CHILD SAFETY OFFICER
I’m John Coutsouvelis, the DJFC Child Safety Officer.
Our family has been with the DJFC for 9 years. Starting with our son James at Auskick, he is now playing with the U16s team and has fond memories of winning a premiership with the U13s. My daughter Alexandra is playing with the U14s mixed team and has relished improving her footy skills over the last couple of years. Our youngest daughter Elia favours netball as her sport of choice but does enjoy the Sunday family nights at Schramm’s and a few dim sims on game day!
I’ve enjoyed various roles within the club as a parent volunteer for the different tasks required on game day, especially trainer. Over the last few years I’ve helped at committee level as the first aid officer, which also included ensuring the club was covid compliant during those tough times.
During my time at the club, I have been able to meet many of our families and am sure have built friendships that will likely remain beyond our time at this club. I’m proud to say I attended numerous games across every team last year and it was a joy to see our motto ‘where friendships begin’ truly living up to expectations!
I am Melbourne born and raised and currently work at the Alfred hospital as pharmacist.
I’m friendly, approachable and always available to chat about your child’s well-being related to the club. If you have a child safety idea, question or concern, you can touch base on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0412 403 104. Feel free to connect with me anytime
