Parents & Supporters Information

 

The Parents' Supporters Association has been set up to help coaches in the organisation of activities and fundraising. (Please see the charter below). In order to support our juniors we value your help and support throughout the year.

Please get in touch if you can help:

  • Organise transportation

We’d love to hear from you, if you would like to offer your assistance in any way - please send an email to:

Please note that all parents are welcome in the clubhouse. Feel free to come upstairs and relax in the warmth of the crew room, or when weather permits - the sunshine of the balcony, while you are waiting for your children.
