Meet the Huddy behind Huddy Day!
Hudson (aka Huddy) was a player with Bungendore Tigers Juniors for a number of years, and remains an active member of our club community – volunteering with us, helping set-up and pack-up home games, and is a LeagueSafe for U15’s as well as providing a fill-in for other teams.
Huddy has autism, but if you ask anyone who played with him or knows him through the club, they would not even know. He is an amazing player, who feels tremendously at peace on the footy field.
In 2021, Huddy received the QPRC Young Citizen of the Year for his fundraising and increasing awareness of autism (read about it here).
What is with those socks?!
Huddy’s favourite colour is green. To honour this, every Bungendore team will be wearing special Huddy Day socks – each design with a splash of green. For those of us who aren’t playing on the day, please dress in your favourite green gear to show your support. We’ll be getting team photos in those socks again this season.
Show your support!
To cover most of our teams at home this year (and because Covid ruined Huddy Day 2021!), we’re doing Huddy Day for Round 10 and 11 (24 & 31 July). For our teams away both weeks, we will get you the socks to wear at your away game in Round 10 or 11.
This weekend the Junior Tigers will again be raising money for the Ricky Stuart Foundation, with the Club (supported by Paladin Sports) providing the Huddy Day socks at no cost to our U6+ players, we ask the players, families, spectators and anyone make a donation on the day to the Ricky Stuart Foundation (if they are able to do so) – with a bucket for cash at the canteen, as well as the ability to make your donation via our EFTPOS.
To find out more about the Ricky Stuart Foundation – please visit their website (click here).
We also have some Huddy Day merchandise available from the canteen, with all proceeds also to be donated to the Ricky Stuart Foundation.
