This week I implore all our members to focus on their behaviour at this weekend’s games. This is a directive coming from the league following a lapse in appropriate conduct at all clubs across the league.

Please remember that this is JUNIOR sport, and while it is competitive, the focus should always be on participation, fun, fairness and respect.

With this in mind, I should also mention that 80% of the umpires in our league are under 18 years of age and are doing the best they can – which will only get better with support and encouragement, rather than abuse and ridicule.

This Sunday night we are celebrating the Under 14’s age group.

Come along and hear from the coaches and meet the players.

As always EVERYONE from all age groups within the club is welcome to come down and enjoy the free pizza (for the players) and budget priced meals for mums and dads.

I look forward to seeing you all there.
