Scott Filliponi
Sport Award

Scott Filliponi was recruited into Chadstone Lacrosse Club 16 years ago following clinics at his primary school for the club’s under 13s team. Scott is a true sportsman and when reaching the under 17s, he helped coach the younger teams including the under 15s Nationals in 2006.

He later stepped forward and led the whole men’s squad with coaching the club’s highest graded team for three years in the top grade (State League from 2012 – 2014).

Scott has won numerous club awards including: The Vaille Cup twice (awarded to the player who contributes most to benefit the club), the Everest Cup (most improved), and various other encouragement and coach awards.

In 2014, Scott represented Victoria at the Senior Men’s Lacrosse Australian Championships, and this year, was selected for the Australian team to play in the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship in New York later in the year.

Scott has contributed to the club significantly in many ways including managing a junior referee roster, seeking suppliers, organising club uniform and apparel orders, organising social events and being the club’s administrator and main liaison point with international contacts. Scott is currently in the role of Senior Men’s Team Coordinator.
