Our first Junior Connexxion Dinner for the season was held 14th December, and once again, it was a well-attended event with the club rooms full of kids and parents.
This night is one for all Rookie ballers, Little League Minor (both Friday and Sunday Teams), Little League Major and Junior League teams.
Our major junior sponsor is Connexxion Business Solutions. They are an IT company based in Canberra, and provide much-valued sponsorship of our junior program. Much of the new equipment at the club purchased this year are from funds generously donated by Connexxion.
The Junior Connexxion Dinner recognizes our Junior teams, and an award was presented to a player from each team as nominated by the coaches. The award recognizes players who represent the core values of our club, not necessarily the best player, but the player who trains well, listens, implements instructions, and displays good sporting behaviour.
The award winners for December 2016 were:
Little League Minor: Peter De Zuba
Little League Minor (Friday): Ben Fox
Little League Minor (Friday): Jack Rettig
Little League Minor: Nils Salomonsson
Little League Major: Jay Henry
Rookie Ball: Owen Roberts and Maddy Burnett
Rookie Ball: Sabian Nuttall
Intermediate: Ethan Williams
Junior League Major: Ryan Todd
Junior League Minor: Peter Somogyi.
All award winners will be eligible for the Junior Connexxion Player of the Year, which is selected at the end of the season, and will receive a sporting voucher on Junior Presentation Night.
Pizza was served to all players on the night…we thank our sponsor Picasso Pizza for providing the food.
Congratulations to all winners on the night, and thanks to Rick for MCing.
