Blumers Lawyers Good Sports Award: Melissa Farfan

Congratulations to Melissa Farfan from the Gungahlin Bulls juniors who has won a $50 Raiders Group voucher thanks to Blumers Lawyers.

If you know someone who is a good sport and deserves to be recognised, message us on Facebook and tell us why they should be our next winner.

Mel has been the manager of two teams for the last couple of years. As well as this, she stepped in to take over duties of the U13 Silvers last year when they needed someone to help out. One day Mel also drove from Goulburn to Cooma to manage both of her sides.

She’s massively conscientious about keeping all the parents up to date and organised and doing all the bits and pieces that a manager does.

At last year’s Grand Final day, Mel made some nice little touches like buying a balloon arch for the kids to run through. I know the coaches were hugely grateful for her assistance.

She also organises events for the club such as the end of season barbecue and coordinating the parents to cater for different carnivals.

During the off season, she also helps out lots of our players by managing OzTag teams which helps keep up their skills, fitness and friendships over the summer.

Mel’s also a super mum with 4 kids to look after, including a toddler who’s a bit of a team mascot for the team’s she manages.
