Emmetts supports sports teams and sports facilities across Western Victoria and South Australia through sponsorship. Small communities rely on these clubs for a variety of reasons, some of which include; socialising, entertainment, commradare and physical activity.
Twelve year old Lily lives in Warracknabeal and trains with the Warracknabeal swim club. Based on her performance at a Wimmera Swimming Competition she was selected to swim in Melbourne at the juniors.
In Melbourne she achieved 12th out of 45 in her 50m backstroke and 16th out of 45 in the 50 m freestyle. When the Warracknabeal pool is closed, Lily trains in Horsham 3 to 4 times a week. She is continually working to beat her personal best. In January she will spend some time training with the Melbourne Vicentre Swim Club.
Lily approached Emmetts Warracknabeal to sponsor her to assist in some of the travel cost, which the Warracknabeal branch was happy to do.
Emmetts wishes all of the young country athletes success as they pursue their goals.
