Presentation Day & AGM

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, our presentation day has been postponed indefinitely.

It is impossible at this point to announce a new date and the ongoing uncertainty and rules make personal trophy collection difficult, with border closures, limited gathering numbers etc.

We will announce trophy recipients and distribute trophies as soon as we are able.

Our AGM is also postponed to an unknown date. We will consider options on how to manage this and advise in due course.

We appreciate your understanding at this time and hope everyone is staying safe, well and active!

Presentation Day Update

We are so sad to advise that our planned Presentation Day in April is now unable to be held 😭. 

We know our athletes and families value this day to celebrate the season and recognise achievements.

We have set up a poll on our Facebook page with the options below if you would like to have input in how to proceed with presenting awards.

Your feedback is highly valued so we can move forward in a way that suits the majority of the club.

 We thank everyone for your patience and understanding while we navigate these unknown times and will advise of the outcome in due course.
