Update for our SBMT community.

Well season 2021 didn’t quite go as planned but we’re getting used to that now. We are becoming brilliantly resilient and flexible in order that we can pivot and take on what ever is thrown our way!
Thank you to all the amazing SBMT members within our club for the work and passion you have maintained throughout these difficult times. Your efforts are appreciated by all.
AFL Grand Final
At the St Bedes/Mentone Tigers we are fortunate to have connections to both of the teams in this year’s AFL Grand Final. As the article from The Age this week states:
“Luke Beveridge’s successful stint coaching St Bede’s Mentone to three consecutive VAFA premierships has been well documented, but his right-hand man during that stretch, Tim Lamb, has had a significant influence on helping Melbourne reach their first grand final since 2000. The two friends will be hoping for different results in the grand final having fought hard for the silverware 15 years ago when Beveridge was a playing coach in C grade with St Bede’s and Lamb was not only the reserves coach but the Beveridge’s eyes and ears on the boundary when the seniors played.”


We wish both teams, Western Bulldogs and Melbourne the very best for tomorrow. I’m sure many Victorians going through tough times at the moment are pleased that regardless of the outcome the silverware will be coming back here afterwards!
SBMT – VAFA Best and Fairest Winners & Vic Metro congratulations!
Congratulations to our SBMT players who have won the VAFA league Best and Fairest awards! Madeline Tilley our Senior Women’s team Captain and David Goodman from our Div 1 U19s both well deserving Best and Fairest winners, with Ethan Hale being awarded third place in the league for the U19s as well. James Mangoni won the leading goal kicker for VAFA B Grade. Brilliantly done all of you in a tough season! 
Congratulations also to Harrison Oliver from our SBMT U15 Boys on his selection to the Vic Metro squad! A great milestone on a journey that’s just beginning. We are so proud of your efforts Harrison, well done! 
SBMT Strategic Planning process
Recently we have had a huge response to our club surveys that went out as part of our SBMT Strategic Planning process. It is wonderful to see our SBMT community responding to the call to be part of the planning for the future of our club! The surveys are now closed and we are in the middle of a series of small focus groups targeting various sections of the club. Coming up soon will be a whole club workshop (invite for online participation to come out next week) as well as a role analysis survey for anyone currently active in a job at the club.
This Strategic Planning process is a large undertaking and not one that we had considered would need to be almost entirely online, so we thank our SBMT community for your patience and willingness to engage in a different way from what we’re used to. 

It will be onwards and upwards into season 2022!
