Summer Sports Notice – Term 1 2019
When you sign up to play a team sport, you are committed to that team to play each week unless you let the coach know prior. When you do not turn up for your game or you arrive late, you are letting your team down so please ensure you arrive on time.  Once teams are finalised a team contact list will be emailed to each family to ensure everyone is contactable.  If your child needs a ride to the grounds, please contact someone on your list.

All permission slips are due back by Monday 11th February. These can be returned either by email or hard copy.
