SUMMER SEASON FEES

 

As you would be aware,  the  expenses  in running your household continue to grow and unfortunately,  so  are  the expenses  in  running  our  club.   Our training costs at the Community Centre have risen some 50% over the past 2.5 years and team registration fees and weekly team sheet fees have been steadily increasing.

Despite all of this, we’ve decided to keep the fees for next season for most children, the same as they were this season.  Unfortunately, Dandenong U9’s and U10’s fees have had to go  up $20.00,  due to  Dandenong  Basketball  Association  introducing  team sheet payments of $9.00 per week per team.  With the continuing growth in our expenses, we ask that everyone please pay any fees that are still outstanding and to please pay their summer season fees by the following due dates :-

 

1st     installment of       $65.00 by 31.08.02

2nd    installment of       $50.00 by 12.10.02

Dandenong U9’s &10’s are $40.00 per installment, due by the same dates.

 

Our sincere thanks for your understanding and co-operation.

 

Charles Heap

Treasurer

A MESSAGE REGARDING

UPDATING TEAM LISTS

 

We have had a number of players who remain on the team lists given credit for a game where the player and club have argued it is a scorer's error.
In these particular cases the extra game was their third and they were then unable to play for their original

team.
There  is nothing we can do if this happens as the score sheet will

always be taken as proof.
The team manager should assist the team's cause by striking out the name
of any player who is not going to be a member of that team to remove the
chance that a scorer might

inadvertantly tick the wrong player.

 

 


ASSESSMENT NIGHTS

 

Many  thanks  to

all those who attended

the assessment nights

held last month.

 

 

Although there were

many players in attendance

of varying abilities, it provided invaluable information for

the co-ordinators to assess

 the children’s development,

progress and skills.

 

 

We would like to thank all those who helped on the eveinings.

 

COACHES

 

We would like all those coaching Under 11 and 12 teams to submit a BRIEF report for publication in the next newsletter. 

Also,  those  coaches  whose  teams  have made the  finals at Dandenong, please let us know how your teams have progressed.

 

Please forward these reports to your coaching director by the end of September for inclusion in the October edition.                

                  

Thankyou.
