Update from the Chair #1

Updated: May 4, 2020

Hi Fellow Members of the Yellow and Black Army,

Welcome to the 2020 Season – a season that I am sure will continue to see the Tigers grow and improve.

It is exciting to know that our Roadshow in schools’ program is fully subscribed and we look forward to gaining many new members from this program. Thank you to the people who are assisting with this program. I will give a full report in the next edition.

The Board remains the same as 2019 and we welcome back several of our coordinators and are also excited also to see new faces taking on roles for 2020.

Board: Lyn Tout, Heinz Freisler, Adam Davies, Jayden Street and Holly Stewart.

Coordinators: Daniel Manzie (Men), Lesley McLaughlin (Women), Caro Dixon (Grants & Sponsorship), Jacob Freidl (Maintenance) Peta Swanton & Craig Blake (Umpire development), Debbie Freisler (Results & women’s Chair of Selectors), Glenn Lloyd (men’s Chair of Selectors), Lynda Tivendale (MPIO), Jess Falduto and Caitlin Spence (Social Media & Marketing).

We still need to fill a few roles – check these out and see which one you could take on (you can always do it with a mate!)

Men’s section Treasurer - responsible for fee management, including sending invoices, following up on overdue fees, managing time plans, etc

Social Coordinator – great role for two or more people working together - to plan and conduct social events throughout the year

Inclusion coordinator – working with others to ensure Whole of Club Training night, Men’s, Women’s and Fair Go Sports rounds are organised, promoted and conducted

Social Hockey coordinator – to organise social hockey including summer and if possible, a social hockey during winter for those not involved in main competition. This also encompasses liaising with others for events such as the Indo/Aus Diwali Tournament.

Fees for 2020.

Currently due to setting up a new accounting system we are not able to issue invoices, but you are encouraged to pay your fees asap. 2020 playing membership fees form will be emailed to all players, if you need any assistance please contact your section Coordinators ans discuss with them. The Club receives several significant accounts in January and February – including power bill and Hockey Victoria affiliation and team entry fees. Payment of fees enables us to be able to pay these in a timely manner without having to withdraw from our Facilities Development fund.

We will be enforcing our NO PAY NO PLAY. You need to be financial by no later than the Tuesday before round 1 of your respective competition. If you need to discuss your payment schedule, please contact your section coordinator, Jayden Street or myself as soon as possible.

Coaches for 2020 for the women – Sam Winch & Jodi Dumbleton – head coaches; Maryanne Pernice – seconds; Debbie Freisler & Lyn Tout – thirds.

The Men’s coaches are still being finalised.

Senior preseason has started on Tuesday and Thursdays and we look forward to good turnout to ensure we are the best we can be on the field in 2020. Contact your section coordinators for more info.
