Docklands Sports Day
Sean Car

Close to 100 people attended a sports day on Sunday, March 24 at Ron Barassi Snr Park hosted by Docklands Athletic FC, offering a range of sporting activities for families to enjoy.

Soccer, volleyball, and cricket were among the highlights for the kids, while the Sunday Metro 3 men’s side of the recently established Docklands Athletic FC also played a practice match on the day against Albert Park FC.

Members of the Docklands Athletic FC’s State 3 women’s side also attended, as locals were given the chance to interact with the new club and find out how to get involved in upcoming clinics and junior team trials.

The City of Melbourne’s Docklands neighbourhood partner Fadi Qunqar also set up an information stand at the event, with a free barbecue on offer for those attending.

Docklands Athletic FC president Matthew Tate told Docklands News the event was a “great outcome” for the new club, which received a lot of great feedback.

After kicking off its new season on Saturday, March 23, Mr Tate encouraged Docklanders to head along to Ron Barrassi Snr Park on Saturday, April 2 for the club’s first official home game against the Moonee Valley Knights. The reserves team will kick off at 1pm, and seniors at 3pm. •
