The Baxter Soccer Club is affiliated with Football Victoria in Men’s State League 4, Metropolitan League 5, Women’s State League 5 and Sportsmart Junior competitions with a proud history dating back to 1977.
Like many sporting clubs and associations in our community, we are struggling with the significant impact of the COVID-19 pandemic which creates an uncertain future for many sporting clubs, including ours.
We have joined with the Australian Sports Foundation to provide a platform for anyone who is willing to support a local club in any way possible.
With the season due to recommence from anywhere after the 11th of July, the delay to our season and what will inevitably be restricted crowd and game day attendance numbers, means the club is relying solely on support from our loyal existing and past members, as well as the local community and of course our 2020 corporate partners to whom we are extremely grateful.
The impact of the Coronavirus on our small but mighty club has seen thousands lost in figures from lost sponsorship and traditional revenue streams such as our bar, canteen and fundraising events that keep our club going. Without which, our future becomes uncertain and difficult to navigate through.
Now more than ever, your club needs your support.
You may be a long time Baxter fan, a new supporter, a parent who has children who kick the ball at Baxter Park and dream of playing our great game, friends and family of those who support our great club or a local business looking to support local community sport, our club touches so many and has given many men, women and children joy for decades and plan to do so for decades to come.
Your support is critical in helping us continue to achieve our targets and goals set in our Strategic Plan (found on our website).
We ask that although we are in troubling times, if you have the ability to spare anything to help and support our club, we would be eternally grateful for your assistance to allow us to continue to operate and continue to grow and provide the best local sporting experience we can.
We are calling on our passionate community, supporters and members of BSC to make a tax-deductible donation to ensure we can look to the future. We are most aware that many of our family and friends are hurting as well, and that a donation may not be possible at this time. We understand this, so we are appealing to those who can donate to our great club in whatever capacity you are able.
All donations, no matter the amount, will help our club survive. Right now, we need your support more than ever.
Your donation through the Australian Sports Foundation is completely tax-deductible in preparation for tax-time.
