Athlete Leadership Program 2019

This article was written by Justin Hill, SOSUNS athlete

The Athlete Leadership Program give Athletes the chance to have their voices heard by sitting on their region’s committee and discussing what the athlete have to say. The program give them an opportunity to speak at function to promote their region and to meet and greet guests at event. This is a real confidence boost for the athlete as they can speak on their committee and meet and greet guest. In the Athlete Leadership Program for our Region we have Jonathan Reiss, Stephanie Walker and myself Justin Hill.

2018 AGM and Disco

SOSUNS’ annual general meeting for 2018 was held on the 24th November at St Ives Community Hall. It began with an address by the Club Chairman, Aditya Swarup, followed by a presentation of certificates to all athletes who attended the meeting.

Athletes and their families then enjoyed a BBQ dinner, kindly run by the Epping Eastwood Lions Club, followed by a disco.

A big thanks to the Lions Club and those who helped organise the AGM and disco. We wish you all a wonderful holiday break and look forward to another eventful year in 2019.

Bocce Launch

SOSUNS has recently added Bocce as a sports program option! Bocce is an Italian ball sport similar to lawn bowls. It’s a great way to get fit, gain confidence and socialise with other people.

It runs between 4:30-5:30pm every Saturday at West Pymble Bicentennial Club (excluding school holidays).

This story is written by Justin Hill, Athlete Representative for the SOSUNS committee.

On the 15th of April, about 10 Special Olympics Sydney Upper North Shore Athletes travelled to Adelaide to compete at the Special Olympics National Games.

We competed in tennis, swimming, sailing and basketball.

In basketball Josh’s team came 2nd, Michael’s came 4th, Jonathan’s team came 4th as well and my team came 2nd.

I enjoyed meeting athletes from across Australia in particular I met some Western Australia basketball athletes. Everyone had a great time and it was a great event.
