Rhonda Jenkin Scholarship

Rhonda Jenkin Scholarship

The scholarship objective is to recognise the ideals set forth by the inaugural team/coaches/players and the values that Rhonda continued to build over her long tenure as a working committee member and president.

Rhonda’s vision brought kids together who wanted to have fun with their friends from school, children committed to playing and supporting each other whilst developing technical skills, sportsmanship and working as a team.

The scholarship will support the players who are recognised as embodying these principles and who will continue to support the club culture as Rhonda envisaged.
