Message from the President - 22/11/2015
Hi Eels Community,
A great day yesterday at the Family Fun Day at our home ground at St. Benedict's. We managed to sign up some new players, got great support from current parents and were able to network with politicians to look at ways they can support us. Thanks to the wonderful volunteer committee, our Director of Coaching, our players and also other volunteer members of the Eels Community who gave up 6-7 hours of their Saturday.
I just wanted to touch base on couple of questions that have been asked regarding next year. I have responded to some parents, but thought it is best to post a general publication for all to read.
As you would had have seen by our flyers, social media posts, web advertising etc., the North Lakes Eels Commitee, the Director of Coaching and the supportive volunteer Eels community are actively marketing for next season. It is our aim to grow North Lakes from the talent that we have at the club and each year increase, so that we can introduce more teams to new age groups. Currently we are actively seeking registrations from under 6's through to under 13's. In order to ensure that we have teams in our own right we need you to sign up early and we need you to be part of the Eels army moving forward and help us recruit the players we need. We have the support of AFLQ who are well aware that North Lakes and the surrounding suburbs are growing areas and the population will continue to increase. The Eels has the potential to be a big junior club and all of us can be a part of something special - but we need to support the club, support each other and most importantly support our boys and girls to make this club great. All the foundations are here.
With regards to the new oval, we are currently negotiating with St. Benedict's with the support of AFLQ and hope to have some news on this soon.
The Eels will continue to be active in sourcing new members to the club and if you would like to lend your support, it will be greatly appreciated. If your local school has advertising on their newsletter etc. then please let us know and we can provide some information to go into it.
In closing and on behalf of the Eels Committee and the Director of Coaching, thanks for all of your support, your engagement and your interest in the future of this great club. Let's build this club together.
