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.
"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!
“ 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.”
"Success is not the destination, it is the journey. Relish each step as you climb the mountain of achievement."
I have been a part of the LVDL for a fair few years now. To put simply, from the first time I became a part of the LVDL community as a player, it has been nothing short of an incredible experience. I've met so many amazing people, that bring a whole new meaning to the expression, "welcomed with open arms." I can even say I had the pleasure of meeting my wife through this community.
So with all this community has done for me and helped me grow into the person I have become, I felt it was the least I could do to help the league grow in return.
General Committee Member:
"Winning is great, but how you pick yourself back up after a loss shows your true character."
I have been involved with the LVDL now for a few years. I have met some of the most caring and compassionate people in the league. Dodgeball has helped me overcome some of my bad habits, change my mindset and helped me focus on what is important.
My goal is to make both newcomers and returning community members feel as welcome as my predecessors did for me.
