Subiaco continues its partnership with West Perth Rotary Club
The West Perth Rotary Club have continued to financially support Subiaco’s Community Engagement Program with a further $5,000 being given to the program to assist with transitioning Indigenous players from our regional zone to the metro area. Relocating from regional areas is a significant challenge for the Indigenous players and the Subiaco District would like to acknowledge the contribution that the West Perth Rotary Club has made in assisting the Indigenous players with their relocation.
“It’s great to partner with West Perth Rotary Club and their ongoing support is greatly appreciated. The partnership is mutually beneficial to both parties, with both organisations being able to raise their profile within the community and continue to deliver wider community outcomes”, said Subiaco District Manager Ben Haywood.
The funding will be used towards schooling expenses, travel expenses and other out of pocket expenses associated with relocation.

Coastal Titans progressed to the Grand Final in both League and Reserves of the West Australian Women's Football League after winning their respective Semi Finals last weekend.
The League 2nd Semi Final was the game everyone had been looking forward to, with Titans looking to prove a point against Swan Districts following a loss in Round 11.
The Titans dominated the play early and held the lead for the duration of the game to beat Swans by 28 points.
The Titans are experienced in playing finals football, having appeared in every Grand Final since entering the competition 10 years ago. The Titans will be excited to continue that trend having gone straight through again this season.
