The Central Coast Mariners are excited to announce that they will be venturing into a ground-breaking new partnership with Central Coast Heart Netball for the upcoming season. The Central Coast Mariners and Central Coast Heart will join forces in a partnership to help grow resources, share experiences, and ultimately support each other in collaboration to achieve goals. This collaboration is aimed to grow support, partners and resources for both Mariners and the Heart.
This partnership highlights the dedication of the Central Coast Mariners to be a community focussed organisation representing the region and one that makes a real difference to Central Coast residents. Both clubs firmly believe that with the support of each other, they can make a material impact on the Central Coast region and help them grow sustainably into the future.
Mariners CEO Shaun Mielekamp spoke on this exciting venture for both clubs which will only grow and prosper with time.
“The Central Coast Heart and Central Coast Mariners share the same brand values and dedication to helping athletes on the coast fulfill their potential as well as giving back to our community and providing role models for our grassroots participants.
“This partnership will allow the Football and Netball to communities on the coast to collaborate, share resources and combine experience to grow all aspects of the codes and pathways. We hope that all Central Coast Football and Netball fans, sponsors and participants can see the huge potential and opportunities here by joining forces,” Mielekamp said.
“The ability of the two organisations working together, sharing resources and networks sets the platform for a very exciting and progressive direction for sport on the coast.
“We encourage all fans, businesses and community groups to connect with us and help our journey to work together and give the very best opportunity for the Central Coast Athletes that I have no doubt long term will provide a huge platform for all sports on the coast to feed from,” Mielekamp concluded.
Central Coast Heart Chair, Bronwyn Rumbel is excited for the Mariners to come on board as a partner to grow both franchises.
“We are excited to welcome Central Coast Mariners as a Major Partner of Central Coast Heart. This collaboration will build on the success of our franchise, and we look forward to collaborating with the Mariners to promote opportunities for netball across the region.”
Central Coast Heart High Performance Manager, Di Brown spoke about what this partnership can do for athletes of both teams.
“This partnership will provide the opportunity to enhance our high-performance pathways for players, coaches and officials and support our young athletes to fulfil their potential.”
Central Coast Heart will have their pre-season Exhibition Match, this Saturday at Niagara Stadium from 5pm. Featuring entertainment on and off the court, Mariners fans are invited to experience the new sport of netball as the Heart gear up for the exciting season ahead.
