Disruptions and delays can happen in the programme, we appreciate your patience. The success of the club running smoothly, is reliant on parent help. It is appreciated if parents/caregivers are able to assist whether it be in setting up equipment prior to starting, storing away at the end of competition, or lending a hand coaching/assisting at each event as your child rotates.
