Thank you for visiting the Website. With all of the restrictions that were put in place and the abrupt end to the 2019 / 20 season we hope everyone is starting to get enthused about the 2020 / 21 season that lays ahead.
AGM 29th June @ Scott Reserve 7pm start - All welcome. See emails for details.
While things have been dormant from playing activities and gatherings at Scott Reserve there has been a number of significant projects progress, including:
Refurbishment of Turf training pitches
Refurbishment of Main Turf Playing block on Scott 1
We thank WASTCA board for their support on the above project and the funds they contributed
Installation of the Light towers around scott 2 and 3 has now occured and the lights are being commissioned - you wont miss the 30 metre towers
We thank Bendigo bank for their large input to the costs of this project as well as the Shire of Kalamunda (in particular Brayden the project manager) in a job well done. And Floyd Sullivan who was the key driver behind the project and arranged to pull all of the funding and applications together.
New alarm and cctv system
We thank the City of Kalamunda for a $1000 grant towards this cost
Honour board digitisation - project just starting. WIll address the issue of running out of wall space and the significant cost to replace and update the old style boards
So as you can see things have been extremely busy. Frank has been his busy usual self in making sure we keep getting things done and in driving for a successful lead in to the new season.
We are still waiting details of what is being arranged with the winter sport seasons and how that may impact the summer sport seasons. Obviously with many grounds shared between the sports across the metropolitan area this affects the availability of grounds potentially at the front end of the season. As soon as we know the details of this we will let everyone know.
We will also open registrations for seniors and juniors as soon as we know the details. When we do this we would also call for nominations for Junior coaches and managers. This has not been done for many seasons as we generally point the finger at someone and coerce them into it. We are aware that there are others that may harbour an interest and sometimes a variety of coaches across the kids playing is a great thing. We also do not know how the current situations with Covid have affected the many people involved. We definitely encourage all of our existing coaches to put their hand up again as you all do a wonderful job. If you are interested please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will advise you when this is open.
We are also working with the Shire and associations to try and keep costs down this year as we know many people will be facing some difficult times and we do not want people sacrificing their love of the game because of this. As usual if anyone is in this position when it comes time to decide on playing then please speak to us and we will do whatever we can to help.
Please continue to support our sponsors wherever you can as many of these businesses will also be hurting. THis is the time to really show them the benefit of being part of our club.
Look forward to a catch up and beer soon
