It is with sadness that we acknowledge the passing of Grahame Green. Grahame has been a long-time supporter of hockey in general being a player and committee member at Hawthorn Hockey Club in his younger days. After having a family, many of the Green’s played at Waverley and Grahame, along with his wife Josi, was a regular feature over many, many years supporting his kids and all other Waverley players. This included the 2015 season where Grahame was able to enjoy Waverley’s success as his son, Ant, lead Waverley’s Premier League Reserves team to a premiership and then backed it up against Grahame’s old team Hawthorn in the Over 35 team on a cold Monday night.
We pass on our deepest sympathy to Josi, Ant, Michael, Anna and Andrew and the wider Green family.

- Don Larter, held one of the General Committee positions
As announced as part of the fee restructure for 2016, a $50 volunteer levy has been introduced. The volunteer levy will work by way of a points system.
