All players are required to return their playing bag and jacket to their Coach (or a delegated person) before 13 September in good condition. Ensure you have cleaned your jacket and bag. Any player not returning their gear will be considered nonfinancial and will be ineligible to play netball in 2015 for any club until the gear is returned in good condition or satisfactory reimbursement is made to Technical Netball Club. The Coach will confirm who has not returned their gear. You will be charged the current replacement cost of $37 for backpacks and $62 for jackets.
Coaches should return the team jackets/backpacks and the team gear bag at Junior Prizegiving - Avonhead School on Sunday 14 September between 2pm and 3pm. You also need to give us the list of names and issued gear, marked with who has returned the gear. Check the numbers found on the backpacks and jackets do match those on the list previously supplied to you. Ensure you have cleaned the bibs, gear and bag. Contact Raewyn Pope email@example.com if you need to return it at another time, but before 14 September.
Senior players - please do not bring your gear to Senior Prizegiving, instead ensure you have handed it to your Coach before 14 September.
This will be held in March 2015 and we will be on the lookout for some more people to join us. Generally we meet once a month from January to September. We enjoy superb suppers, the usual discussions and make decisions that affect what happens to your daughter and her netball team. We would love to hear from any of you interested in joining us for next season, particularly from parents of the junior grades.
We welcome your feedback on how things have gone and any suggestions for improvements next year. Either drop an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or drop a line to our PO Box 36 222, or bend the ear of a committee member at the Prize Giving
Looking forward to seeing you all at prizegiving!
Technical Netball Committee.
