Sponsor Announcements:

The Dockers have re-signed for another 3 years with Ourimbah RSL Club. We’re also supported for the second year in a row by Grill’d @ Erina Fair and Murphys Meats @ Lisarow.

Volunteer Spotlight: 

Kim Hardacre
Secretary, Canteen Assistant, Grants Submissions, Events Coordinator… Kim is a quiet achiever. Her no nonsense, get it done attitude has enabled her to support the Dockers in so many ways. Whether it’s managing the Club’s admin, cooking snags, chasing funding or locking in events and suitable sponsors, wherever a hole needs to be plugged Kim simply puts herself in the frame and makes the magic happen.

Danny Field and Jasper Croft
Danny along with 13 other Fire fighters and Ambulance officers travelled to Vietnam and visited local schools and villages. Danny and Jasper took Sherrins donated by the Dockers and handed them out at a local school, along with some books. It was such a highlight to all of the guys on the trip to see the children smiling, happy and playing AFL!

Niagara Park Ourimbah Dockers is a Club that has built a strong culture of inclusiveness and we have worked hard to cultivate a healthy, fun and family friendly place for everyone to enjoy football. We strive to engage with our families and welcome help, suggestions and ideas from every member of our club. We are proud of our conduct in the Central Coast Competition, as well as our standing in our local community and whilst we always aim to be competitive, our major focus is to have fun!
