2010 saw the introduction of Heidelberg’s Junior Program, based at two high schools in the Northern suburbs – PEGS (Keilor East) and CLC (Eltham). The Juniors trained in block programs typically 4-6 weeks in duration, culminating in participation in a tournament free of charge at the end of each block.
In the State League season, both Division 1 teams struggled with new and young teams, looking forward to next year and hoping for better results. Both honours teams progressed to the Preliminary finals, with the Honours Men also qualifying for the grand final, which they won against Monash University in four sets. Game report here.
2010 also saw the end of an era with long-serving club president Tomas Santamaria standing down, handing over the reigns to Jenny Becker. Tomas remains part of the club under a new role.
