Woodside & District Football Netball Club, better known as 'the Woodside Wildcats' have been in operation since 2008 after separating from the Allies in the Alberton League. Woodside is situated approximately 220km south west of Melbourne in the Gippsland region of Victoria. The Woodside Wildcats and now in their 9th year with the North Gippsland Football Netball League and have about 150 members and are competitive in both netball and football. We field senior, Reserves and Third football teams, as well as Junior teams. The Wildcats also have a strong netball affiliation, having teams for each A, B, C and D grade level as well as Under 17 and U15. The Wildcats also have an U15 team that play in the Sale League. WDFNC are a family friendly club who are inclusive of all abilities and encouraged active participation in the Club.
Value to the Community
We provided dinners to players and members on training nights and are very active in social events to bring our Club members together. We help with community needs, such as meals on wheels and have themed some of our home games to raise money and awareness for different causes, such as cystic fibrosis and breast cancer. The WDFNC has an important partnership with the Wulgunggo Ngalu Learning Place - a joint initiative of the Victorian Government and the indigenous community. Opened in September 2008 at the former Won Wron Prison site in Gippsland, it is a culturally appropriate 'learning place' for indigenous men undertaking community based orders. Residents participate in club activities and benefit from reintegration into community life. Country football and netball unpins what our community spirit is about. The locals thrive on supporting their team, especially a home game, coming down to the Recreation Reserve.
Why the funds are needed
We are seeking additional funding to help our netball girls update the netball courts. The lines on the court are very faded and need repainting on the surface. It is difficult to distinguish between the boundary and third lines. Having the lines repainted will give the sriufaces a fresh look and make it a lot easier for players to see where they have to be! Any money left over will go towards updating equipment for the netballers, including new netballs for training (preferably ones that hold air and don't have eggs!) and additional equipment to help with training sessions, such as coloured cones and balance sticks to help with movement and footwork. A lot of our money is directed towards the footballers and it would be nice for the netballers to have a win!
