Due to the extension of the COVID19 lockdown, we’ll be postponing the Watsonia Heights FC 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) until Saturday 28th November 2020, starting at 11:30am. The venue will be Gabonia Avenue Reserve. Depending on State Government restrictions – we may have to have the AGM outside.
As our club continues to grow and evolve, we have updated the Executive Committee Roles and their titles to cater for both our substantial growth and our evolution into one formidable club. A club the size of ours needs more people to step up and take on a role, had the 2020 season gone ahead, Watsonia Heights FC would have entered 5 Senior Men’s teams, 2 Senior Women’s teams and 32 junior teams. After the first lockdown, we were still looking to enter 36 senior and junior teams – as most players and teams were still very keen to play.
If you also include Mini-roos, Soccer Mum’s and the new Pescara Football Academy, our community club is easily one of the (if not the) biggest Community Clubs in the Banyule City Council area.
Under Dave Lattanzio’s leadership over the last 2 years, the club itself has evolved into a one that is much more professional in its approach to Community Football. It had too. Our Club needs to continue to provide our Community with the opportunity to play and be involved in the most popular game in the World.
This is also your chance to become involved. All Executive Committee positions are up for either re-election or for a new person to come in do their part. Each position should be held for 2 years.
It’s the current Committee’s preference that all applicants provide a WHFC Executive Committee Nomination form prior to the 21st November 2020.
The new Executive Committee (formed after the AGM) will interview all applicants for the ‘Paid’ roles and will finalise these positions in Early December 2020.

WHFC Executive Committee Nomination forms, Life Membership Nomination forms and AGM Proxy vote forms are all available. Please request your 2020 forms from Secretary@whfc.org.au or President@whfc.org.au.
We will be celebrating our 50 years in 2021, all functions that were planned for this year – will now be postponed until 2021. If you’d like to be involved in organising the 50-year celebrations – please let us know.
The club will be providing lunch after the AGM – in appreciation for those that made the effort to attend.
Thank you for your support through this difficult year. Our club will survive 2020 and with your help, become a bigger entity in 2021.
The WHFC Executive Committee.
