New partnership supports sporting opportunities

DOMINIC College and Dominic Old Scholars Association (DOSA) Football Club have strengthened their relationship with the College crest now featuring on the club’s playing jumpers.

DOSA Football Club has a long history of success in the Old Scholars competition, as well as forging valuable links and friendships between Dominic College and past students.

DOSA Football Club president Luke Golding said the club was renowned for the number of old scholars playing for the Roosters.

He said it was now the only club playing with the school logo on its jumpers.

“Our home ground, the TCA, has been renovated and spectators are enjoying the newly levelled playing surface and the best canteen in the OSFA,” he said.

“Both our reserves and seniors have been very competitive this year and we are hoping the finals will be rewarding.”

Dominic College principal Beth Gilligan said the College and DOSA Football Club had developed and signed a partnership agreement that supported the College’s athletic and sport programs, as well as opened up network opportunities for students.

She said she was proud of the new partnership.

“This is a great development in the relationship and our students will benefit from mentored athletic training in our HPE curriculum, with specialised coaching from committed club footballers,” she said.

Mr Golding said the club and players were pleased to help give back to the school community.

“We have been able to help Dominic College in many ways outside football,” he said.

“Our members were enthusiastic in offering opportunities to students during their work experience and we are all looking forward to upcoming events such as the Creative Arts Festival and the College Fair.”
