Fixtures from the respective leagues continue to be received and put on the website. We hope to have all these on the Google Calendar in the next couple of days, including Junior West Yorkshire. If you get asked for availability, please respond asap to make the coordination easier. Parents of younger athletes, see if you can bring your daughters to watch Premier or Northern League games when they are at Headingley Campus, as these are a good way to watch a great standard of netball locally!
I can’t emphasise enough the importance of everyone reading this. It contains must of what you need to know. Here is a link: http://www.leedsathleticnetballclub.org.uk/club-info.html. Some good advice for us as parents in here in terms of how to support our athletes and help them manage their expectations and fulfil their potential etc! We don't always manage to behave well!!!
We will put these on the website next weekend, after most squads have had their second training session, although these will have the usual health warnings on them about subject to change/no guarantee of court time etc.
PARENT INFORMATION EVENING/PARENT HELPERS
There will be an important meeting for parents of U14/16 (and of younger seniors) at GSAL on Thursday 15 September at 7pm, with Anna and Maggie. Athletes who are not training are welcome to attend. U12 and U11 parent information meetings will also be organised in the coming weeks. These meetings will emphasise all that is written in the Club Handbook and bring this to life. It is a great opportunity to ask the coaches questions and understand our approach to running the Club. It will also cover aspects of "off court" club development such as safeguarding and communications. If you speak to the coach after the meeting, please respect that others will want to do that too!
Immediately after this meeting, there will be an opportunity for all those who offered to help to see what roles remain to be filled and how people can help with the running of the club.
Please take a look at the rules for the league you are playing in! Links to most of the leagues are on the relevant page of the Club website. It is the athlete’s responsibility to understand these rules and comply with them. Parents also need to familiarise themselves with the code of conduct that is in the Handbook and on England Netball website. As a Club we are responsible for how our athletes and parents behave, if anyone contravenes the code of conduct it will be the Club Team in that league that will lose points!
FORMS AND FEES
If anyone (particular seniors) has any outstanding forms to complete and hand in, please bring them this week. Go on Club Info page of the website and print the Club form and the relevant EN form for your age.
GOOD LUCK/WELL DONE
Here’s hoping all those trialling for stuff this month (county, Leeds Rhinos etc) are successful. Good luck to Laura, Alice, Nat and Georgia off to England Camp at Loughborough next weekend.
Thank you, as ever, get in touch if you have any queries.
