It was great to see the large number of kids again turn out in the various age groups last Saturday.

There was the threat of a thunderstorm which resulted in one group having to vacate the field but they were able to return once the lightning had cleared the area and there was no further lightning for 20 minutes which is AIS policy.

Kids collected their Auskick bags and it was a great to see so many smiling faces. We hope that those that didn’t collect their bags last week come forward on Saturday. Also, the small socks have arrived so any child that hasn't picked up their socks please do so on Saturday.

For those training out on the oval, remember to apply sunscreen before heading out into the warm conditions and remember to bring plenty of water and place it at the table under the tent provided for quick access.

Hong Kong Trip

Expressions of interest are still open for the Hong Kong tour on May 18. We currently have interest from 32 kids. In the morning (in Aberdeen) we will kick off a round robin U7, U10 and U13 competition with a number of other Hong Kong Auskick teams. Families are more than welcome.

The ground we will be playing at on May 18th is the Police Training College field in Aberdeen, so it is fairly close to central Hong Kong - about a 15 minute taxi ride. Location is the Police School Road (just opposite Ocean Park): Please click here to see map.

And you can see some photos of the field here.

The format of the day will be a round robin U7, U10 and U13 groups. Current numbers from the expressions of interest is 9, 11 and 12 kids in each age group respectively.

For travel arrangements and logistics please see a member of the committee on the weekend or email sharksfc@ais.com.sg

Next Steps:  This trip is going ahead.  If you would like to confirm your participation please do so ASAP by emailing the name of child and age group to sharksfc@ais.com.sg 

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.

Bali Masters

Unfortunately for the “dads” there will be only one Singapore Sharks team heading to the Bali Masters in June. The team is restricted to 18 members of which those that took part in last year’s game have first refusal.

Those that have already indicated an interest in playing, keep training, as a spot may open up. Even if one doesn’t then you are more than welcome to attend. It’s a great family weekend and the more the merrier are encouraged to come along.

Coaches

Thank you to the fantastic support from the sidelines from the coaches. Some tips from the Auskick website on drills if you had a chance to review – Dale will be scheduling this again for this weekend to formalize.

Sharks give back

Thank you to current member Lionel Kapetanakos for delivering to the Sunrise Children Orphanage in Siem Reap the old style (but near new) footy strips that the Sharks AFL club donated. A very timely delivery for the orphanage as well as a truly uplifting experience to both Lionel and the Sharks alike.

See you again at AIS for training at your allocated timeslots this weekend.

Save the Date: Friday March 22 – AGM at Dallas Bar and also watch the first AFL game of the 2013 Premiership Season – Adelaide Crows vs Essendon from 6pm.
