Throughout the 1980s Dave coached our junior boys. He played and coached our men’s A grade team as well as managing our men’s mighty D grade side. The brick clubhouse at Kingsford Smith Park , jointly operated with Ballina Netball was completed in 1983, largely due to the untiring efforts of Dave Reardon. In 1988 Dave was voted Best Male Club Member. Dave has also represented Australia in the men’s veterans.
Dave was inducted as life member Ballina Hockey Club in 1992.
