2019 Ocean Grove Cobras Gala Day

MEDIA RELEASE

Ocean Grove Cobras is excited to officially launch season 2019 with a fun family gala day on Sunday 3 March from 1-3pm.

The day will allow the local community the opportunity to get to know the town’s junior football club while having some fun at the same time. Highlights will include skills and fitness sessions, jumping castles, games, merchandise sales and the opportunity to register for the season ahead. Cobras Gala Day will celebrate all things junior footy.

Last year’s first ever Cobras Gala Day was attended by over 200 children and their families, and as a result of its success it’s back this year with exciting new additions.

With the prominence of junior sport in this growing region and some ambitious plan around new club rooms for our club, the OGCJFC has invited local politicians to the event and they have kindly taken up the invitation. Confirmed attendees include, Corangamite Member, Sarah Henderson, Corangamite Opposition Member, Libby Coker, along with State Bellarine Member (also State Police Minister) Lisa Neville. Bellarine ward councillors for the City of Greater Geelong, Trent Sullivan and Stephanie Asher will also be in attendance.

Adding to the attendee list, much to our players delight, are a surprise Geelong Cats player and several players from the Ocean Grove Senior Football Club, including current Coach and ex-Cobra, Jordy Jones.

 Ocean Grove Cobras President, Shaun Stow, said “Our Gala Day isn’t a political function but an event to celebrate the kids, our club and the community we live in. We have invited key political figures to see what our club is all about and for them to see the restraints we currently have with size of clubrooms and no girl’s facilities etc.”

“This year we will field 16 teams in our local competition and welcome over 200 Auskickers to our home ground each Friday night. It’s safe to say that junior football is absolutely booming in this town! We look forward to growing these numbers even further post Gala Day 2019.”

OGCJFC Season 2019 kicks off on April 26.
