Please also remember to ensure that you get your child to the games and training 15 minutes before the game or the start of training – as this allows the child time to warm up beforehand – and also for the coach to give them a debrief and appropriately prepare.

Also please ensure you collect your child promptly after training times – it is NOT the responsibility for the coach or other parents to look after your child after the allocated training time.  Please collect children of primary school age directly from the training venue – this is for the safety on your child.  We appreciate your co-operation and understanding.
