OUR CULTURE

We aim to provide a welcoming and supportive environment for everyone to enjoy the beautiful game. Over the season, we run a number of special initiatives to show our support for the community. 

MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

Looking out for eachother, that’s what being part of a club is all about. The last few years have seen us participate in the Ties For Lives Foundation’s SPOTaThon.

In 2018, we raised $735 for their SPOTA Crew mental health first aid program, which helps young people learn the signs of anxiety and depression and where they can get help for themselves or their friends.

PRIDE ROUND

Our annual pride round tradition began in 2015 when we worked with the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission to pilot their Fair Go! Sport program. In 2018, we held our pride round in conjunction with Melbourne University Sport’s Pride in Sport initiative.
