Welcome back to all our parents and players and a huge welcome to those new to the club in 2015. We hope you’ve enjoyed the last couple of training sessions and familiarised yourself with our coaches and some of our team members.
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Zane’s mum and I will be the team’s manager this year. At this stage we are still in the process of compiling all necessary documents required by the SJRU in order for your boys to play. Below is a list of what I need from you all before our season commences.
Firstly and most importantly, please make sure you all pay for your registrations asap.
I will also require a copy of your son’s passport or birth certificate (if you haven’t done so already) which will confirm we have him playing in the appropriate age group. You can email me a copy or bring it to the next training session where I can sight it and confirm his age. This is a requirement to play and settles any discrepancies that other club managers may have regarding the age of our players.
At this stage, we do not have details of games for the season but I will advise you as soon as the SJRU make these available. I can tell you that there will be approximately 14 rounds, plus finals, on weekends, but avoiding school holidays. Every week, we run a parent volunteer roster where each family take it in turns to take home and wash the jerseys, bring the oranges or be Field Marshall at a game.
Our training night is every Tuesday night at 5:30 to 6:30pm but please arrive at 5:15pm for a warm up before our training session. Be sure to bring a mouthguard, water bottle and head gear if you have it.
This Sunday, our club is having our season opening Welcome Day at Camperdown Oval from 3:00pm – 5:30pm.(Flyer attached) There will be a BBQ, jumping castle, a boot swap (swap boots that no longer fit), and loads of Petersham gear for sale (caps, t’shirts). There will also be TriForce playing gear available for sale (mouthguard, headgear) and all our players who have paid their registration fees will receive their Petersham JRUFC training shirt, shorts and socks. Please note that if you have not paid, you cannot receive your training gear.
We hope you all can make it this Sunday and look forward to meeting everyone.
