Meet the WVSC Committee

Danny Calder
Marketing Manager

How did you come to be part of the WVSC Committee?
At the time I was helping out with coaching the U10 Development Squad and became interested in how I might be able to contribute to the running of the club. I spoke to the then Vice President for the U10-18 Age Group, who convinced me to take over from him!
What are you aiming to achieve in your current role?
WVSC has a solid reputation for being well organised and professionally run. I want to build on this by improving our grading process and our communication with our members. A series of changes over the last few years has meant that the Club’s web site along with our overall image has become outdated. My aim is to refresh the WVSC web site and to consolidate our reputation as the leading community-based club serving both junior and senior players in the Woden Valley area.

Shiree Yap
WVSC Administrator

How did you come to be part of WVSC?
My involvement began in 2002 when my eldest son started playing for Woden Valley in U7s. My four children have all played with WVSC over the past 14 years. During this time I managed many teams with the highlight in 2010 travelling as team manager to Germany with my son’s WVSC U14 team. In 2013, my role moved to club administrator when our previous administrator moved interstate. I feel very proud to be a part of one the largest soccer clubs in the ACT and to work with such a dynamic committee, ensuring all our players have an incredible football experience.

James McKay
Committee Member

How did you come to be part of WVSC?
James has been with WVSC since his son began playing in 2000 and currently coaches the team his daughter plays with. As well as coaching James has also volunteered and been an active committee member in various roles throughout the years since.
What are you aiming to achieve in your current role?
As immediate past President James has a passion for supporting junior members to move into senior grades and helping to build on the establishment of the Woden Weston Football Club as the pathway to Premier League for Woden Valley Soccer Club players. James is also focussed on maintaining relationships with existing sponsors and identifying new ones.


Steve Milutinovic
Match Day Setup Officer

How did you come to be part of the WVSC Committee?
My involvement began in 1994 when my eldest son started playing for Woden Valley. From there I progressed to being coach, committee member and Life member. My teams won many a title but winning the inaugural Kanga Cup for WVSC and following up the year after with another Kanga Cup tops the list. Reaching the quarter finals of the Gothia Cup in Sweden is another of my WVSC football highlights. With the committee’s support, I managed to bring out coaches from Partizan Belgrade for coaching clinics two consecutive years. My three sons all played for the club and I look forward to the day my grandchildren will also. Football is my passion and I have always been impressed with the way WVSC was run with such passion and dedication from others.
What are you aiming to achieve in your current role?
I aim to continue in my role in helping WVSC maintain its leadership and commitment to junior sport. I have travelled to Europe in recent times and have experienced some Football ideas which I believe would work well here. My aim would be to bring these ideas to reality and ensure that WVSC is the leading junior sporting club not only in Canberra but Australia.

VP U10 to U12

What are you aiming to achieve in your current role?

Martin McGlashan
VP Boys 7 to 9

Martin played soccer in the Blue Mountains when he was a kid because there were no aussie rules teams. At 16 he acknowledged he wasn’t very good at soccer so he became a referee.

His love for rules eventually translated into a career in the APS, which brought him to Canberra in 2001. Martin volunteers at the younger levels where judging soccer skills is not a factor, but administration is the focus.

Mark Stoove
VP Girls 13 to 18

How did you come to be part of the WVSC Committee?
Turned up to an AGM after volunteering to be assistant equipment officer in 2012. I have children that play for Woden Valley Soccer Club.
What are you aiming to achieve in your current role?
Ensuring all participants of different age groups and levels of ability are encouraged to make soccer a lifelong sport. Helping coaches to be aware and have easy access to the FFA National Curriculum. It has easy to follow Model Sessions for Youth Development through the building blocks of Discovery Phase, Skill Acquisition Phase, Game Training Phase and Performance Phase.
