Stratco Community Program re-cap for the 2013/14 season


A review of some of the Stratco Community Program appearances we did during the 2013/14 season.

With the players now on holidays and re-energising for the 2014/15 season, here-s a review of some of the Stratco Community Program appearances we did during the 2013/14 season:

We joined Nazareth Catholic Community Primary Campus for their Healthy Day, where Cassio, Nigel Boogaard and Bruce Djite joined in different activities with all the kids including basketball, cricket and of course football.

A sell out of the January School Holiday Clinic, saw over 120 kids in attendance. They were coached by the Reds on Coopers Stadium and were visited by Nova 919 and Stratco to provide give-a-ways to each participant on the day.

We also visited the Starlight Express Room at the Women-s and Children-s Hospital. Eugene Galekovic, Nigel Boogaard, Tarek Elrich, Cameron Watson and Michael Zullo competed in various video games on Wii, PlayStation and other computer challenges. They were outdone by the kids and have a long way to go to get their skills up to speed!

The Spanish boys went back to Spanish Classes at Temple Christian College. The students were able to speak to the players in Spanish and interviewed them for the lesson. They then held a Quiz Show with each player hosting a table. Cirio-s team were the eventual winners!

Local clubs were also visited throughout the season including Salisbury United where the players attended their Gala Carnival, Stirling Districts SC at Bradwood Park where we officially opened their artificial training pitch. We also visited numerous other local clubs.

We had Nigel Boogaard, Jordan Elsey, Fabio Ferreira, Isaias and Jacob Melling all attend the Phoneix Cup. This cup is a carnival held by Modbury Amateurs Soccer Club for people with disabilities involved with the Phoneix Society, which had over 180 participants. The players also had the honor of presenting the trophies at the end of the day.

These were but a few of the visits the Reds attended as part of the Stratco Community Program with other attendances at The Childhood Cancer Association, Heart Foundation & Lock in the Love, we also had clubs and schools come to visit us at training from as far as Brisbane to learn all about the different opportunities working in a sporting environment.
