John Vander Veeken the Club President was contacted by the FFA on Wed 30th October to notify him of Alan Paice's place in the final 5 finalists for FFA Community Coach of the Year.
Alan was nominated (without his knowledge) due to his significant contribution to coaching SSF and Junior players in the club and local area. There would barely be a night/day that Alan isnt involved in coaching players from the club. And he even found time to coach the under South State Talent Identification (STIC) team in 2013

27th August 2013
The Board of the Sturt Lions Football Club has recently undertaken a review of operations and has determined that a change to its governance structure is necessary to reduce the burden on certain individuals and their important roles within the club.
Our club has dramatically grown in size in the last two years and many more volunteers are needed outside of the 7 member elected Board. This new governance structure introduces a Management Committee to support a number of crucial volunteer roles and provides for sub-committees to be created when needed to tackle certain key areas of club administration.
Importantly, this new structure will allow the Board to devote more time to critical strategic issues such as future facilities planning and government grant funding.
Please take the time to read the Governance Structure document and consider whether you have the skills and time to volunteer for one of the Management Committe roles for the 2014 season.
If you have any questions or wish to apply for a role, please contact Derek Nagle via email email@example.com
