Amanda Stein – Secretary
Amanda first started watching football in 1999, her first thoughts about the game were “Why on earth is Casey going on and off the field constantly?”. Now, 16 years later, she still tells first timers watching a game of football this story just in case they are thinking the same thing! In the Stein house, they eat, sleep and breathe football with a bit of dancing and rugby thrown into the mix. She has been involved in football in WA since around 2000 when she was Secretary to Gridiron West as well as the Westside Steelers for a few years. In 2013 Amanda became Secretary to Gridiron West and she also helped manage the State team, WA Raiders, for the 2014 Australian Gridiron League tournament. She started the role of Secretary & Registrar for West Coast Wolverines in 2011.

He has enjoyed the game and was nominated for the board by a fellow teammate after putting in time to support the club during the season where he could.
April has been with the club since the start of the 2015/2016 season through her university degree which required her to interact and get to know the board, coaches and players to create a business plan for the club. She completed her business plan half way through the season but continued to attend the games to take photos for the club and help the committee and Board where they needed it. This will be her first year on the Board and is looking forward to working with the club. April has a degree in Marketing, Advertising and Public Relations and is currently completing the last unit of her second degree of Sport, Recreation and Event Management.
