I asked Kevin, who I know as the Sports Chaplain at NAFC and who looks after the Welfare of players, to help me with my Year 12 project about Drugs in youth, in presenting to my fellow year 12’s, 11’s, and 10’s at Riverton High school.
Kevin facilitated a session including four types of drugs, giving us a insight into what the drugs were, detailing the effects, and the community organisations where anyone can get help for themselves or others, to get more information and help if we are ever in need of it.

Kevin's session was very interactive allowing the students time to share their knowledge before reinforcing the information in regards to the drugs.

The North Adelaide Football Club is very fortunate to have the services of Kevin Bateman as our Club Chaplain. Kevin is a passionate servant of our football club who has built strong relationships with players, coaches, support staff and administration over the 6 years he has assisted in this vital role.

 

Kevin forms an important part of our player welfare structure which provides assistance to all of our players and staff. Kevin has assisted in debriefing players from our men’s and women’s programs following tragic deaths in the last two years.

Kevin provides one on one communication, not only at the club but also in his own time. Kevin has assisted a number of our players through some tough times and also visits players and staff when sick, in hospital for surgery or those that are just after some guidance and care.

 

Kevin has also educated himself over this time through his accreditation as a medical trainer which gives him the opportunity to provide support and be a part of the team on game day. Kevin has assisted with the senior men, women and our junior development programs.

 

Kevin goes above and beyond in his commitment to the people involved within our football family and the North Adelaide Football Club gives the highest of recommendations to the service that he provides.
