Junior clubs receive Jet boost

See how the club’s community programs benefit local clubs.

As part of the Newcastle Jets- ‘My Club- program, a family pass has been offered to every junior football club in the local region.

Clubs such as South Wallsend Junior Soccer Club have used the family pass as a raffle prize in order to raise much needed funds. In South Wallsend-s case, the prize was handed out at the club-s Trivia Night on 5 June and the lucky winner was Under-15-s coach Greg Lane.

Almost $2000 was raised for the club to purchase new equipment as around 125 people attended the fun-filled event.

This is just one of the many ways that the Jets are supporting those members of the community who are involved in the grassroots of the game. To read more about the Jets- community programs for the 2010/11 season, please click here.
