James McKay has been involved with Woden Valley Soccer Club since 1999 when his son began playing. Over the course of his 20-year involvement with the club, James has filled coaching, Committee, Vice Presidential and Presidential roles and shows no sign of slowing down yet.
On Sunday mornings he helps out with the club’s Women’s State League, while also coaching Men’s State League teams on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On game days, you can also find him organizing nets, flags and corner posts for home games and cluster venues.
James puts a lot of effort into helping those teams who are missing out on the support higher-level teams enjoy. He has been doing this and other various roles around the club forever.
James encouraged others to consider volunteering with your local club.
“I like to see teams that work hard and support each other do well,” he said. “All clubs need volunteers and it can be very rewarding. I have been fortunate to be at a club with a good culture.”
