The day was attended by over 60 families.
This included members from Singleton who were part of the joint venture U17 team this season.
Prior to the official presentations families enjoyed adventure activities around the camp.
The Giant Swing and Flying Fox helped some players overcome their fears and take the plunge to participate.
The official presentation started with the Auskickers receiving their playing medallions, then presentations took place for the U9s, U11s, U13s and U17s teams.
President Mr Mark Edgar said to News of the Area, “I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of the coaches, assistant coaches, and team managers for a wonderful season growing and guiding their teams this year.”
“Great efforts were made by all of our parents and caregivers, who bring their kids to training and matches, cut up the oranges and wave the flags, a huge thank-you.”
“Finally, to our hard working committee who work tirelessly behind the scenes, without you, Game Day would not happen, so thanks for all your support this year.”
At their own presentation night, the women’s team also celebrated their season.
Ms Kayla Pennicott from the Senior Women’s team was named the Best and Fairest for the season.
