Last Saturday was the second week back after the festive Lunar New Year break and the kids are really starting to get into the swing of AFL football.

The skill program is starting to shine through and the kids are making leaps and bounds, and hopefully within the next couple of weeks the older kids will start to play games.

It has been fantastic to see the involvement of parents – not just the dads but the mums as well – in lending a hand to co-ordinate training. It certainly keeps the kids enthusiastic with a shorter waiting time between skill sets and we encourage those that may be a little shy in helping out, not to be, as the more the merrier.

We would also like to mention the great work being conducted at the barbeque each week which really is a thankless task. We are reaching out to the broader Singapore Sharks Football Club community for help with this. We are looking for some dedicated volunteers to help on a rotating basis. This takes in liaising with the ordering of the sausages, bread, ketchup, mustard and soft drinks etc as well as having a roster set-up during the day for each age group. If you are willing to help can you please drop us an email at sharksfc@ais.com.sg

Hong Kong Trip

The Hong Kong tour on May 18 is approaching and there is still plenty of room left open for those wanting to participate. There will be games for U7’s, U10’s and U13’s and it should be a fantastic weekend with football on Saturday and a possible trip to Hong Kong Disneyland for those who may wish to go.

Please send us an email at sharksfc@ais.com.sg with the name of the child, date of birth and the age group if you are interested in attending this tour.

Also Expressions of interest are still open for the Melbourne trip for the AFL game at half-time between Hawthorn and West Coast at Etihad Stadium on June 21 and a game against Ivanhoe on Sunday June 23. Again families are more than welcome and again, do email sharksfc@ais.com.sg with your interest.

NEW MEMBERS EVENING INCORPORATING THE AGM

Our first social event of the year will be on March 22 which happens to coincide with the opening match of the AFL season between Adelaide and Essendon with the opening bounce timed for 5.40pm.

We are promoting the evening as the “Big welcome to our New Members” and at the end of the Adelaide – Essendon game will be the AGM for the Singapore Sharks Football Club.

The opening night of the AFL season has always proved a popular night, but unfortunately spots are limited.

The night will be held at: Dallas Bar (Boat Quay), 3rd Floor. Finger food will be provided and it’s on a first in basis, so RSVP here.

Vacancies

With another great turn up last Saturday we are still open to taking on newcomers, in particular the Year 4 & 5 group, so if you know of anyone that may be interested then encourage them to come on down.

Out of Bounds areas

There has been some feedback from AIS that children have been found playing in the store room and in the pool areas during and after training. The Singapore Sharks Football Club only has access to the big gym during the pre-school activities from 4-5pm and the other gyms are off limits, as is the pool. We seek parental help in keeping the children from these off-limits areas.
