Dacland supports new Wyndham Vale Soccer Club

Dacland has joined forces with the newly formed Wyndham Vale Soccer Club to promote healthy active lifestyles in the region.

As the founding sponsor in 2016, Dacland will actively support the new club in increasing its membership and encouraging children to try out a new sport.

Dacland Managing Director John Dwyer said the partnership was a natural fit. “We are absolutely delighted to help the Wyndham Vale Soccer Club get up and running. It’s so close to our Wynbrook community, and we’re keen to be involved in contributing to the wellbeing of our new residents, and in seeing a great community grow strong.”

Club President, Syed Ahsan said many of the surrounding soccer clubs were already full and it made sense to form a new club in the rapidly growing Wyndham Vale area. “Internationally, soccer is hugely popular and is one of the top sports played by Australian kids aged between six and 13 years old. We’ve started with two junior teams but we know interest will grow as more and more families move into this area. We appreciate the support from Dacland as we understand that their Wynbrook community is one of the fastest selling estates in the west,” he said.

John believes access to open space is key to promoting healthy lifestyles, and every Wynbrook home is less than 300 metres from open space or a community amenity. He says this means every single resident feels a heightened sense of belonging and a real sense of connection. “Our planning and design is driven by our conviction that every single resident deserves a great lifestyle in a great community,” John said.

“We make it our priority to create beautiful outdoor recreational areas where people really love to be. This includes designing open and inviting streetscapes that encourage kids and adults to get active, and ensuring our streets are as pedestrian and cyclist friendly as possible,” he said.

Residents interested in joining the new Wyndham Vale Soccer Club can contact the club by email wyndhamvalesoccer@gmail.com or Facebook. The club is also offering future residents at Dacland’s Wynbrook, King’s Leigh and Rothwell communities a $50 reduction on their annual membership fee on joining the club. The Wyndham Vale Soccer Club will be part of the Wyndham Healthy Active Expo to be held on 17 September 2016 and prospective members are welcome to visit the club booth and sign up for 2017 during the Expo.
