A good discussion took place on the Club’s main priorities for the year ahead including, fundraising; to cover the ever increasing costs of running our Club, the 2024 athlete programme, Insurance and affiliation fees and volunteer recruitment.

Additionally, the new membership online system (“Just Go”) for athletes and volunteers is being rolled out to all affiliated Clubs this year, which will streamline what has been a very ‘paper based’ registration
process in the past.

We are also anxious to increase our volunteer numbers. The commitment is one evening per
week. [Note: We train indoors at the Presentation Sports hall each Wednesday from 7:00pm 8:00pm.]
