President’s Message: Round 9

Hi All Sharks,

As we move into the second half of the season the pressure rises and things start to become a little more serious.  As I have previously stated, I am not one bit about winning but about involvement, so I encourage you all to enjoy the experience and if success is a by-product of participation then all ends well.  Good luck for the second part of the year, remain involved, and thanks for all your support.

Sharks Ball – A Touch of Brownlow – Saturday 26 July 2014!

Education Evening – Wednesday 6 August 2014!

Each year the Sharks Junior Football Club hold an education evening on topical issues impacting our community.  This year’s topic is ‘Mental Health In Sport’ which will take a look at the pressures often associated with being successful whether at school, sport or in life and the by-products of these pressure on our children. More information will be provided closer to the date.

We Need You – please consider coming onto committee!

We are always seeking support on Committee so if you are in a position to assist in 2015 can you PLEASE give me a call.

At the moment there are people performing roles on committee who do not have children at the club, and I know that at the end of Season 2014 will see a number of vacancies – football department, equipment, merchandise, canteen, general.

Unfortunately, without support things will suffer or fold, so please give me a ring and we can discuss the vacancies and what these roles entail.  I took on the role of President because I was told someone has to have a turn, I hope it is a simple as that!

Sharks survey!

The Sharks is receiving good patronage.  The survey was developed to assist in setting the future direction of this wonderful club. Unfortunately, some anonymously-comments raise issues that I would like to tease out to address.  So, if at any stage during the season you wish to raise issue with me – positive or negative – please feel free to do so either personally or via the telephone.

Wishing all the very best for Round 10. Please enjoy yourselves.  Go Sharks!!!!
