Round 8 has been completed now, and the State Championships takes a short break over the school holidays. This means modification to our training timetable, so please read carefully below. There’s other important news too!
No junior training on Sept 22 and Sep 29
Training for senior and youth players only – Sept 22 and Sept 29 – from 8.30-9.30pm (usual timeslot)
Most team managers have now been given boxes to distribute. Please take one or more to sell. The club makes around 50% of what you sell in profit – so this is a good fundraiser, usually with plenty of willing buyers. These babies are especially sought after around 3pm each work day, and placing them at reception can rake in the big bucks 😉
