Beauy greats Maxine Thomson and Gert Gratz received their Victoria Volunteer Awards from local MP Brad Rowswell for their combined 25 years service to the community as Committee members responsible for Facilities and Events respectively.
Brad praised both for giving a huge amount of time to benefit others noting both have adult children whose playing days are behind them. "Without volunteers like you our community is much poorer and on behalf of all who serve others and parents and players alike we thank you for all you have offered and continue to provide.".
Gert and Maxine were delighted with Gert adding it's a privilege to give and to see the enjoyment of young people as they grow participating in team sport.
Beaumaris Soccer Club is sad to advise our members that one of our past players Mitch Smith passed away on Saturday morning after a long battle with brain cancer.

It is with great pleasure and gratitude that we can confirm your club's ongoing relationship with Porshe Centre Brighton for the 2019 season. It is only with the financial support of our major business partners, such as Porsche Centre Brighton, that the Club is able to provide the facilities and infrastructure for both our junior and adult members to train, compete, and enjoy their soccer.
Porsche Centre Brighton, marketing manager, Krissy McLean, commented that the Centre was keen to support a Bayside community organisation and, in conjunction with our committee sponsorship director, Marc Gibson, was looking to further enhance the relationship this year.
Three of our State League One senior men's squad are pictured at the Porsche Centre in Brighton recently to cement the relationship, and our State League women’s team will also be visiting the Centre shortly.

Owning a Porsche is a lot closer than you think!
New Beaumaris Sports Pavilion
To all Beauy players, parents and friends,
Your Committee has been lobbying for 11 years for improvements to
be made to our sports pavilion to accommodate the growing
demand for soccer locally and to cater for the needs of all our junior
players, particularly females, and basic facilities for people with
disabilities with some additional indoor social space to enable teams
to have coaching in inclement weather. We had agreement from
Bayside Council officers and our Southern Ward Councillors Laurie
Evans and Clarke Martin to prioritise this project in the council’s
Pavilion Redevelopment Plan.
In 2017 Bayside Council committed to support a new Bayside Arts
and Sports Pavilion (BASP) for use by 4 Beaumaris clubs – soccer,
cricket, tennis and arts. Both the Arts and Sports pavilion were to be
demolished and replaced with a new facility providing for the needs
of all. In February 2019 we were advised by Council that the BASP
project was cancelled due to the cost to build exceeding budget, and
because of objections by the local RSL. Council then advised a
dedicated sports pavilion would be built with the following facilities:
• 4 x 30m2 changerooms
• 3 x 20m2 amenities (4 showers, 2 toilets)
• 1 x 20m2 amenities (4 showers, 2 toilets, 1 accessible
• 2 x 20m2 storerooms
• 1 x accessible public toilet
• 1 x ambulant public toilet
• 1 x 30-35m2 kiosk/kitchen
• 1 x 15m2 umpires (2 showers, 1 toilet)
• 1 x 12m2 first aid room
• 1 x 3m2 cleaning cupboard
• 1 x 10m2 bin store
• 1 x 100m2 social space
• 1 x 10m2 chair and table store
• maximum undercover area to protect players and spectators
from inclement weather.
The proposal to build the new pavilion is being debated at Bayside
Council’s meeting on 24th May 2019 at Council chambers in Brighton.
We need you to support the proposal by explaining why the existing
facilities are not fit for purpose, and why all our boys, girls and
women should be treated as equals with acceptable change and
toilet facilities. Beaumaris Soccer Club has over 600 players
registered, a growing female football programme, and is expecting
demand for an additional 120 players by 2021.
Please register to speak on Thursday 18 August from midday
onwards by clicking on this link. The Council report can be accessed
via the same page. Representations in person from players, Mums,
sisters and grandparents are especially welcome and are limited to
a maximum of 2 minutes. Note that unless you register to speak you
cannot support the motion.

PERSONAL TRAINING & NUTRITION
Beaumaris SC is delighted to announce that former senior player Michael Farnham will be associated with the club in 2019. Michael has a business in the local Bayside area & will provide assistance to our senior squad throughout the season with a strength & conditioning program & will be available for any of our members needs.
“I have been working in the fitness industry for the last 4 years and my goal was to open my own Personal Training Studio by 2020. I have managed to pursue my dream in 2018 opening Ecofit Personal and Group Training in July this year. The vision of Ecofit is to promote a sustainable lifestyle in a community orientated environment and focusing on Personal Training, Group Training, Strength and Conditioning, Yoga Classes and Nutrition Consultations. I have played soccer since the age of 9 and have previously played at Beaumaris Soccer Club for 4 years but due to injury I was forced to put my love for the game on hold and I am now focusing on new goals. I have been able to combine strength and conditioning to many of my clients from all backgrounds and with this knowledge and experience, I believe it will benefit the players for the upcoming season and put them a step above the competition. I am very proud to be a part of the Beaumaris Soccer Club again and I look forward to assisting any players, members & parents during the 2019 season.”
