Most of you would be familiar with the volunteers who have key roles with your team – Team Manager, Coach and Assistant Coach. In an attempt to gratefully acknowledge the contribution our many other volunteers make to helping the club run smoothly we are introducing a new newsletter item to thank our ‘Volunteer of the week’. The inaugural award goes to Vinnie Beatty. Not only is Vinnie our Grounds Manager and Committee Member, he has also taken on the joint U14 Girls Team Manager role. Here he is making sure our kids don’t have to land on dog poo, sticks or stones while they’re playing. If you’re up and about early on a Sunday and can help him out in this thankless job please let me know.
In response to various concerns raised by members we have been investigating the merits of applying to change Leagues. A discussion paper with more information will be presented to members in the next few weeks. This is not a decision that the club takes lightly and we will be calling a Special General Meeting to consult with all our members. More details to follow soon.
We have almost distributed the new order of bags and have ordered another lot. If you have not collected one yet please drop by at training – if we have run out again there will be another order arriving soon. We are still waiting on the remaining training tops - sincere apologies for the delay and for the small number of errors/omissions that we have ordered replacements for.
If your player suffers from asthma, anaphylaxis or any other serious medical condition it is your responsibility to make sure that your Team Manager and Trainer have a copy of your current action plan, and that appropriate medication is available at each game and training session.
We take the safety of our players very seriously and our Trainers are instructed to call an ambulance if they are in any doubt as to the wellbeing of any player in their care. We therefore strongly recommend that all families maintain their own ambulance cover to ensure all costs are covered. Our insurance provides refunds of up to 90% of non-Medicare costs up to a defined limit for all players, officials and volunteers; more details are available at https://afl.jltsport.com.au. If your player is injured during a match or at training please make sure your Trainer, Coach or Team Manager knows so that an incident form can be completed to assist with any claims that may result.
The Round 5 fixture has been released: Round 5 Now that grading has finished essentially a “new” competition starts, and some teams may end up playing each other once, twice or even three times over the season. A new grading process was trialled for season 2018 and the NFNL will request feedback at the end of the season, so please forward any comments to email@example.com for collation. The NFNL have advised that the remaining fixtures will be available later this week or early next week. Eight home games this week for what looks like a return to winter footy weather:
The first boxes of our training tops order has arrived and will be distributed via Team Managers. We are expecting the remainder of the order to arrive during the next week. Players who have registered since the order was placed will still receive a training top - it just won’t have their name on the back.
