SOME REMINDERS FROM THE MINI SECTION
Indoor training Is available for U10s (6.00 to 7.00pm) and U12s (7.00 to 8.00pm) on Wednesday evenings and is open to all. This format of the game is so beneficial to the outdoor variety that we would encourage everyone to take part. The charge is £3 a go.
Please note that there is no regular training or Little Sticks on Sunday 17th February as this is the half term break. Some of the squads may be organising practises on this day, but players will be advised separately if this is the case. We will be back to normal on the 24th February.
Would anyone like to give umpiring a go? It's not that scarey and we are able to offer a short crash course to help you get underway. Let me know if you are interested.
Balls and bibs have gone walkies. Please check kit bags, etc and return to the Clubhouse. We can't afford to keep replacing them at the current rate.
Social - Grown Ups
It's a long long time since the grown ups in the Minis did a social. Ideas please!
Social - Minis
We have a party (very young ones) and a disco (not so young ones) on the radar - are there any volunteers out there that are brilliant at organising this sort of thing? Help please!
Cancellation Due to Bad Weather
We will be lucky if over the next few weeks we get away without cancelling any sessions, however please note that Minis almost always runs, except in the case of severe frost or snow. We rarely call off sessions due to heavy rain.
If the forecast is for particularly bad weather we will try to monitor and make an early decision, and in these cases emails may be sent out on the Saturday.
As we are always reluctant to cancel, at times we will leave the decision until early Sunday morning. On these days, please watch your emails early doors to check what is happening as I will send out details as early as I can. I know some of the managers are using Whatsapp etc, so you may also hear from them. Please don't text me or call unless an emergency, because I can't cope with the volume!
If we are forced to cancel the Mini sessions, this does also mean that Little Sticks will not be running. We rely on volunteers for this group who are usually at the club due to their own children/siblings taking part in the older sessions. Little Sticks will also be included on the weather updates.
