COVID19 or Corona Virus. However you say it, it’s been the most inconvenient thing to have happen to us as a human race in a very long time. It’s taken away our sports, our socialising, family gatherings, peoples jobs, schooling and most importantly for us football fans, it has put doubt into whether any of our Gridiron leagues will go ahead in 2020. Despite the recent Victorian outbreaks, it looks as though almost all Leagues will have a season…..touch wood.
So with this setback, it might actually play a positive for the sport of Gridiron. Rugby, Soccer, Aussie Rules and other sports have been cancelled completely leaving players HUNGRY. This is a perfect opportunity for Gridiron Clubs ALL over Australia to get on the front foot and tell these players HEY!!! Look over here!!. Why not try something completely different?
On Gridiron Downunder, we will be posting approved promotional videos of some clubs from GV and GNSW created by Onside Kick Productions. (Which is my little project)
First up are the Casey Spartans Gridiron Club. Based in the East of Melbourne. Their home ground is the former Berwick Miners base at Sydney Pargeter Reserve, Endeavour Hills. https://www.facebook.com/CASEYspartans/
Doing things differently, this club started with just an under 15’s team in 2018 and added an under 19’s in 2019. The Under 19’s were easily the 2nd best side in their first year but the experience of their opponent came to fruition at playoff time. The club is looking to add a Women’s team for 2020 while adding more talent to their junior ranks. The Men’s team has been put on hold for 2020 but they will be looking to fill that void in 2021.
The Spartans focus is on Culture and diversity with a number of their players from different backgrounds. They treat everyone the same, like part of the family. This is evident in the way the players hold themselves on game day.
Stay tuned for more club promotional videos.
