Plans for season 2020 are now underway and will look a little different to how it has looked in previous years so if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Carolyn Keast or Bern Boxer to discuss.

NOTE :1) Before committing your daughter to Saturday trials we ask that you consider your availability across the season. The Saturday competition is extremely competitive and we require all girls to commit to the season. If you know that you are going on an extended family holiday or your daughter has an extended school camp/trip that will impact the season, we would like you to discuss this with us before the trials begin please. This is a club policy we would like you to support as we play a team game and we want to make sure our teams aren’t jeopardised during the season. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
