New Club playing & training uniform

Next season we are introducing new Club playing and training shirts for the Juniors (Mixed) and Seniors. The Girls had a very successful new playing uniform in 2021/22. We have gone out to our people to get their preferences on a choice of:

  • 3 x playing shirt designs – ranging from a Darug Custodian Aboriginal Corporation approved Indigenous theme to get a shared theme across the whole Club to a standard design
  • 2 x training shirts again ranging from DCAC approved Indigenous theme to a standard design
  • We are also developing a spectacular Indigenous design for our Volunteers that is given to our Volunteers to say ‘thank you’

The Survey has gone out via email and responses are coming in. Voting closed on Sunday 25th February. Once voting closes and our Club Executive approves the final design we will share the results with you – stay tuned.
