)

Payments can be made via cash, direct transfer, eftpos or credit card. A deposit is payable on the day the impression is taken, and must be paid in full on day of issue. An itemized receipt will also be provided.

If you come into our clinic DentalSpot, which is located at 75 Burwood Road, Burwood Heights, you can claim on the spot with your health fund card via our HiCaps terminal.

If you have private health insurance, depending on your level of cover, you might not even be out of pocket!

You can contact your private health insurer and get an exact amount of rebate you can receive.

Please quote the following information.

We look forward to seeing you all very soon, and remember to play hard, play smart and always Guard your Game.
