Nick Rugg (2017)

Nick and Julie moved to the Hills early in 2002 with their 2 kids Eleanor & Peter.  Nick immediately signed up his kids to play, and decided to join the committee to lend a hand.  Initially he took on the role of Competition Secretary, and over the years grew into other roles, primarily focussed on grading and coaching. Around 2010 he moved onto the executive committee in the role of Junior Vice President where he oversaw the commencement of the partnership with ASA Football (Pat Polistina).  He managed the introduction of older Rockets kids refereeing small-sided football games at the club, seeing this as an important way for players to learn respect for the art of refereeing. While on the executive, he took part in the Rockets 50th Year celebrations that were held in 2016.  To cap off his time at the club, in 2015 he left Winston Hills club where he had played for many years, and joined the Rockets O35 team, the following year taking out the premiership and winning the grand final.  At the end of the 2016 season, Nick was awarded life membership along with past president Sze Kong Lee.  Nick remains associated with the club, assisting with grading, bylaw & policy reviews and occasionally referees a game.
