Email Newsletter - 29 September
Well the time is here - the new season is upon us. We thank you for registering and hope that whether you are new or returning you will find the season rewarding for both your athletes and yourselves.
If you are returning, you might see some improvements, with a special area set aside for our junior sharks (U6 - U8).
This week, we also see our Tiny Tots (from 5:30pm) - if you are part of this group you will gather at the back of the equipment sheds in the Tiny Tots area. Other ages will gather at age baskets on the oval ... Please aim to be a bit early so we can start on time (6:00pm).
We ask that if you haven't finalised your registration, to avoid queues and long delays, take your athlete out to the appropriate age basket and then come and see us throughout the evening.
We also strongly suggest you join our closed Facebook group - this will ensure that you are up to date with the latest information
WET WEATHER PROCESS
PLEASE NOTE - Springwood's wet weather process
Our set up crew will assess field conditions (normally around 4:30 - 5:00pm on Friday. We will communicate any changes via our Facebook page.
All indications are that we will have a larger number of athletes than last season, and remind all that the only way we can keep to a program and finish at reasonable time is for as much help as possible.
a) Help - we will need as much assistance with each age group to both control the athletes and ensure the events are run efficiently (Age Marshall, Recording, spiking, measuring, collecting equipment, crowd control). Remember, if you are not assisting, you are required to be outside of the oval. b) No matter if you are helping or not - you are all responsible for the safety of both yourself, your athletes and all other members at the centre - always be aware of your surroundings - where/when are the throws, jumps, track events happening. With large numbers on the oval, we really need ALL to maintain awareness. Although its great to see athletes running around, we all need to ensure that they are running in the correct places ie on the track in a race, not in the discus quadrant or around high jump mats.
Our canteen will be operational throughout the season, offering a range of snacks and meals to purchase.
NOTE - the canteen is run by volunteers. This season, to assist the canteen co-ordinators, we are rostering 2 helpers from the age groups to assist them. All training is provided - and we only need 1 volunteer from each group
Competition Evening #1 -
