As many of you already know a much loved and valued member of our volleyball community, Nathan DeCourcy, recently lost his life in a car accident. Nathan played in our Wednesday Business League competition in the Beard of Bees A grade team. He also offered to help out with refereeing on a regular basis. He was a regular at all USQ trainings and competitions. Basically he just loved to play volleyball any time or day. He was always bubbly, encouraging to teammates and ready to carry out extra duties when needed.
In recognition of his vibrant, colourful presence, Toowoomba Volleyball is introducing a new annual award for the Wednesday night competition which will be known as the Nathan DeCourcy Shining Light award. It will be presented to someone with these same vital, uplifting qualities, as nominated by team captains at the end of the year.
TVA will also be donating, on behalf of all players an amount to a cause close to his heart, Headspace, in lieu of flowers at his funeral.
RIP Nathan. We will all miss you!
