Toongabbie Sports Club Junior Sports Stars Awards

Dr HUGH McDERMOTT ( Prospect ) ( 13:34 ): I acknowledge the tenth Junior Sports Stars Awards held at Toongabbie Sports Club on Sunday 6 November 2016. The awards are designed to recognise the achievements of local sporting stars within their own fraternity and the broader community, and to encourage and support their development with prizes to ensure their ongoing access to local sports. All children are recognised on the day and many had fantastic stories to share. Toongabbie Sports Club directly supports nearly 2,500 local sporting participants, with no less than 10 different sporting bodies. The club invested $150,000 in sports in 2016.

Access to sports can be difficult for many in the community and this event is designed to encourage our local community to remain engaged. I recognise the tireless volunteers who keep our local sporting bodies functioning for the benefit of our community. A great many people give significant time to enable regular competitions to get off the ground. Without them many would not have access to a local sporting team. I congratulate and thank the board, staff and members of the Toongabbie Sports Club for their dedication to our community
