Women in League - Liz Weaver
With four boys under the age of nine, Liz Weaver spends most of her weekend hours at De La Salle Caringbah footy fields watching her kids play junior league, and doing her part to make it all happen.
The Assistant Secretary of the club, Weaver also presides over the clubs finances and fundraiser and says she loves getting involved in making the club tick.
The part-time teacher has organised the De La Salle efforts to raise awareness of breast cancer, supporting the McGrath Foundation’s high tea as a feature of the club acknowledging the role of Women in League.
Weaver said she enjoys her role, and she encourages other women to get involved in junior league.
“I’ve really enjoyed my role down there the last couple of years,” Weaver said.
“I think it’s really important for women to be involved – especially mothers.”
Having supported the Cronulla Sharks since she was three years of age, Weaver says the black, white and blue has been in her bloodlines for a very long time.
“We used to watch it as a family, and my pop went for the Sharks, and we all sat down together and watched it and it was a really big part of our lives growing up, and it still is now,” she said.
“The kids love coming down here, we come down all the time.”
