Hi All Kangaroo players and families,
Well the season is nearly upon us and to start the year with a great celebration our Gala Day is on this Sunday 6th March at Tom Hunter Park from 9.30am – 12 noon. The day is designed to be a chance for players and families to either reconnect from previous years or meet new players and families as well as have a chat with coaches and committee members. There will also be the chance to finalise any outstanding registration issues, try on uniforms and purchase any other gear you may wish to have. We will have an eftpos machine available.
This year we would like to spend 10 minutes with each age group to chat about the season ahead, answer any questions and give everyone the chance to meet each other. If you are only planning to drop in for a few minutes try to schedule this with the below times.
Players will be able to take part in a number of activities run by our coaching team (make sure you wear your boots and bring water!!!) and there will be some surprises and prizes across the day as well as a free sausage sandwich, drink and packet of chips for everyone.
– Timetable for the day –
- 9.30 Registration and uniform table open until 12 noon
- 10.00 Players to assemble in centre of ground to meet coaches for activities
- 10.20 Auskick parents meeting
- 10.30 Under 9s and 10s parents meeting

BBQ will be operating across the morning and we will let everyone know when ready, whilst we won’t be handing out tickets we ask that all parents help in monitoring how many times their child comes back to the BBQ…especially for soft drinks!
We will need some helpers on the day – particularly on the BBQ, if you can assist please let me know by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), and what times you are available.
If it happens to rain day will still go ahead but activities on the oval will not occur if ground is unsuitable or closed – please still come along for BBQ and meetings.
Can I ask you to continue to encourage any friends to come along on Sunday to try AFL and meet with coaches and players.
Look forward to seeing you all on Sunday
