Presidents News September 2017
Congratulations to all teams and our Auskick group on a fantastic and successful 2017 Season. The Club had a record number of players, teams and volunteers in 2017 and we should be very proud of our many achievements as a leading Community Club. Our first year of stand-alone girls teams has exceeded all expectations.
A fantastic effort by the 13 teams in under 11 through to under 18 that qualified for the final series and a special shout out to the 10 teams who have qualified for the 2017 Sydney Juniors Grand Final Day being played this Sunday at Macquarie University.
Please try to head down to the Macquarie University to cheer on the Wildcats and our Joint Venture teams. Macquarie University playing fields are located on the corner of Culloden Rd & Talavera Rd, Macquarie Park.
We wish all teams the best of luck – may the best team win!

Gore Hill Update
Council are taking over the Gore Hill site on Monday 18th September 2017 for the oval realignment and synthetic upgrade. At this stage we expect to return to GHO for season 2019.
Social Night a huge success
It was great to see so many at the Wildcats Social Night on 12 August. This event is run every year by the Under 11 age group and 2017 was another great success. Many thanks to all who attended, donated items and purchased items. The focus is on ‘fun-raising’ rather than ‘fund-raising’ and it was great to see both were achieved this year. Well done to the U11 social team – you know who you are!
A huge thanks to all who assisted at training, on game day running messages, running water, umpiring, cutting oranges, flipping sausages, running the canteen, providing snakes, operating the scoreboard, nursing the injuries, transporting, just cheering – as well as the many off field roles across the club. The teams and Club cannot survive without you. Hope you and your players had a great experience and will be back again next year.
Thanks also to our sponsors Dixon Advisory, Mirvac and Oak Milk – please support these great businesses for their generous support of the club.
Finally a message from the head of the Sydney Juniors Regional Committee.
Go the Wildcats!
