What kind of player will you be ? A message from Football NSW

To play football all you need is a ball. But for everyone to enjoy the beautiful game there also has to be RESPECT.
In these first few weeks of your competition you may have witnessed some moments of unsportsmanlike behaviour. A cynical tackle, talking back to the referee, harsh language. Perhaps a card has been issued. This year:

What type of player will you be?

Remember, football is a game, the coaches are volunteers, the referees are human and unlike the Western Sydney Wanderers you’re not playing in the Hyundai A-League Grand Final this weekend.

Sylvania Heights FC receives Defibrillator

Sylvania Heights FC will be the first football club in the Shire to benefit from the donation of a defibrillator from the Marc Arcuri Foundation.

Marc Arcuri , who played for Austral FC in South west Sydney ,  died tragically in July 2014  after suffering heart complications during a football match. He was just 15 years old.

The Marc Arcuri Cup, a six a side football competition was founded in his honour later that year and raised enough funds to purchase defibrillators for 3 clubs.  The second event in 2015, in partnership with Royal Lifesaving Australia, provided 21 defibrillators, one of which will now benefit Sylvania Heights FC.

In the event of a cardiac arrest, when using a defibrillator, survival rates jump to around 70%  from around    5-10% using CPR alone.

The defibrillator was presented to the Club, along with a quick training session, at the club’s April Committee meeting.

It will be kept in the canteen and further advice on it’s accesability will be forthcoming soon.
