Hobart Tigers FC – A letter from the President

Season 2015 has come to a close for the Hobart Junior Football Club.

Finals are over, and although we missed out on any silverware, the year has been very successful. Our participation number grew in line with last year by another healthy 20% which may in part be a reflection of the massive support from Bupa Dental. The provision of fitted mouthguards to all of our players is extraordinary generous and a massive point of differentiation to all of our rival clubs.

The logistics of bringing together all of our players - junior, youth and seniors - in two mammoth sessions over two days was an exceptional effort by a small Bupa team. We were also delighted to officially launch our partnership with Bupa Dental with a barbeque and fun session hosted by Tasmanian Football Legend, Peter Hudson, who coincidentally is a past senior coach at the Hobart Football Club. Call it coincidence, but sometimes some things just seem as though they were meant to happen!

Preparation for 2016 is underway prefaced against a goal of continuous improvement not only in our on field performances, but also our club management, community involvement and ensuring that we are a fun and family friendly place. With supporters like Bupa Dental, we know we are on a successful pathway!

President, Hobart Junior Football Club
