Dear Members and Supporters
It is with regret that the committee announce we are withdrawing our Division 5 side from the competition for the 2014 season.
To successfully run 3 teams we require 85-90 players and unfortunately we have not seen these numbers at training or been able to confirm enough intention from the required number of people to play this season.
Given that on average, first grade uses over 40 players a season and reserve grade over 50, the coaches and committee are confident that everyone who wants to play for Southern Power this season will get game time.
The committee will look to appoint an individual or group to take on the task of rebuilding a Division 5 side for the 2015 season.
We understand this decision will disappoint some people but, we believe it is best for the long term interests of the club.
If you have any questions regarding this decision please contact Lozz, Roey or any other member of the committee.
For those players, new and old to the club that have been able to train, it has been great to see the hard work being put in and hear of the extra work players are doing in their own time. With effort comes reward, so let’s keep up the commitment and get excited for the season ahead.

It is with great pleasure that the Southern Power AFL Club announce a very special partnership with HeartKids NSW for the 2014/15 seasons. The Power will partner with HeartKids to provide community awareness and, much needed support with volunteers and donations from the club.
“Six babies are born with Childhood Heart Disease every day in Australia. If we, as a club can help to raise funds which will make the lives of the families a little bit easier, we will support it 100%” said Lauren Hodgson, Club President. “One of our club members who has been involved in the club for a number of years has been personally affected, with his son undergoing open heart surgery at just 3 days old. Being a local Sydney resident and travelling back and forth to Westmead Children’s Hospital, was tough. It’s even more of an ordeal for those families that are from rural NSW and are away from their support network of family and friends. All of these families need as much support as they can get.”
In 2013, the club was proud to provide support to the Guide Dogs with a black tie dinner event featuring Kevin Sheedy as the guest speaker. The event was a huge success attracting over 120 guests. This year we will once again work with HeartKids on another formal dinner event, along with other fundraising and awareness building activities with all proceeds going to support the organisation.

Lauren added “As a club, we want to do more for community organisations. This year our game day match balls will feature the HeartKids logo, as well as it being placed on our club apparel. It will be a valuable reminder to appreciate life, give back to the community and to always play the game with a big heart!”
If you’re interested in getting involve, there are numerous ways to support HeartKids NSW throughout the year:
• Donate via their website
• Become a Heart Champion and sign up as a Regular Giver
• Sign up for our Workplace Giving program
• Become a HeartKids volunteer
• Volunteer to support us in organising events and fundraising for HeartKids
If you would like to support HeartKids or get more information, please contact
