In addition to her numerous roles such as TVFC Club Secretary and Women’s Team Captain, Shirley has managed the Pavilion Project from the drafting stage onwards.

Baw Baw Shire Council handed management of the project to TVFC midway through 2013 and it has been Shirley who has overseen the drafting, pricing, consultation and construction phases of the project ever since.  Her experience and connections within the local building trade have ensured a long term quality asset for the club and a balanced budget.  TVFC is the first sports club in Gippsland to be allocated project management from BBSC via state government funding.  Shirley’s efforts and contribution have ensured the delivery of a project that both state and local government will be proud of.

Shirley invests numerous hours behind the scenes and has dedicated herself in her first year upon the committee to the betterment of the club.

Jaiden showed great dedication and passion for her coaching role and was a great role model for the junior kids. Jaiden also supported the Under 7 team and their coach.
Jaiden often set up and packed up the ground on game days and she also helped out by marking the pitches (although some would suggest the lines she marked out were not all entirely straight.  As a Senior Women’s player Jaiden has been a valuable team member and committed player.  Jaiden once again should be proud of her involvement with Traf Victory for the 2014 season.
