Help support your club

Everyone’s been impact by the global pandemic. Here in Australia, we are seeing many sectors struggling to survive amid the measures to contain the deadly virus.

As a community sporting club, we rely on the support of local business in Lane Cove, many of who are barely keeping their head above water. Therefore, we would encourage you all to support the businesses that help keep our club afloat and provide the opportunity for your children to partake in a such a beneficial activity as Australian rules football.

If you are looking to buy or sell a home, please contact Simon at Belle Property.

If you need a check up on your teeth, you can’t go past Apple Dental. Specialist dental work is also covered off by the wonderful team at Lane Cove Orthodontics.

Cafe’s have been hit hard by the restrictions on business, so why not head down to Fink Cafe for your daily fix of coffee. They also have some wonderful Belgian chocolates.

Purchase a raffle ticket

One of the best ways to support our club is to purchase a ticket from the Toyota Good for Footy raffle. Through the generosity of Toyota and the AFL, Lane Cove Cats will keep 100% of the proceeds of the ticket sales.

Tickets are only $5 each and prizes up for grabs include a Toyota Rav4 and loads of signed merchandise (see below).

Tickets are sold online. Click here to purchase yours and support the club.

Junior Presentation Day

We will be holding our team presentations this Sunday 8 September at the Longueville Sporting Club (The Diddy). Proceedings will commence at 11:00am.

All team awards (best & fairest, coaches award etc) will be presented on the day, plus a few club awards. The Diddy’s kitchen will be open for lunch, and probably have a few fun games of footy on the green.

Return your Guernsey

We would ask that all players bring their Lane Cove Cats guernsey and shorts, preferably washed and in a bag labelled with your name.

Team Equipment

We would also ask that all volunteers bring any football gear they have been using for the year. This includes coaches bags, team manager equipment, and keys to the Blackman park storage room.

Donate your used boots

If your son or daughter has also grown out of their footy boots, also bring them along. We plan to donate all boots collected to disadvantages members of the community via registered charities.

Lane Cove Orthodontics – Best Wishes for the Season

Message from Our Sponsor

The team at Lane Cove Orthodontics are thrilled to be supporting the club again this year and wish all the players a fantastic season ahead. It really does give us a kick (no pun intended!) when one of our patients comes into the clinic and tells us about their achievements at the Cats or we see them in their playing tops around the Village.

We are so fortunate to have such a family friendly club in our community and are always impressed to see both girls and boys being encouraged to participate. Likewise we continue to be in awe of the efforts made by the volunteers. We feel it is this culture that makes Lane Cove Cats a special club and is why we are so happy to be a sponsor each year.

As a member of the Cats club, we are happy to offer you a free consultation and if you have any queries regarding orthodontic treatment by a specialist orthodontist please contact Dr Rex and the team on 9427 8088.

Go Cats!
Dr Teriko Rex and the Lane Cove Orthodontics Team

Apple Dental – Mouthguards and Dental Trauma

Message from our Sponsor

One of Lane Cove Cats major sponsors is Apple Dental.   The owner of Apple Dental, Mark Casiglia has been involved heavily with the Lane Cove Cats and he has been a dentist in Lane Cove for over 25 years!   Mark has some wise words here with regards to mouthguards and dental trauma, which will be of interest.

Mouthguards are important for the protection of teeth when playing sport. Store-bought mouthguard offer protection against lip lacerations but due to a lack of tight fit against the teeth, dental injuries inside these types of mouthguards is common. They may also affect performance on the field due to the distraction of trying to constantly keep the mouthguard in place. Talking on the field, which is often critical to the outcome of play, is also difficult if not impossible with a loose mouthguard.

Professionally fitted custom mouthguards fit intimately against the teeth, adapt well against the opposite teeth, stay snugly in place and offer far better protection against dental injuries.

Should an injury occur such as a tooth being knocked out, the best course of treatment is to put it back in, without too much concern about whether it is straight or not. The socket is the best protection for the tooth. If this is not possible, storing the tooth in milk or wrapping it in cling wrap is the next best course of action. Either way, seeking out a dental visit as soon as possible after the injury is critical.
