June 28, 2020 | Melbourne Boomers news

If you’ve been to a Boomers home game any time in the last four years, you’ve probably seen Kristy Moore repping the Boomers in one of the many roles she’s undertaken for the Club.

Kristy has played a major role in everything from ticketing to customer service to making sure everyone is successfully covered head-to-toe in Boomers’ merchandise. She was also the Team Manager for season 2018-19, showing that she has the ability to put her hand to anything that’s needed.

We could almost say she has helped with recruitment too! Last year, Kristy bought her son Jaxson along to help out on game day as well and he also became an integral part of the volunteer team. In her life outside of the club, Kristy has worked in Libraries and, most recently, as a Customer Service Department Manager at a sports store.

Kristy is an integral cog in the Boomers family, we’re incredibly grateful for her years of dedication to the Club – and we hope there’s many more to come!
