Swifts Players in Maribyrnong Council’s She’s Game Video

Players Nasya and Jennii (who recently became a mum to a baby girl) were interviewed in Maribyrnong City Council’s video She’s Game, a project that seeks to increase female participation and inclusion within local sporting clubs. The video explores the reasons why women and girls participate in sport, the barriers many women and girls face in trying to participate in sport, and what clubs can do to overcome these barriers.

Position descriptions for each role are listed in the attached document.

MSFC Committee Roles 2015-2016

Committee members play a vital role in the operation of the club and its future development. All positions on the committee are volunteer roles. Volunteers are a critical resource for the club and the committee will endeavour to support and encourage anyone who can contribute their time and energy to our club.

All committee members who are elected are expected to conduct themselves respectfully, ethically, and cooperatively. They are expected to be committed to the goals and vision of the Maribyrnong Swifts. While all positions have specific roles it is expected that committee members support each other, share ideas and experiences, and help other committee members when needed.

In order to nominate yourself for a role, you need to have an annual MSFC membership. Players automatically have a membership through their registration fees but non-players (i.e. parents of junior players) are able to pay $30 to become a member, payable on the night of the AGM.

For more information, please email the current committee at
