Latrobe Valley Dodgeball League is organized by a non-for-profit committee made up from our playing community. This means that every dollar made goes back into the league for continued improvement and benefit to our community as a whole.
“If something is worth doing, it’s worth doing right.'
I believe in setting up good foundations on which to grow our community and our competition. This comes from both the people that volunteer their time and the practices we put in place. I am very proud of the growth our community has made to date.
In 2022, i stepped down as President of the league with the intention of creating space for others to step up and show us what they have to offer. I plan to continue helping out, while supporting others in growing their skills and confidence within the LVDL."
“ The league is as only good as its players and volunteers. We all need to do our part, that's why i am here!
As a player, it’s all about the camaraderie and the adrenaline rush.
I.e. A game was scored 6-7 Us vs Them on the siren. I was a fill in, my first game back after a break. Me alone, 1 vs 4. I win the round and force a tie break, then I help win the game 8-7.
I also like to think of dad jokes to try to outdo Mitch Howell, but I never succeed.”
General Committee Member:
"Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts."
I wasn't a sporting person, I felt lost and didn't know what I wanted to do until I decided to come to Dodgeball at LVDL. I have met so many amazing people in the LVDL community who I call my friends.
Being the first LGBTQIA+ committee member, i hope to help spread the same support in our Dodgeball community for others that i have experienced from the moment i joined!
