Welcome to the Committee
The Committee is elected each year at the AGM which is usually in the Spring. However, to support the committee we are always looking for volunteers to help with the tasks involved in running the Club, everything from taking minutes and helping out at events to updating the website and, more obviously, coaching and officiating.
The Club is committed to supporting volunteers and will assist in any training and development needed – volunteering is very rewarding and the Club will help with your development to make it even more enjoyable. Most Committee members are, or have been, parents of young athletes in the Club and/or athletes themselves so please don’t feel that you will not have the necessary skills to offer – you definitely will, and the club will help you develop should you wish. If you think you could spare a few hours or perhaps more and you’d like to get involved just speak to Paula Bird, Club Development Officer.

Club Development Officer
The Club Development Officer’s role on a club night is to offer an effective means of welcoming and informing newcomers to the club.
This role is key to liaising with new parents in particular, advising about the Club and informing of competition opportunities. Also providing a point of contact for information and support for athletes and parents, reducing the pressure on Coaches time, particularly at the general sessions.
