Hearts First XVIII Coach for 2017/18
Sacred Heart congratulates and welcomes Jon Symonds (SHOC 1989) as First XVIII Coach for 2017/18. Jon is well known in SHC footy circles having played at Glenelg and SHOCs. His prior coaching roles have included Glenelg U/19s, Reserves and Assistant League Coach.
Jon has been in senior management in the ANZ Bank for 26 years, where he prided himself on "mentoring" and "developing people and leaders".
We look forward to Jon enhancing the strong football traditions of the College and working with our boys in developing not just their football skills, but assisting their growth into fine young men!
Boys Football Parent Information Evening
We are in the process of organising a Parent Information Evening for any players and parents/carers who would be interested in attending. This will likely be held later this term and will be a great opportunity to meet our new First XVIII Coach, Jon Symonds, who will be delivering information about our program including how we plan to develop our playing group and what our aims and objectives are in 2017 and beyond.
We are still in the process of finalising a date, so please keep an eye on the Sacred Heart College Facebook page (www.facebook.com/shcadelaide) as well as in the next Hearts Newsletter. All details will also be communicated to the players, who are certainly most welcome to attend.
The event will likely be held at the conclusion of an internal trial game on the Sacred Heart College Main Oval and players and parents/carers will have an opportunity to take an informal tour of the new facilities, before gathering in the Function Centre to hear Jon speak and an opportunity to ask questions will be provided.
Parents/carers and players from all grades are welcome to attend.
Stay tuned for confirmation over the next few weeks.
