Club MVP: Round 9

Our Club MVP this week is Michelle Hauschild

Many of you may have seen Michelle walking around with a Drummoyne Power Hoodie and a Canon Camera taking many of the great action shots that appear on Facebook and our web page.  Michelle also puts in many hours over the week organising and publishing communications on the web, Facebook and Twitter to keep the club informed – always good fun during wet weather days!!!

Whilst we are extremely appreciative of Michelle’s efforts with communication, it is for an extraordinarily huge effort that Michelle made with our club photos and ensuring we are compliant with “Working With Children Check” that the DPJAFL Board have nominated her for MVP this week.

Michelle not only organised the photographer, facilitated managers distributing photo ordering instructions, organised the roster for the 3 days of photos, organised the team lists for each team, Michelle also spent roughly 20 hours over the 3 days and night watching kids have their photos taken.

Michelle was always on hand to get clean socks, Managers DPJAFL appropriate gear for the photo and she also ensured no stray footballs ended up in the back of the photos!!

Michelle has also been working on ensuring the DPJAFL is compliant with Working With Children Check (WWCC) for a majority of active volunteers and Board. The WWCC is one way we ensure volunteers who are cleared to work with our kids at AFL. Her diligence in getting our Board engaged and policy signed off in 2014, and her efforts in chasing active volunteers this year means we are ahead of most Sydney clubs in achieving WWCC compliance for 30 June 2015.

Overall it was an outstanding effort to get this both team photos and WWCC compliance organised and run in such a smooth manner – Great effort and we really do appreciate your efforts Michelle.

The Sydney Swans have asked each junior Club to nominate a weekly MVP – it could be a player, an official or volunteer around the grounds. If our entry is selected, the nominee wins four tickets to a Swans game. Michelle. Good luck and thanks for a super effort!
