2018 SAP/ NET/ Youth NPL Season Launch for Hamilton Olympic

Monday night saw the club celebrate the 2018 SAP/ NET/ Youth NPL Season Launch at the Greek Community Hall in Hamilton.

Close to 250 parents, players, coaches and family members were in attendance. All players received their playing/ training gear and will all no doubt look the part when they take the field in their Adidas playing gear.

The club were fortunate to have on the night a number of guests from within the clubs  Senior Coaching and playing group. Head coach Peter McGuinness, club captain Kyle Hodges, Rhys Cooper and Scott Pettit were on hand to present the teams with their equipment. MC on the night Kosta Patsan also asked our guests a little bit about their past, and their expectations for the year.

The club also introduced as a Club Ambassador the highly experienced and versatile Newcastle Jet, Jason Hoffman. Jason first joined Olympic in our Under 12 from Mayfield Juniors, and had many successful years within our Junior ranks, before being signed from our Senior squad in the 2007 season by the Jets. He is always on hand to help out his ex- Junior and Senior club, and we welcome Jason on board as the Club’s ambassador.

We wish all the players, coaches and support staff the best for the 2018 season!
