Gus was a great club member: a Club Captain, President, Team Manager, competitor and a supporter and friend to all Hunters for over sixty years. His untimely death by accident in 1990 led the Club to create The Gus Theobald Foundation. The foundation honours his deeds and name, and fittingly its two annual awards reflect the values Gus epitomised and so loved about Glenhuntly Athletic Club:

  • - Contributing to the community of athletes

- Motivating and inspiring youthful club members


Since its launch in 1992, the Foundation has made two Awards each year.


The Gus Theobald Foundation - Achievement Award 
This award recognises the wonderful contribution made to our sport by volunteers.

The Gus Theobald Foundation - Encouragement Award 
The Encouragement Award is awarded to both a junior boy and girl (two awards) and is directed towards enthusiastic, capable young athletes, who shows a sound commitment to team values and good self-management. 


The Foundation is a not-for-profit Trust Fund administered by Glenhuntly Athletic Club. Since its inception twenty-eight years ago, the Foundation has been able to give awards to a value of $28,000. This has been due to the generosity of club members and friends who knew Gus, and to the strong and continuing support of our sponsors. Click here for a list of previous recipients.
