First full set of matches this weekend, with first Netball NIghts last Wednesday, West Yorkshire seniors today and a few junior and senior matches tomorrow. Best of luck to everyone. Let's make sure that the website gets updated with scores and, if possible, match reports!!! Huge thanks to all the coaches who are already working really hard to make sure we get off to a good start this season, we are getting positive feedback about all the sessions, which is great. The two hours for U12 and above seems to be working well. Squad lists will also be on the website this weekend.
Parent Information Meeting
Thanks for the great attendance at the meeting this week. Appreciate Maggie, Kylie and Susie covering their areas and being so informative. Please will those attending pass the info on to those not present. Please use the website and the handbook as your main sources of info! We have most forms and lots more fees in now, thanks. Massive thanks to Bobbie and Mark who have been sorting affiliations, no easy task! Louise will be ordering kit, again this is a big job so thanks.
There were a couple of people came and offered to volunteer after the parent meeting, thanks. We have parent helpers in each age group, which will be on the website next week, which is great. Some other specific jobs - support for treasurer, merchandise, safeguarding and secretary, so that these big things don't just rest with one person. Tim would like a couple of volunteers to help with social. If anyone wants a tuck shop, we need volunteers. If we have any Comms/website experts, that would be great! Email me! Likewise, if anyone wants to learn to coach, get in touch! Club AGM is 8 October.
Training this Thursday will be back at GSAL - 7:45-9:45pm, unless you're trialling for SuperLeague (which is at Beckett).
Given the crossover between club and Jets, here's a quick update. Fixtures have been announced this week and we have announced a major new signing, Stacey Francis, who has 50 England caps and SL titles with Bath. We hope for more exciting announcements in the next few weeks. There'll be some pre-season games announced soon, and we will be expecting support. Watching top flight netball is a great way to learn and develop your own game. You can also sign up for workshops and camps through the Jets website or follow on Twitter or sign up for updates on the Jets website.
Will be in touch tomorrow with results of the weekend. Let's also hope for success in RWC2015 for whoever you support and especially that the two matches in Leeds go well!!
