** email sent to all club families today re 2018 preparations**
Hi Tigers Families
We had a very full turn out at the 2017 Presentation, a great celebration of a terrific year for our kids and we
This email is to reach out, particularly to our younger families.
The Bangor Tigers have passionate and committed parents as Committee Members, Coaches and Managers who are almost all returning and will keep the club growing in a consistent and positive direction. However, as families move into older age groups and as some retire from junior sport, we need to keep adding to the Committee from our younger ages each year.
General Committee Members - It is important we have representation across our ages. Given 100% of the Executive Group will return to their 2017 roles, there is no pressure to take a significant role in your first committee year.
Our AGM is in 3 weeks; 7.30pm Wednesday 22nd November at Club Menai.
Please give some thought to joining. The commitment is to contribute your thoughts at a monthly meeting and represent the views and needs of your children’s age group as we make decisions that will affect their experience as a Bangor Tiger.
Please lift the phone to me or any other Committee Member if you would like to find out more.
Auskick Coordinator – Sascha Bass has been wonderful in this role over several years, though in 2018 Sascha and Shaun’s youngest son, Lachlan, will be in his final AK year, Shaun will be coaching the U11s in their first competitive season and Sascha will be the Manager of that team.
Ideally our new Coordinator will come from the younger Auskick years and provide continuity over the next couple of seasons. I have seen this role managed in different ways and an important note is that you can shape it to your availability and needs. Everyone puts their own stamp on it.
The role is the conduit between the AFL, our Committee and our families. Occasional Regional Coordinators meetings and our Committee Meetings are the major time commitments, as well as working with the AK Coaches and Club Committee to make sure we have the resources in place for home games and that we have a “go to” person for Swans visits, ½ time on the SCG and similar events.
Again, please lift the phone if you would like to chat it through, or shoot me a reply email if you have any questions.
Playing a role in your kids footy club is a terrifically rewarding thing to do and from my own experience it really enhances my boys enjoyment of being in the club. I think it contributes to them feeling strongly that it is their club.
I know you will be immersed in summer sport right now, but the offseason is when we need to fill these positions, so please give me a call if you have an interest.
