Mighty Macksville cashing in

April 6th, 2021

Aggressively promoting a State Government step-up to encourage youngsters into sport is paying dividends for Macksville SC.
The Stingers have been preaching the worth of the Active Kids vouchers – and it’s one of the drivers behind their surge in player numbers.
“It was only about five years ago that we had one men’s team, one women’s and one junior side – this season we have some 116 players registered,” club committee member David Pirani said.
“Those Active Kids vouchers grew our MiniRoos and the first ones who came in on that are now our Under 9s where we have two teams.
“On the financial side it makes sense. For the parents of kids aged 5 to 7 it doesn’t cost them anything because registration is $100 and the vouchers are for $100.”
In 2021, Macksville will have players from MiniRoos through to senior men and women – and credit their good news story to an inclusive approach.
“We integrate a lot of our teams at training so all the kids know each other,” David said.
“It makes for a better club atmosphere and when we have all of our teams playing at home on the day it’s huge.”
