Update from the Dodgers President, Ashley Cross
Forthcoming AGM, URGENT need for volunteers, and...wait for it...a return to basketball!
Hello to all Dodgers players and families!
Get ready! The GREAT news is that BACT competitions look like they may be able to recommence in mid-July, with the seniors comp starting on 15 July and juniors starting on 24 July.
The season would run through to early December.
See BACT's latest advice here:
I'm sure everyone is looking forward to getting back on the court!!
We are currently working through issues such as the impact on existing paid registrants for the Winter season, the formation of our teams, and the commencement of training etc.
Sean, our fantastic Registrar, will be communicating shortly with those families who expressed an interest in registering for a new season, to have them now formally register and pay their fees (if they want to now proceed to have their junior to play).
If you have already formally registered and paid, you don't need to do anything else at this stage...except get ready to play!
Note that if you have not yet registered and also haven't put in an EOI, but you want your junior to play this season, please get in touch urgently with Sean by this coming Monday (25 May) at firstname.lastname@example.org - and he will send you a link to register.
Annual General Meeting and an URGENT PLEA for new volunteers
Our Annual General Meeting needs to be held soon.
If the capacity to meet in a larger group doesn't open up soon we will organise a virtual AGM via Zoom - we really hope we will get broad participation in this from all our families.
We will make a decision on timing, and how we hold the AGM, before the end of May and will let you know.
All of our volunteer positions will be vacated - and the great news is that there is a job for everyone who wants to get involved!
URGENT NEED for Junior Girls Age Group Co-ordinators
Our numerous calls for people to step up to replace Natalie and Lee to co-ordinate the Under 14, 16 and 19 Girls groups has not turned anyone up.
The situation here is now desperate. We need someone (or a few people) urgently to step up on this.
I call on all parents of girls in these age groups to PLEASE give this role urgent consideration - our capacity to deliver an effective junior program for girls will fragment very soon unless one or two people step forward to volunteer. I'd be happy to discuss the role and what it entails (with no obligation!) - please make contact via email at email@example.com.
Need for new Treasurer - medium term
After terrific service, Danuel will need to vacate the Treasurer's role in the medium term.
He has sound systems in place and can support/train a new person.
Our accounts are in good shape and we are in a sound financial state.
Please get in touch if you have some relevant experience and would like to help the Club in this way.
It is one of the core positions the Club needs to keep filled to be able to function.
My regards to all - and we really look forward to seeing all our players back on the courts in the near future!
