Bankstown Sports Club is proud to announce that Duty Manager Daniel Warren has been selected to take part in the ClubsNSW Kokoda Youth Leadership Challenge.
Staff at clubs in Sydney’s west and southwest were given the opportunity to submit an entry to take part in a once in a lifetime trip to trek the Kokoda trail, and Daniel was successful in securing a spot in the group.
As part of his application, Daniel detailed his family’s history of service in the Australian Army, with his father giving over 26 years of service and his grandfather serving 2 years in Gallipoli. He also acknowledges the impact that history has on his current role at the club, and how it inspires him to become a better leader.
Daniel will leave on August 1 to join 15 other future leaders in the clubs industry, who will trek more than 150km over 10 days.
He says he still can’t believe he’s going on the trip and says it’s such a great honour.
“Walking the Kokoda Trail is something I have wanted to do since I was a teenager. I have always been involved in ANZAC day commemorations with my dad and it means so much to be able to experience first-hand, the history of Kokoda and what our soldiers went through.
“I would like to sincerely thank ClubsNSW for giving me this opportunity”.
Bankstown Sports Club would like to wish Daniel all the best on his adventures!
