Waratahs launch this season's NeuroPower Manly for Manly Community Program

Manly For Manly
It's with great pleasure the Manly Warringah Waratahs launch the Manly for Manly Program for the 2016/17 season. Manly for Manly is the internal community program of the Manly Warringah Waratahs running since the 2013/14 season. The program aims to bring the club, players, administrators and supporters closer to the local community. Since its inclusion we have seen the program go from strength to strength, and evolve along the way.

Although our cricket club is primarily based on improving our players on the field, an essential part of the Waratah culture is also developing & improving our young men off the field. One of the ways our club does this is by means of giving back. Giving back to the community that support us, our charity partners and to the next wave of future Waratahs at a grass roots level.

Since its inclusion we as a club know that although the community, charity partners and junior associations benefit from our great program, it's our players that gain the most out of being involved and helping out. Knowing they have contributed and given back to individuals and groups alike that may not be as fortunate.

Our players, coaches and committee are only a handful of lucky individuals that have the privilege of representing the "Manly Warringah" brand, which is an extremely strong one as it covers the entire Northern Beaches area. However, with this also comes a responsibility to respect and take care of the area that gives us all so much, this involves being part of it.

The program is a very important part of our club, because, let's face it, the Northern Beaches community is not only one of our strengths but also our future. The majority of our future players and administrators will come from the Northern Beaches community, so being involved with these people and engaging them early on, we hope to show what our club is about not only on the field but also off it. We know by doing this it will only help to increase our chances of future success both on and off the field. The Manly for Manly program aims to do all of these things.

We are also very pleased to announce that the NueroPower Group have jumped on board as sponsor of the program this season. NeuroPower are an organisation that develop frameworks that create high performance cultures. They apply the latest insights from neuroscience to help develop high performance teams and create cultural transformation, leading to sustainable organizational development.

NueroPower CEO Zane Harris is especially excited to come on board as the official partner of the program

"We heard about the Manly for Manly community program through a client of ours Mick Trevaskis, and heard a bit more about it from Tim Cruickshank and Joel Mason, and it sounded amazing.

"To have your playing group give up their spare time is a fantastic way to promote the club and make sure it is a natural part of the Northern Beaches community. We are very excited to be a part of it for this season.

The Tahs are very fortunate to have a sponsor such as NueroPower on board for 2016/17 and we thank then for their support. TO read more about NeuroPower please visit them at http://neuropowergroup.com/

We are also extremely lucky that this program has the fantastic support of our great patrons - NSW Treasurer Mike Baird, former Manly Mayor Jean Hay and former Warringah Mayor Michael Regan. Click here to view their thoughts this great new initiative.

As this is a holistic approach, the Manly for Manly program will involve our players, administrators and coaching staff to some degree. It is important that all levels of the club, both on and off the field, work together to move the club in the right direction.

We can confirm that this program will be run by Waratahs legend and former first class cricketer Tim Cruickshank. Tim will be able helped out by Ted Lindsay once again. Ted has been involved with the Waratahs for over a decade now due to his 3 sons playing - Andrew, Michael and Peter. He is a Life Member and former President of our Junior Association, and is keen to be involved with the Waratahs once again.
