Keep an eye on Facebook / Twitter for updates on fixtures due to the current weather conditions.

 

Juveniles

Nursery / Naoinra

Due to the very poor weather conditions last Saturday, the Nursery was cancelled for the first time in a long time - I'm sure the 'lie in' was appreciated by some!

 

Under 8s - 11s

The teams are continuing to train on Saturday morning now that the fixtures are complete for the year.  Midweek training is on hold until early in the New Year.  The Mentors & Coaches made sure that all the participants had a good run out last Saturday which kept everyone warm on a pretty miserable morning!

 

Juvenile/Family Membership Subscriptions

The new Juvenile and Family membership year is upon us.  The year runs from October 2015 to end September 2016. 

Membership fees are €90 for Juveniles and €250 for Families (i.e. 2 parents/guardians and their children aged under 18).  The fees go towards Coaching costs, registration, insurance, equipment and other expenses.

Subscriptions can be paid online at www.scoilgaaa.com  or in the Clubhouse on each Saturday morning in November to Dominic Morgan, Treasurer or directly to your team mentor.  

Forms are available in the Clubhouse, on the website on our 'Resources' page or from your mentor.  

 

Club AGM

The Club AGM is scheduled for Thursday 26th November in the Clubhouse at 8pm.  All members are invited to attend.  Have you considered 'stepping up' and getting involved in helping to organize the Club activities - there are lots of areas where help would be welcome so please keep it in mind!

 

The Club accounts will be available for review in advance of the meeting.  Club Treasurer Dominic Morgan will be in the Clubhouse tomorrow Thursday 19th November to give any Adult Members the chance to review the accounts.

Volunteer Night

We're holding a special 'Volunteer Night' on Friday 20th November in the Club.  The night is open to everyone involved in supporting the Club throughout the year.  This is an opportunity to meet up with volunteers working in all areas of the Club whether managing / coaching teams, helping in the shop, on the bar roster, helping with administration or any other aspect you are welcome to drop in on the night.  Drinks will be priced at €2 and there will be finger food also.  As our Volunteers are priceless we want to acknowledge their support from the Club while meeting new friends!
