I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to all the players for their remarkable performance throughout the 2023 season. Furthermore, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the parents, coaches, team managers, and all the invaluable contributors, both within and outside of the committee. Managing a season with 570 players is indeed a monumental task, involving the coordination of game days, fixtures, and presentation nights. My utmost appreciation goes out to everyone involved in making this season a success.
I wish to offer special recognition to the Year 12 boys and girls for their unwavering commitment to the club. It is worth noting that three players began their journey with the Jets in Auskick or Pups, some as early as 2010. To the boys, girls, and their parents, I extend my best wishes for the future, and we hope to continue seeing your presence and involvement within the club.
In addition, I would like to express my gratitude to all our new players who joined us in 2023, including the 144 Auskickers. A special thanks to Mercy for her role in organizing Auskick. The club saw substantial growth in female participation this year, with over 100 female players for the third consecutive year. The club's success in girls' football is exemplified by their representation at various levels, from District to State, WAFLW, and AFLW. Notably, our Y7/8 and Y11/12 girls reached the finals, and our Y8s secured a grand final victory.
I also wish to acknowledge the generous support of our club's sponsors for the 2023 season. This support comes from various tiers, including Platinum Sponsors, Gold Sponsors, Team/Event/Auskick Sponsors, and Sponsorship Partners. Your contributions are deeply appreciated, and we anticipate your continued support in 2024.
Our 2023 Year Book follows the success of the inaugural edition in 2022, serving as a historical account of the year's achievements for our members and future members. It is a reminder of the exceptional accomplishments of our players, teams, individuals, and the broader community. I hope that you will fondly reminisce about 2023 through the Year Book, cherishing the memorable moments and special achievements.
Throughout the year, we hosted a range of events, including Mother's Day Round, Pink Round (dedicated to raising awareness and funds for breast cancer research), NAIDOC Round, Mental Health Rounds, and awareness sessions for both boys and girls. We also had a Quiz Night and numerous windup events. I extend my sincere gratitude to everyone who contributed to the club's success in 2023 and wish those who are embarking on the next stages of their careers the best of luck.
As we look ahead to 2024, there are still opportunities for those who wish to contribute. I want to express my appreciation to the retiring committee members who played a pivotal role in guiding the club through 2023, with some having served for an extended period. Your dedication to this community club is truly invaluable.
I extend my thanks to each and every individual who has supported me during my two years as President. I wish the club continued success in the future, and I look forward to the exciting journey that lies ahead.
