Under 10's Update from New Super Coach James Vesper

Hi Colts Family,
I hope you and your boys are excited for the game this Sunday!

Unfortunately we had to forfeit our first game last weekend as we completed a national recruitment drive and finalised a few third-party deals. The results, however, look promising as it appears we have a couple of great additions to the team with Cy Matkovic and Max Nearn coming on board. Welcome guys!

Game – Sunday 15th April
The game this Sunday is at Burrows Park, Clovelly against the Leichhardt Juniors. Kick-off time will be advised once I know. The forecast is sunny and 25 degrees, perfect for fast free-flowing rugby league. It is crucial we field a team this weekend after last week’s forfeit, otherwise, our position in the comp might be short-lived. If your son is unable to play this weekend please let me know asap. Also, we need one parent with their LEAGUE SAFE accreditation to run the water. Any volunteers?

Training – Thursday 12th April
We’ll have a meet, greet and training run this Thursday evening at 4.30 – 5.30 at Robertson Rd Fields, Moore Park, opposite Fox Studios. Refer to the attached map for details. There’s normally plenty of parking on Robertson Rd. If 4.30 is too early, just get there when you can. We’ll hand out socks and shorts on Thursday, and jerseys on Sunday. Please bring boots and mouth guards to training, plus headgear if your son wears it.

There are 8 teams in our competition, including 3 from the east and 5 from the Balmain league. The NRL MyLeague App is a great way to keep track of our competition, game details and ladder. If you download the app, open ‘My Team’ in the menu then link our team “Paddington Colts Under 10 Div 2”.

Games will be shared between Burrows Park, Waverley Oval and various fields in the Leichhardt & Balmain areas. There'll be a 7 seater leaving from Coogee every weekend, so let me know if you happen to get stuck for transport.

It’s important that all kids are registered, so please click here to Register if you haven’t done so already. While it is looking like we should have enough players to run on this week, we really need a couple more kids to join the team. Please remind your son to ask any mates if they'd like to play. As incentive….. any kids who introduce a new player will go straight to the top of the goal-kicking list…

Finally, I know there's a couple on this list who are still undecided, but I encourage you to give it a try for a few weeks and then make a decision about the rest of the season. My aim is to make it fun both on and off the field.

Feel free to call me if you'd like to chat about anything. Otherwise, see you Thursday.
